Italian researchers tested 540 dogs and 277 cats in households, where people had tested positive for COVID-19, or in areas severely affected by the pandemic, such as Lombardy. The scientists detected antibodies against the virus in 3.4% of dogs and 3.9% of cats.
Studies on a relatively large number of animals confirm the premise that pets can be infected by humans with SARS-CoV-2, but vice versa is very unlikely. Tests taken from the mouth, nose and throat tested negative in all animals. Cats and dogs were tested between March and May 2020.
Pets do not spread the virus
Researchers say this extensive study is very useful. According to Thomas Mettenleiter, president of the Friedrich-Loeffler Institute (FLI) in Greifswald, the results are not surprising: "Confirm what we already know." However, a study with such a large number of pets is welcome. "Samples are not easy to obtain."

Healthy people should not restrict contact with pets
The study therefore confirms the FLI researchers' assumption that dogs or cats have not yet played a role in the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The decisive factor is the transmission from person to person. "We start from the premise that the virus is usually transmitted from humans to animals," says Mettenleiter. Therefore, FLI considers that healthy people have no reason to restrict contact with their pets. On the other hand, patients infected with coronavirus should avoid contact with pets in order not to infect them.
Animals do not die from coronavirus infection
So far, Mettenleiter claims, there is no evidence that the animals could die from coronavirus infection. Even if pets contract the virus, it does not automatically mean that it can spread to animals and then spread through nasal, coughing or fecal secretions.
In addition, researchers at FLI have found that there is currently no evidence to confirm that pigs, chickens and other farm animals can be infected with SARS-CoV-2. The institute is currently conducting experiments with several species of animals. According to the initial results, ferrets and fruit bats are sensitive to the virus, but chickens and pigs are not. Cattle studies are still in their infancy.
Outbreaks of coronavirus on farms
Scientists are also investigating how the virus reached mink farms in the Netherlands and Spain, infecting almost all the animals kept there - that is, whether farm staff infected the animals or vice versa.
Precautionary measure in mink farms in the Netherlands: over one million animals have been killed
The outbreak of coronavirus on mink farms near the Spanish town of La Puebla de Valverde, a village of 500 inhabitants in northwestern Aragon, was discovered after 14 employees tested positive for the new coronavirus in late May. Two other employees became infected after the farm was closed.
Outbreaks in the Netherlands began in April. During the examinations, veterinary professor Wim van der Poel, from the University of Wagingen, found that the strain of virus found in mink is similar to that circulating in humans.
"I suspected that it might be transferred to humans (from animals)," van der Poel said. Which happened to at least two farm employees.
Authorities killed more than a million miners
As a precautionary measure following the outbreak, the Spanish authorities ordered the killing of more than 92,000 minks on the farm. 90 percent were infected with the new coronavirus.
In the Netherlands alone, more than 1.1 million minks, which have spread the virus, have been killed, the Dutch Food and Consumer Safety Agency said.
There are about 160 mink farms in the Netherlands. The country is the fourth largest fur producer in the world, after Denmark, China and Poland. Spain has 38 mink farms, most of them in Galicia.

Losing weight is hard, and this applies to both people and animals. It is much easier to gain weight by uncontrollably eating high-calorie snacks and brushing off the thought that someday you will have to lose all the pounds you have eaten. And if a person himself can decide that he needs to lose weight, pets cannot do that. That is why it is so important to be attentive to your pet, and when he reminds you more of a barrel with legs than a dog or a cat, it urgently needs to be put on a diet and put in order, as the people from our article did.

The Shawn Davis family lives in a crowded area in the state of Illinois, but due to the coronavirus, they were forced to stay at home like all the neighbors. A family of foxes became interested in the empty backyard of the Americans and for several months rested under the windows of Sean's house.
While people were quarantined in their homes, animals began to return the suddenly vacated territories to their legal possessions. This happened with the garden of the American Sean Davis - the backyard of his family was first chosen by a couple of foxes, and then they brought their kids there. The foxes in the courtyard liked it so much that for several months the animal family spent right under the windows of Sean and his relatives, for whom the life of the foxes turned into a real series.
The American noticed that the foxes liked his yard and installed a camera that filmed their life. American Sean Davis was very surprised when in May he saw a red couple in the courtyard of two foxes. The Sean family lives in a crowded area in the state of Illinois, where besides them there are other houses, so this place can hardly be called quiet. However, the presence of people did not scare the animals at all, but rather the opposite, because over time, the foxes in the courtyard of Sean became more and more.
Over time, seven animals at once occupied the courtyard of the Sean family - mother, father, and 5 deprive them. Animals began to use secluded territory as their playground and shelter. In the afternoon, they curled up and slept under trees, games in the morning and evening. And sometimes, due to inattention of people, the yard turned into a dining room. Since the human family almost never left the house due to quarantine, the life of foxes became a real series for them.
