Dear pet owners,

We know there have been rising concerns regarding pet safety and COVID-19. There is absolutely no need to worry, Always Helpful has you covered
. To put your mind at ease, we’ve debunked some common myths, provided some useful resources, and outlined our approach to handling the current situation.

What does COVID-19 mean for my pet?

Your pet is not at risk of carrying COVID-19. The CDC has reported no COVID-19 cases in pets in the USA.
Do not abandon your pets out of fear of contracting COVID-19 from them or infecting them with COVID-19. If you contract COVID-19, you should restrict contact with your pets. Contact us if you need further advice.
Practice basic hygiene. Wash your hands with soap and water after handling or walking your pets. If you’d like to take extra precautions, you can wipe down your pet with disposable baby/dog wipes after their walks.
