COVID-19 pandemic: What to do with pets during self-isolation
Animal welfare groups advise owners to identify friends to care for pets if someone in their household falls ill
March 12, 2020
Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), and animal health groups are reminding owners to include pets in their preparedness plans.

In addition to guidelines typically suggested for preparing for a natural disaster threat, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the Association for Animal Welfare Advancement (AAWA), and Orange County Animal Services have published recommendations specific to COVID-19 those with animals should consider.

Most notably, the groups advise owners to identify family members or friends to care for pets if someone in their household becomes ill and/or is hospitalized.

While WHO and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have both stated there is “no evidence at this time” pets could be a source of infection for other animals or humans, individuals who are sick with COVID-19 should avoid contact with animals, just as they should with people, until more information is known about the virus.

“When possible, have another member of your household care for your animals while you are sick,” CDC says. “If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wash your hands before and after you interact with pets and wear a face mask.”

In preparation for disasters, owners should:

• find a trusted family member or friend to care for pets if someone in your household becomes ill and/or is hospitalized;
• research potential boarding facilities in the area;
• keep crates, food, and extra supplies for your pet on hand in case moving them becomes necessary or if the disease spreads in the community and it becomes necessary to reduce social exposure;
• ensure all animal vaccinations are up to date; and
• tag, collar, and microchip all pets.

The holiday season is upon us, and many pet parents plan to include their furry companions in the festivities. As you gear up for the holidays, it is important to try to keep your pet's eating and exercise habits as close to their normal routine as possible. Also, please be sure to steer pets clear of the following unhealthy treats, toxic plants and dangerous decorations.

Be Careful with Seasonal Plants and Decorations

Oh, Christmas Tree: Securely anchor your Christmas tree so it doesn't tip and fall, causing possible injury to your pet. This will also prevent the tree water—which may contain fertilizers that can cause stomach upset—from spilling. Stagnant tree water is a breeding ground for bacteria, and your pet could end up with nausea or diarrhea should he imbibe.

Avoid Mistletoe & Holly: Holly, when ingested, can cause pets to suffer nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Mistletoe can cause gastrointestinal upset and cardiovascular problems. And many varieties of lilies can cause kidney failure in cats if ingested. Opt for just-as-jolly artificial plants made from silk or plastic, or choose a pet-safe bouquet.

Tinsel-less Town: Kitties love this sparkly, light-catching "toy" that's easy to bat around and carry in their mouths. But a nibble can lead to a swallow, which can lead to an obstructed digestive tract, severe vomiting, dehydration and possible surgery. It's best to brighten your boughs with something other than tinsel.

That Holiday Glow: Don't leave lighted candles unattended. Pets may burn themselves or cause a fire if they knock candles over. Be sure to use appropriate candle holders, placed on a stable surface. And if you leave the room, put the candle out!

Wired Up: Keep wires, batteries and glass or plastic ornaments out of paws' reach. A wire can deliver a potentially lethal electrical shock and a punctured battery can cause burns to the mouth and esophagus, while shards of breakable ornaments can damage your pet's mouth and digestive tract.

Avoid Holiday Food Dangers

Skip the Sweets: By now you know not to feed your pets chocolate and anything sweetened with xylitol, but do you know the lengths to which an enterprising pet will go to chomp on something yummy? Make sure to keep your pets away from the table and unattended plates of food, and be sure to secure the lids on garbage cans.

Leave the Leftovers: Fatty, spicy and no-no human foods, as well as bones, should not be fed to your furry friends. Pets can join the festivities in other fun ways that won't lead to costly medical bills.

Careful with Cocktails: If your celebration includes adult holiday beverages, be sure to place your unattended alcoholic drinks where pets cannot get to them. If ingested, your pet could become weak, ill and may even go into a coma, possibly resulting in death from respiratory failure.

Selecting Special Treats: Looking to stuff your pet's stockings? Stick with chew toys that are basically indestructible, Kongs that can be stuffed with healthy foods or chew treats that are designed to be safely digestible. Long, stringy things are a feline's dream, but the most risky toys for cats involve ribbon, yarn and loose little parts that can get stuck in the intestines, often necessitating surgery. Surprise kitty with a new ball that's too big to swallow, a stuffed catnip toy or the interactive cat dancer.

Plan a Pet-Safe Holiday Gathering

House Rules: If your animal-loving guests would like to give your pets a little extra attention and exercise while you're busy tending to the party, ask them to feel free to start a nice play or petting session.

Put the Meds Away: Make sure all of your medications are locked behind secure doors, and be sure to tell your guests to keep their meds zipped up and packed away, too.

A Room of Their Own: Give your pet his own quiet space to retreat to—complete with fresh water and a place to snuggle. Shy pups and cats might want to hide out under a piece of furniture, in their carrying case or in a separate room away from the hubbub.

New Year's Noise: As you count down to the new year, please keep in mind that strings of thrown confetti can get lodged in a cat's intestines, if ingested, perhaps necessitating surgery. Noisy poppers can terrify pets and cause possible damage to sensitive ears. And remember that many pets are also scared of fireworks, so be sure to secure them in a safe, escape-proof area as midnight approaches.

