British scientists have identified an inflammatory heart disease called myocarditis in some domestic cats and dogs. He was discovered after pets got sick with COVID-19, informs NBC News.
It is noted that the animals were depressed, lethargic, and also lacked appetite.
“They either had difficulty breathing due to fluid buildup in their lungs and heart disease, or they passed out due to an abnormal heart rhythm,” said Luca Ferasin, a veterinary cardiologist at Ralph Veterinary Reference Center in Buckinghamshire.
According to him, about 12.5 percent of pets who have undergone the infection are diagnosed with myocarditis.
Earlier, the veterinarian of the SberZdorovye online medical service told how to determine the presence of coronavirus in a pet. According to the specialist, cough and nasal discharge can become symptoms of the disease.
