Good To Know

Although both dogs and cats can become infected with SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), cats may catch COVID more readily than dogs, according to a study published in June in the scientific journal Virulence.

University of Minnesota researcher Dr. Hinh Ly teamed up with his wife Yuying Liang, also with UM, to test cats and dogs for COVID antibodies, which can show whether the animals had been previously infected.

In the end, they found COVID antibodies in 8% of the cats they tested. Less than 1% of dogs tested had anti-bodies to coronavirus.
