You may hear in the news about the passing of the 17-year-old Pomeranian dog that was released from quarantine in Hong Kong. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER OF DOGS TRANSMITTING COVID-19 TO PEOPLE. This dog was tested negative twice, never showed signs of illness and no antibodies in the blood. It just happened to have sniffed some from the owner's virus into the nasal passages. It is not uncommon for a dog to die suddenly at that age. Those are fairly advanced geriatric years. Unfortunately, the owner declined necropsy and now the cause of death will be speculated. Given no other dogs in the same situation have exhibited signs of Coronavirus, please help curb any misinformation that may arise
