Thank goodness our little furry children can't get it.

I read that dogs can get it. This is on the American Kennel Club site:

 

"Li Lanjuan, an epidemiologist and representative of China’s National Health Commission cautioned pet owners in China to be vigilant about their own health and the health of their pets: “If pets go out and have contact with an infected person, they have the chance to get infected. By then, pets need to be isolated. In addition to people, we should be careful with other mammals especially pets.”

The CDC says that “while this virus seems to have emerged from an animal source, it is now spreading from person-to-person.” The CDC recommends that people traveling to China avoid animals both live and dead, “but there is no reason to think that any animals or pets in the United States might be a source of infection with this novel coronavirus.”

@alicedee   The CDC has no reported cases of pets getting the virus. They suggest washing your hands after playing with your dog or cat as you should have been doing before.

That's good to know, @Shanus .  I was reading it that you could possibly pass to dogs, but they couldn't pass to humans.  Thanks for the CDC clarification. 🌷

Amen @Shanus .  I have always washed my hands after petting my cats (and when I had a dog). 

 

It skeeves me out that most people don't! 

 

And I keep that in mind when I'm at their homes...

@Lucky charm   I've also trained all my dogs not to lick me or others on the face. We all know where that tongue has been. Lol
