Pets, especially cats and dogs, have been reported to test positive for COVID-19. Most cases have been mild, with animals recovering without severe illness.
Mink, which are raised for their fur, have been highly susceptible to COVID-19. In some cases, the virus has spread rapidly among mink populations on fur farms.
Several big cats, including lions and tigers at zoos, have tested positive for COVID-19. They likely contracted the virus from human caregivers.
Some gorillas at a zoo in California were the first non-human primates to test positive for COVID-19. They showed mild symptoms and recovered.
Ferrets, which are sometimes kept as pets, have also been found to be susceptible to the virus, and cases have been reported in some countries.
