Coronavirus Testing Dog and Cat

Department of health teams are visiting homes  to test dogs and cats for coronavirus
 
Texas scientists have reported finding two cats  infected with coronavirus.

The cats were swabbed as part of a study being conducted at Texas A&M University to understand how pets living in “high-risk” households may be impacted by COVID-19.

The cats were in separate homes in Brazos County — and asymptomatic.

One cat began sneezing after a visit at his house from researchers.

Dr. Sarah Hamer, an epidemiologist, told KBTX-TV Friday that her team was testing dogs and cats who live in homes where the coronavirus has infected at least one person.

 

 A team of researchers at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Science has confirmed the first cats in Brazos County have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. They also believe these would be the first two cats that have tested positive for the virus in Texas.

 

Dr. Sarah A. Hamer, a researcher on the project, told KBTX the two cats that tested positive were living in separate households.

 

“In both cases, these cats were asymptomatic,” said Dr. Hamer. “I can say that after we sampled, the owner let us know that one of the cats was sneezing for a few days after we left the house.”

veterinary researchers started working with Brazos County Health Department to start conducting a study on cats and dogs that live in homes with confirmed human COVID-19 cases to learn more about animal exposure and transmission pathways.

 

She said now that they know there’s a chance for pets to become infected in COVID-positive homes, pet owners should be cautious if they become infected, but that they should not worry.

 

“Under no circumstances would an owner of an infected pet be asked to surrender their pets, and there’s no need to worry about a diagnosis.

 

When we do find out that a pet is positive, we would work with those owners to take preventative measures to make sure that the coronavirus infected dog and cat  is staying home, it’s not interacting with other dogs or cats or people and is isolating in the same way that positive people would isolate,” said Dr. Hamer.

 

Dr. Hamer told KBTX, at this point in their study, they have found that it is not very common for pets to become infected.

“Since late June, we’ve sampled over 50 houses and each house might have one or more pets.

 

So it certainly isn’t common to find an infection in the pets, but we’re certainly trying to figure out under what circumstances pets are becoming infected,” said Dr. Hamer.

 

 

Since this study is relatively new, Dr. Hamer said there is still a lot to learn.

“Our study is very much still moving forward. We’re actively enrolling new pets every day, making site visits, so nearly every day of the week.

There’s a lot more that we can learn. For example, how long do infected pets stay infected?

 

Do they recover?

How commonly do infected pets have clinical signs?

These are all things that will take larger sample sizes and more studying to be able to learn more about,” she said.

 

 

“There’s no indication right now that humans can get the virus from their infected pet. Our study certainly wasn’t designed to be able to detect that.

 

We weren’t looking at the directionality; can the pets give it to the humans?

Can humans give Coronavirus to  pets?

But one important thing to emphasize is that we were sampling exclusively houses where at least one person has been diagnosed as positive,” said Dr. Hamer.

 

She explained to us how animals get involved in the study through the Brazos County Health Department.

 

“When newly diagnosed cases get a call from the case investigator, they’re asked a series of questions and one of them is, ‘Do you own pets?’ and that’s the point where if the answer is ‘yes,’ then they are given just a small bit of information about our research study and they can choose to opt-in at that point.

Then our research team can follow up and find more details about what it actually looks like; what the site visit will involve, what we want to get from each pet, and they can choose whether they want to be involved or not,” said Dr. Hamer.

 

Dr. Hamer said after a pet tests positive, they would revisit the home a few times to continue collecting data.

 

“We’ve lined up resamplings for we get to go back to the household to sample that animal again and we hope to do so again in a couple of weeks after that.

So we’re hoping to get some data to learn about the longevity of the infection and wind antibodies become detectable,” said Dr. Hamer.

 

She said they have revisited the two cats that have tested positive and that they are both doing great.

For the future of the study, Dr. Hamer said they’re going to focus on sampling cats and dogs, but that they plan on branching out soon.

 

 

“Any mammal that’s in a domestic environment. Speaking nationally and globally, both dogs and cats have been shown to be infected or to have been exposed to the virus, and our study, so far, we’ve confirmed infection in these two cats.”

In July, a pet dog in Fort Worth, Texas, tested positive for the virus. Its owners had the virus.

 

“Based on current knowledge, there is no evidence that pets play a significant role in spreading SARS-CoV-2 to people,” State Veterinarian Dr. Andy Schwartz said at the time.

 

In April, federal officials confirmed two cats who lived in different parts of New York had tested positive for the virus. They had mild respiratory illnesses.

  1. john emailed us he told us his cat and dog were both tested by department of health teams at his house.

    the team wore gloves and masks and full PPE suits while at his home.

    are you ready to get your pet tested for Coronavirus ?

    thank you John for your story.

