Covid: First UK case in pet dog confirmed by top vet

12 Nov 2021 1:20 PM | Anonymous

A dog has tested positive for Covid - the first documented case of its kind in the UK - officials have confirmed.

They believe the pet, who is recovering at home, caught it from its owner.

The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) says cases like this are extremely rare and there is no strong evidence to suggest that dogs, cats or other pets are passing on the virus to humans.
