Home » COVID-19 and your pet. What should you know?
Till now, most of the research and analysis being carried out in the context of the Coronavirus pandemic is focussed on the disease’s impact on humans. It seems we have not really thought about our most trustworthy companions – our German Shepherd pets that share our homes too. Over the past few months, the COVID-19 spread has sparked fears for human health and animals alike. Many rumors have spread like wildfire which has further fueled controversies whether pets can be affected by the virus or not. This is totally unclear as of now.
It has come out that certain owners living in certain epicenters of the virus across the world had even gone to the extent of deserting their pets. Recent developments have even suggested that a similar trend of homeless pets may be going up in the US as well – all due to fears that the four-legged creatures might spread the virus. On the contrary, several suggestions have also cited that pet adoptions are increasing since many people have been motivated to welcome pure-bred German Shepherd puppies into their family.
It is necessary to understand that the Coronavirus pandemic has created such global mayhem that has triggered intense emotions that have upturned the lives of animals and humans alike.