  2. Honestly, the stupidity of our population is astounding! I can make millions selling bridges to no where and I’ll have repeat customers! That’s what fluoride, aluminum and mercury coupled with constant propaganda do to a population of a once proud nation.

    1. At the rate in which censorship has taken over the net, especially in comment sections featuring such fear porn, I’m astonished that your comment was even published. Needless to say I’m in agreement 110%
      God bless.

  3. Assuming this story is true…

    What utterly disgusting ^$£$&s these scum are. This is a precursor to doing it to us.
    And all based on a proven fake test

    Dr. Sarah Hamer, an epidemiologist and co… No. Mengele’s protege’s and animal abusers. Truly disgusting piece’s of trash.

    • All the COVID-19 infection rates and number of cases by locale and nation are fabricated • All mortality rates by city, state and nation are falsified, most COVID-19 classified deaths are other causes of death • All coronavirus hospital admissions are either confusingly misrepresented, deliberately inflated or grossly exaggerated • All COVID-19 statistics officially issued by virtually every government within the world community of nations are either highly inaccurate, purposefully distorted or patently false • Geriatric genocide is the primary cause of death especially in the United States, Italy, Great Britain, Spain, France and Germany

    They have never isolated & sequenced CoV-19 and done Koch Postulate testing to prove it causes a disease and so since they have never isolated it and looked at it they cannot create a test or a vaccine for it–or even diagnose it.

    CDC journal entry:
    “A549 cells [human cells] were incompatible with SARS CoV-2 infection’.”

    1. Thank you good sir for still being able to think, I was nodding in agreement the whole way through your comment.
      -We now live in a world where that old fashioned notion (thinking) has generally been subbed out to twitter. Those of us who remain able to think abstractly, retain information longer than a text or tweet, further back than last Monday , and have the wherewithal to stand upon our convictions, retaining the ability to reason rather than being swallowed up by the virtue-signaling communitarian group think of the “woke mob” are few & far between. God forbid our rights should still be recognized when someone else’s fear begins or if someone is offended. This is the most frustrating mind control experiment ever and most are failing the test. The zombie apocalypse, steered by ‘philanthropic psychopaths’ and borderless NGOs, is upon us, God help us all .

  4. The group added that there had been no reports of pets or livestock developing the disease in the United States. In other countries, four cats and dogs have tested positive for COVID-19, the association said.

  5. You cannot go to Church. But they CAN COME INTO OUR HOMES WITH A CLIPBOARD AND ASSAULT US AND OUR PETS! Don’t be fooled, they will take them. Or they will threaten to if you do not acquiesce. THIS IS AN AFFRONT TO ALL THAT OUR FOREFATHERS FOUGHT AND DIED FOR… (IN MY FAMILY, Served in the military and in the Government, IN EVERY SINGLE WAR AND STOOD FOR LIBERTY AND JUSTICE IN GOVERNMENT POSITIONS TOO!) This makes me sick.
    Just exactly how stupid do you think we are? Or , IS IT THAT THEY ARE THAT DUMBED DOWN THAT THEY ACTUALLY BELIEVE ALL THE LIES! PACK OF LIES! TONS OF THEM! NO ONE HAD BETTER TRY TO TOUCH MY CHILDREN. AND IF YOU THINK I AM TALKING ABOUT JUST THE PETS, LET ME TELL YOU THAT I STUDY. I study at the Libr. of Congress. and I have seen the LEGISLATION. MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT FOLKS. THESE PEOPLE ARE WAY WAYYYYYY OUT ON A LIMB HERE OUT OF CONTROL.

  6. So all this started when the President of Zimbabwe tested a pawpaw, papaya and a goat where all tested positive. Now the RetardNation greedily follows their Neon God to their consensual demise, for nothing. That’s the joke.
    Kerry Mullis, the inventor of the PCR test and won a Nobel Prize for it, said the PCR reagent process is under no circumstances to be used for verifying infections. It all sounds fancy though. |
    Fauci himself stated in a CDC white paper that the PCR test will show positive for most anything where the repeat cycles are run beyond 20-25, depending. Most all ‘covid’ tests are run at 40 cycles.
    More people are being checked into hospitals for bacterial pneumonia from wearing dirty masks all day, but being counted as this cold virus with HIV bioweaponed onto it. Masks are not meant to be worn no more that 20 min., 30 max.
    This mRNA vaccine re-writes your DNA so clinically speaking YOU become property of some Gates connected corporation. As evidenced, it messes people up, has HIV in it, and the people that are targeted the most (seniors and blacks) by these eugenicistnazi’s are put first in line to roll up their sleeve.
    All this was planned years ago by the Rockefeller Foundation and their Operation Lockstep, of which they recently changed the contents of the outlined report for obvious reasons. I have a copy of the original.
    THERE’s YOUR SCIENCE.
