WHAT precautions are you taking concerning covid-19?
Our top priority is and always has been the health, safety, and well-being of you and your fur babies. Our ability to protect you and yours starts first and foremost within our own business. We take this responsibility very seriously, always.
With that in mind, here are a few more things we want you to know:
· We are following Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Industry Guidance, General Checklist for Limited Services.
· After each visit is completed, we are using disinfecting wipes to sanitize our leashes and cell phones.
· We are also using disinfecting spray to sterilize the inside of our van, including the kennels that your fur babies are being transported in during their Pet-Taxi rides.
Barking Meow Pet Solutions would like to share some information from the CDC’s website to help clear up any concerns you might have after reading or seeing the news regarding the transfer of the COVID-19 from humans to pets:
While this virus seems to have emerged from an animal source, it is now spreading from person-to-person in China. There is no reason to think that any animals including pets in the United States might be a source of infection with this new coronavirus. To date, CDC has not received any reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19. At this time, there is no evidence that companion animals including pets can spread COVID-19. However, since animals can spread other diseases to people, it’s always a good idea to wash your hands after being around animals. For more information on the many benefits of pet ownership, as well as staying safe and healthy around animals including pets, livestock, and wildlife, visit CDC’s Healthy Pets, Healthy People website.
WHAT IS A NAPPS CERTIFICATION?
The National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) Certification Course is a broad-range and in-depth self-paced course covering all topics relevant to pet sitting, including pet care, health, nutrition and behavior for a variety of animals. It also includes business development and management, pet safety and a complete pet first aid course. The NAPPS Certification acknowledges that the pet sitter is a serious professional who has obtained a high level of expertise through his/her study. NAPPS Certification is good for two (2) years. In order to maintain our NAPPS Certification status, we must re-certify by presenting evidence of a total of 30 Continued Educational Units (CEUs).
