Now that things are starting to open up, it's more important than ever to stay safe and healthy. With so many people being couped up, everyone wants fresh air and exercise. As much as I love interacting with other pet owners, you and your pet still want to keep following the 6 foot rules.
I know what you're thinking: pets can't get COVID-19 so what's the big deal? Well, when your pet interacts with other humans, their germs will end up on your pet. Likewise, other pets will have their owner's germs on them, which will pass to your pet and then to you.
In other words, pets can carry germs from humans. Pets can transfer human germs to other pets.
This quarantine has been hard one everyone, but now is not the time to let up. Take your pets out early, or late, to avoid others. Stay safe out there!
