Promoting and supporting all aspects of companion animal practice


The New Zealand Veterinary Association is being guided by regular updates from the World Small Animal Veterinary Association regarding the role of companion animals in the current COVID-19 outbreak.

To date, there remains limited evidence that companion animals can be infected with COVID-19, and no evidence that pet dogs or cats present a source of infection to humans or other animals.

For the full advisory document, including advice on how to manage animals where COVID-19 infection is known to be present, please visit the WSAVA website
