There are, however, coronavirus strains that can attack and with symptoms such as mild diarrhoea.

In the case of COVID-19, WSAVA and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advised infected people from physically interacting with their pets.

The CDC said: “You should restrict contact with pets and other animals while you are sick with COVID-19, just like you would around other people.

“Although there have not been reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19, it is still recommended that people sick with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus.

“When possible, have another member of your household care for your animals while you are sick.
