On this page you will find the current UK status for COVID-19 & Pets, Government advice for pet owners, and general advice and resources for pet owners including advice on behavioural changes in your pet, and looking after your puppy/kitten. You will also find advice for breeders and animal related businesses.

Some government guidance and information may vary in different parts of the UK therefore please check country advice for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and also, for any local variations within each country. Our Covid-19 homepage has further information on transitioning plans intended to ease any lockdown restrictions specific to each country that may be in place.

Please note that Government advice can change at short notice therefore, it is advisable that you regularly check UK Government websites for the latest updates.
