PLANTITOS and plantitas are not the only ones who have been kept busy during the lockdowns that were imposed because of Covid-19.
For pet owners and lovers out there, keeping their cats, dogs, and all other furred and feathered friends free from harm while taking precautions against infection from the virus was a challenge emotionally and physically as well.
In today’s, August 26, free online forum, The Manila Times will tackle the subject on how to take better care of your beloved pets while under quarantine.
Times editor Dafort Villaseran will host “Caring for fur babies with love and passion,” which gathers some of the experts in the field of animal care: Dr. Leatrize Gonzales, veterinarian and influencer; Jelai Andres, ambassador, Pawssion Project; and Elena Bantigue, rescuing and partners committee head, Pawssion Project.
As the pandemic continues to plague the country, it seems humans are not the only ones who should stay safe. Should pets wear masks when they go out? Should you continue to care for your pets if you get Covid-19? Can pets be carriers of Covid-19? Should they be allowed to come into contact with unvaccinated friends or relatives? Should they be allowed to exercise?
These are just some of the questions that will form the topics for discussions at the forum to be livestreamed on The Manila Times Facebook Page, YouTube and Dailymotion channels starting at 3 p.m.
And there’s more. The best pet photos with the most likes and shares on Facebook will also be announced. Special packages will be given to those entries with the most FB likes. For details, check out The Manila Times Facebook page.
