Coronavirus and pets

Coronavirus measures mean there are greater restrictions on all areas of our lives, including how we care for our pets.

Our advice from Blue Cross experts, including our vets and behaviourists, will help you keep your family, pets and community safe whether you’re self-isolating or following social distancing rules. We’ve also got lots of fun ideas to keep your pets entertained.

We provide free pet advice as every pet deserves to be well looked after. We treated around 35,000 sick injured and homeless pets last year. We're so glad we've been able to help these pets who are unable to help themselves, but there are thousands of sick and lonely pets still in need, so we need to ask for a small favour.

All of our work is funded entirely through donations. People like you are essential to our work. If everyone who benefits from our articles is able to give a little back, we can reach thousands more pets. For as little as £1 you can make a difference - do you have one minute? Thank you.
