How the Covid-19 pandemic impacts our pets?
First of all, pets are creatures of habits. Changes in their daily routines have negative impact on their emotional wellbeing. Even when those changes are for the better, they need time to get used to new situations.
Secondly, although the medical community is inconclusive when it comes to our pets role in the spread of the virus, recent studies that most pet species are in fact susceptible to this dangerous disease. Once affected they can develop symptoms which in certain cases, based on the overall health status and pre-existing health issues, may be detrimental.
