We’re all learning how to sit and stay


Pet parents are doing their best to keep pets safe during quarantine. Here’s what you need to know to protect your furry friends.

In an emergency situation, being prepared can make all the difference

Chances are you have a plan in place for your children and older relatives—but what about your pets?

First aid supplies

Set up a first aid checklist.

Go bag for emergencies

Have a go-bag ready with pet food, medicine and a few of your pet’s favorite things.

Mobile phone

Ask a friend about caring for your pet if you require medical care.

Stay healthy around animals

At this time, there is no evidence that pets can spread the virus that causes COVID-19 to people. However, the CDC recommends the following steps to ensure the safety and well-being of pets and their owners.

  • Wash your hands after handling animals, their food, waste or supplies.
  • Practice good pet hygiene and clean up after pets properly.
  • Talk to your veterinarian if you have questions about your pet’s health.
