    That virus gets close to a pet's mouth with "wet food breath", it will back up and take the first road out of town!

    I've been told, and read somewhere, that it's not true. The dog that tested positive, and gave it to it's owner was probably touched by someone who had it, therefore transmitted it - it did not "catch" the virus and transmit it.

    This is fake news..I will try to find a link, but you can search also. it's been disproven...

    my wife said so!

    peace,

    Been trying to find a direct answer to this for some time. I either get yes, no, or we don't know enough about the virus yet.

    I simply googled "can pets get covid 19" and there was a whole lisst.
    I selected the link to CDC.

    They said basically there is no evidence at this time to support household pets being able to get Covid 19

    not sure if I trust the CDC, aren't they the ones who said 6ft. was safe distance. I posted a link to a study from MIT, sneezes travel 6 meters and coughs 8 meters, maybe I got that backwards. Why can they not just give a definite yes or no instead of no evidence at this time? The cat got covid19, one dog died from it, how do they explain that?

    From the original link.
