ESPECIALLY NO detergent, bleach, or hydroalcoholic gel to disinfect your dog! The Order of Veterinarians is warning pet owners of the dangers of using these products on their pets.

For several days, we have unfortunately seen passing, on social networks, images of dogs whose paws have been burned by hydroalcoholic gel or even bleach. STOP these are toxic products !!! If you want to clean your animals after returning from a walk, use soap and water. This is effective enough!

Since the dog and human Coronavirus are not the same, there is no need to protect your dog.

If you are unable to take care of your dog due to your medical condition which requires hospitalization, for example, do not leave him alone at your home.

Call on your loved ones, your neighbors, or your family or, as a last resort, local associations to watch over your dog for a few days. These associations already manage all abandoned dogs throughout the year, and it appears that there is currently a strong increase in abandonment so they may not be able to help you but they will certainly be able to help you. good advice.

In this time of crisis, we absolutely must show solidarity! Borrow Mon Toutou et Bibou, two dog-sitting services, get involved in their own way by entering into the chain of solidarity to protect our animals.
