- Ensure Health and Hygiene is Maintained
Actually, not only during the coronavirus outbreak, you need to ensure the cleanliness and health of your pets, but you do it regularly according to a schedule. However, in case of an emergency such as loss of appetite or other symptoms, contact veterinarian in Singapore.
Also, make sure your pets get regular vaccinations and keep them away from fleas or fungus by giving them flea drops and keeping the house clean. If your pet shows symptoms of illness, contact your veterinarian immediately.
Meanwhile, if there are family members who are indicated by COVID-19 symptoms, they should keep contact with pets. If possible, the animal can be entrusted to the closest relatives until its health condition improves. Keep in mind that humans who are carriers or positive for COVID-19 infection can transmit the disease to pets.
Then don’t forget to regularly bathe them once every 1-2 weeks. And make sure to always wash the place to eat and drink, as well as toys and bedding.
- Hand Wash
You and your entire family should always wash your hands before and after interacting with pets. If one of the family members after going out of the house is also advised to take a shower first before interacting with their pets.
For the time being, avoid hugging pets as well and as much as possible don’t allow animals to lick areas of the body that could potentially touch hands.
Those are some steps you can take to keep your pets healthy during this coronavirus pandemic. It’s not only us as humans who have to take care of our health, but also the pets that live in the same house with us. Stay safe, fur parents!
