Pet owners urged to take steps during pandemic
The Public Animal Welfare Society Ohio strongly suggests that pet owners have a plan in place in case owners test positive for the coronavirus, according to a news release. If hospitalization is needed, pet owners must have a contingency plan in place for someone to care for pets. It is far better to be proactive than reactive concerning the health and welfare of pets.
Consult family members, friends, social support groups to put a plan in place.
Purchase plenty of food for pets to have in place in case of an emergency.
Practice good hand washing, and social distancing during this time as more and more cases are reported daily, the news release states.