Tune in at 8:10 Thursday morning, October 3rd, to the 92.5 WINC FM Wake Up Show to meet puppies "Gus" and "Stewart". Gus and Stewart are 5-month-old, neutered male Chihuahua mix puppies. They came in with their two sisters and Mom who have already been adopted.These little guys were slightly behind on their growth spurts but now are ready to find their permanent, loving homes.They play together and also cuddle up with each other during nap time so we would love to see them go to the same adopted home.

Rabies Control – Environmental Epidemiology

Celebrate Rabies Awareness Week by protecting the ones you love! Have your veterinarian vaccinate your dogs, cats, ferrets, and selected livestock. Keep the vaccinations up-to-date. If your pet is attacked or bitten by a wild animal, report it to the local health or animal control authorities. Be sure your vaccinated dog, cat, or ferret receives a booster vaccination. #WorldRabiesDay
Celebrate Rabies Awareness Week by making sure your pets are up to date on their rabies vaccination! Find a Rabies Clinic in your area: http://www.vdh.virginia.gov/environmental-epidemiology/rabies-control/rabies-clinics-by-health-district/ #WorldRabiesDay
Most people know when they have been bitten by a bat, but there are situations when you should contact a health care provider even if you can’t see a bite. For example, if you wake up to find a bat in your room, see a bat in the room of an unattended child, or see a bat near a mentally impaired or intoxicated person, do not destroy or discard the bat. Call your local health department for advice. #WorldRabiesDay http://www.vdh.virginia.gov/environmental-epidemiology/rabies-control/
There are many steps you and your family can take to protect yourselves and your pets from rabies: appreciate wildlife from a distance, don’t adopt wild animals as pets, keep your pets on your own property, and keep garbage and pet food secure inside. For more information on rabies, visit the VDH website #WorldRabiesDay http://www.vdh.virginia.gov/environmental-epidemiology/rabies-control/
Virginia is home to many types of wildlife, but it’s important to appreciate them at a distance to protect yourself and your pets from rabies. Do not keep wild animals as pets. Enjoy all wild animals from a distance, even if they seem friendly. A rabid animal sometimes acts tame. If you see an animal acting strangely, report it to your local animal control department and do not approach it. #WorldRabiesDay

We’re in need of new Kuranda beds and we’re reaching out to you to ask for help.

We’ve chosen Kuranda beds because they provide a comfortable resting place, which is critical to reducing an animal’s stress level. When an animal is well rested, their personality shines through, making them more likely to connect with a potential adopter. Plus- Kuranda beds are easy to sanitize, chew proof, and hold up to 250 lbs. They're easy to order-simply order the bed via this link: http://ow.ly/MSdt50vyo48 and Kuranda will ship the bed directly to us.

Thank you so much for your help in making sure all of our animals are comfortable and well rested during their stay with us.

I am grateful for HERITAGE ANIMAL HOSPITAL in sterling, va. they gave my PITA-cat the best 'after-dwelling, it was top-notch in my book, i cant say thank you enough, but i could not have asked for a more thoughtful send off. Her box is just beautiful, her paw-print is purrfect and i will cherish her memory for years to come.
We will be calling next week to make an appointment to bring in Bentley for is first appointment for a checkup.
Thank you so much Dr. Moghal and Rita for not only loving our pets as your family for all these years but assisting in the peaceful passing of our beloved Frans and grieving right along with us. While the passing is painful we also have complete closure that Frans had his best life up until he passed with his final moments being nothing but love and compassion. You helped us get 15 wonderful years of unconditional love with him and those memories will fill our hearts forever! You're definitely part of our family! 🥰
Just wanted to let Dr. Moghal and his staff know that my 11 year old Cammie has passed away yesterday. She had severe seizures and was allowed to cross the Rainbow Bridge. Thank you all so much for the love you showed us while we lived in Loudoun County.
I recently adopted a 5 year old border collie cross and took him to see Dr. Mogul. whom I did not know and had never met and whose office I selected because it was close to me and had god reviews. Long story short: Dr. Mogul is the kindest, gentlest, most caring vet I have ever been to in my 40 years of dog ownership, and I do not say that lightly. We spoke for 15 minutes about Blitz before he started the exam, which lasted nearly 2 hours and was the most comprehensive look at a dog I have ever experienced. Dr. Mogul's staff is outstanding, the warmest and friendliest group I have ever worked with. I am extremely satisfied and pleased, and would, without reservation, recommend his hospital and services to any pet owner that wishes to have excellent and loving care for their best friend.
Hands down the best Animal Hospital!
The doctor and the staff are amazing. When I lived in the area, I drove an hour each way just to stay in his practice.I have never had such happy or healthy pets before or since. I have nothing but the highest praise for everyone involved.
Beth and Spirit McKay. Thank you everyone for all the love and understand though the past years. With all my heart we love all of you so much. To Dr. Davidson. You are such a special Person. We thank you for your love and care for Spirit. Thank you for ending her struggle so peacefully. It has very difficult, but we had the best of 14 years together. That is special. She looked after us as much as we did her. With all our love and kindness....Beth and Tom McKay
