This story has made the news today and we know pet owners will be concerned.

We think it’s important to reiterate this point from our Regulatory Body, the British Veterinary Association:
“While pet owners may be worried by this news, we’d like to emphasise that there continues to be no evidence that infected pets can pass Covid-19 to their owners. There have been a tiny number of cases of Covid-19 in domestic animals worldwide and in all cases, it appears likely that the transmission was from infected humans to animals.”
