Can COVID-19 Infect Pets?

Can COVID-19 Infect Pets?

Although COVID-19 remains primarily a human-to-human disease, various other species including felines and canines have tested positive for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infections.

It’s extremely rare for pets to get seriously ill from COVID-19.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • The virus that causes COVID-19 can spread from people to animals during close contact.
  • The risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people is low.
  • Pets can get serious illness from infection with the virus that causes COVID-19, but this is extremely rare.
