Can Covid live on my dog’s feet?

You’ve probably seen the articles floating around about Covid 19 living on the shoes of humans for up to 5 days.  We have been asked the question “can it live on my dog’s feet” and what are safe ways to properly disinfect them after walks, etc.

You’ll be glad to know that the virus shouldn’t survive on sidewalks or fur and pads for that matter. Just a normal bath is more than enough!

We did recently see an article where someone in Dallas soaked their dog’s feet in bleach to clean them off after a walk, which in turn burned the pads of the feet badly.  Do not do this =)
