How COVID-19 Can Effect Your Dog?

COVID-19 is is a viral infection that can transfer from infected to a healthy individual. This virus has created a panic situation until now. No one can get even a single clue about this virus. In today’s topic, we will discuss how COVI-19 can transfer from dogs. The dogs can be affected if they touch an infected person. We will also discuss the precautionary measures if you are COVID-19 positive. Also, we will discuss how you can save your dog in such circumstances? So let start our today’s topic.

What Is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is the illness caused by this new form of coronavirus, which is called SARS-CoV-2, which stands for “Severe Acute Respiratory Virus-CoronaVirus-2”.

How Can You Relate COVID-19 With Your Dogs?

COVID-19 is not a single virus it has a large family and yes! this virus can affect even animals like cats, dogs, and other wildlife. The most dangerous fact about this virus is that it continuously changes its shapes and forms. Sometimes they share genetic material with other strains of coronaviruses. This genetic mixing can create new strains of coronaviruses that behave differently from previously known strains.  

Scientific research shows that SARS-COV-2 is mainly originated from bats. And this virus has the ability to affect humans as well. once this virus spreads and turns into a new species and if these species enter into the human body it stays there.

That is, it becomes a virus that infects humans rather than other animals. While back-and-forth transmission between humans and other animals is possible, our best scientific understanding at this time suggests this is unlikely.

Could infected dogs spread SARS-CoV-2 back to humans?

Currently, there is no evidence that SARS-CoV-2 is being transmitted between people and pets, or from pet-to-pet. There are no reports of a person becoming ill with COVID-19 from a dog (or cat).

However, dealing with emerging viruses is always difficult because we cannot predict all of their behaviors accurately. We need to be realistic about what we do and don’t yet know. 

Because the virus was detected in the mouth of the dog in Hong Kong, we have to consider that this kind of transmission could occur. It is possible that a sick person could sneeze or cough and that a dog could lick up these droplets and then lick someone else. In this way, the dog would not have to be sick, but it would act as a vector, carrying the virus from a sick person to a good person. As far as we can tell, this is a very, very, unlikely occurrence, but it could happen.

In today’s discussion, we have tried to give some information about COVID-19 and also tell you how it can affect the person. We also try to answer the queries of dog owners regarding the COVID-19. We also cover the topic if you become infected from COVID-19 then how should you treat your dog and how distance you should maintain with your dog.
