Drew Lynch on COVID-19 and His Service Dog


Comedian Drew Lynch has a service dog named Stella. How can you walk a bridge between telling the truth and being funny? Lynch successfully does just that. (Note, while I think he’s funny and the over-riding message is on target, not all Lynch says is accurate. For example, COVID-19 is not a strain of flu. No matter, I am posting because his passion for dogs is evident and we do need to laugh now, or at least smile).

For real info on the potential of transmission of COVID-19 to pets, or whether or not pets can transmit COVID-19 to us, here’s guidance from the American Veterinary Medical Association (who collaborates with the CDC). And here’s an interview on WGN Radio Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show with Dr. Gail Golab, Chief Science Officer at the AVMA.
