CDC recommends social distancing for pets after 2 cats test positive for COVID-19

Two cats in New York have tested positive for COVID-19, according to the US Department of Agriculture, a development that's leading to a host of new questions and new guidelines for pets.
"When we see those signs, we don't automatically assume it's COVID-19 because there are a lot of other viruses cats can get that show signs of upper respiratory disease. So the AVMA is recommending that if the cat is showing signs and the owner was exposed then we would test the cat for COVID-19," says Dr. Dennis Dougherty, Suffolk SPCA veterinarian.
