    Yes. Also cats can get it and also mink. A mink farm in MI had to close down because of Covid-19 infection. It was speculated that the mink contracted the virus from one of their caretakers.

    They better require dogs to wear masks in stores. Mine never covers its mouth when it sneezes

    The most important thing I got from this article was:
    The most effective hygiene measure in helping to reduce the prevalence of the disease was to disinfect products purchased from the market once back home (which reduced the risk by 94%).

    This is the opposite of what I heard in the past, I still have been disinfecting products.

    Are the cat masks a joke. Honestly, that's a joke, correct?

    • I don't disinfect anything.
    • I wash and sanitize my hands after visiting stores and such.
    • I wear a mask because I want to be polite to people around me. I definitely don't wear it because I'm foolish enough to think it is protecting me in any way.
    • I eat well and exercise. I make sure I get a full nights sleep.
    • I bought an oxygen meter awhile back to monitor my o2 levels for the possibility that I get infected.
    Other than that I don't think much about the virus. I definitely don't worry about my dogs.

    8 months of this fiasco and that’s certainly the first time I’ve heard that advice at that level.
