I wanted to start a new Thread on the threat of the dreaded and lethal Covid-19 Virus on dogs and the potential transmission to and by humans. There seems to be little information on the issue as the focus is on humans, but I have read that this virus easily transmits from and among a variety of animal species, including humans. Reports suggest that many humans have no symptoms but can carry and pass the disease, and I would suspect that it is even more difficult to determine whether a dog or other pet might be carrying the virus. Since our dear dogs quickly engage in body contact with other dogs and sometimes humans, I have heard that it is prudent to confine your dog inside rather than risk contracting or transmitting the virus. Does anyone have any information on this? I have not seen and warnings or advice, which makes me wonder whether the issue is just being swept under the rug in light of the need to walk our dogs on a regular basis.
