Among the frontiers for research into COVID-19 is how the virus behaves when presented the opportunity to move between species. One thing is certain so far — dogs and cats definitely can contract the disease, a development that runs counter to experts’ initial hypotheses.

As of Monday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture held that there were 24 confirmed COVD-19 cases in dogs and cats. According to Terry Hensley, assistant laboratory director at the Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory, thus far there have been no confirmed cases among livestock and no evidence of infection among livestock.
