Protect your pets from SARS-CoV-2 infection

Dogs are susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 by a reverse zoonosis. If you have COVID-19 you can infect your pets.

Our team confirmed this finding in a seroepidemiologic survey* of cats and dogs in Portugal and found antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 in 15/69 (21.74%) cats and 7/148 (4.73%) dogs. 

By performing this test will allow you to know if your Dog has been infected with SARS-CoV-2. This test detects IgG antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 Nucleoprotein (NP)  and Spike (S) protein. 

Please note, that IgG antibodies arise 2-3 weeks after infection and are maintained for some months. 

As in people, animals often have mild clinical signs, or are asymptomatic, but there are also reports of fatal cases.
