Additionally, please remember canines, like humans have had various coronavirus for decade, though the canine and human types are not the same, and each strain is not the same .
COVID -19 is so dangerous because it is a NEW strain and we have built up no antibodies for it.
The GOOD NEWS IS... with each person that clears the virus, currently over 80 percent of those who are exposed, antibodies are built up.
Some scientist believe a " Herd Effect" can take place, meaning the virus dies because it can not find a host among most people.
What is a Concern ?
Aunt Lyn’s believes the only concern regarding our canines and COVID- 19 is:
Infected persons petting, kissing, hugging and worse case- coughing , sneezing, getting body fluids with the virus… on your pet.
Whether family, friends, or stranger,
With ANY VIRUS the dog itself is a petri -dish of germs, not to mention the collar, leash, sweater.
Often it's our beloved pet that is helping transport bacteria and virus .
Aunt Lyn's is a dog care and wellness company, due to our K9 daycare and boarding, we know that the family dog is usually the biggest comfort to those suffering from the flu, stomach virus. or any illness. FACT
We have years of winters where dogs come to us after or during a sickness spreading throughout the entire family.
Now Fluffy is handed over to us at Daycare or Boarding… UT- OH!
And yet....I have NOT had a cold or flu in over 11 years.
OK one night, 2 years ago I felt a sore throat coming on and it lasted 24 hours.
I believe that we and the dogs, are so healthy because of a few basic simple steps we take daily.
