A serological test to detect SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in your cat.
Did you know that you can infect your cat with SARS-CoV-2 ?
Yes, it's true.
For more information please check our recent peer reviewed publication at micro-organism (MDPI).
Our main conclusions were:
- Cats that lived in COVID-19 positive households are at more risk to be infected with SARS-CoV-2 and some cats can become ill or may die.
- Cat to cat transmission of SARS-CoV-2 is also a possibility. Cat that lived in COVID-19 negative households but lived in free range and contact with other cats also tested positive.
- If you test COVID-19 positive please avoid direct contact with your cat, or ware a mask.
- Serological testing should be performed 2-3 weeks after contact with a COVID-19 positive case.
- One to 2 weeks after contact with a COVID-19 positive case a molecular RT-qPCR is recommended. Please check more info about molecular tests for cats here .
