Can my pet catch coronavirus?
Based on current information, it’s very unlikely. Research shows that dogs and cats are not infected easily with this virus, and there’s no evidence that they can transmit the virus to people or other pets at home.
How can I protect my pet from getting coronavirus?
At this time, research suggests it’s very unlikely your pet can contract COVID-19 and there's no evidence they can infect others at home. We recommend:
- thorough handwashing 
- keeping pets away from anyone infected 
- confining pets if they've been around someone infected
Can my pet carry the virus in its fur?
Your pets’ fur is like any other surface so it’s important you practice thorough handwashing after handling them, keep pets away from anyone infected and confine pets if they've been around someone infected.
Do you recommend my pet wear a mask?
There’s no scientific evidence that masks protect pets from infectious diseases or air pollutants. Pets’ faces are more varied than human faces so a mask is unlikely to fit properly. Also, we can't explain to pets why we are putting something on their face so they may get scared.
Should I still take my pet for a walk?
Yes — pets love exercise! Take your dog for a walk on a leash, preferably with limited-to-no interaction with other people or pets.
Can I still take care of my pet if I am sick?
When possible, have another member of your household care for your animals if you are sick. If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wash your hands before and after you interact with pets.
Is there a risk my pet could get coronavirus from your food?
Please be assured that the current coronavirus outbreak does not pose a food safety risk to humans or pets, either through packaging or the food itself. The processing conditions involved in the production of our food products are sufficient to destroy the virus.
Are the locations where you source your ingredients from safe for pets to eat?
We source ingredients from many regions around the world, and only use high-quality ingredients that meet local laws as well as our own high standards. The processing conditions involved in the production of our food products are sufficient to destroy the virus.
I can’t find my usual food in any shops, what’s happened?
Pet food is essential, and we are continuing to make the foods your pet needs and loves. There is no shortage of our pet food and we want to ask all pet owners to please be considerate and only purchase the food your pet needs.
I can't get my usual food. Is it okay for me to switch diet?
Yes! Ideally choose a similar food (dry or wet) and slowly incorporate small amounts of the new food over the course of one week to ensure that a sudden change does not cause a dietary upset. 
I’m worried about my personal situation and not being able to get enough food for my pet – what do you suggest?
We know this can be a worrying time and you always want what’s best for your pet. We are working closely with all our pet shelter partners and would encourage you to speak to them for any support in your local area.

How do I store CESAR®️ products?
  • CESAR® Wet: Prior to opening, we recommend storing cans and plastic trays in a cool, dry environment. Once opened, the unused portion should be refrigerated and fed to your pet within three days.
  • CESAR® Dry: Store the bags of food in a cool, dry environment. Once opened, tightly roll down the top of the bag after each feeding. If the food is kept in a storage container, we recommend putting the entire bag in the container. When stored properly, the food will remain fresh until the Best By (BB) date printed on the package.
How do I read batch information and best before information?
  • CESAR® Wet: You will find the Best By (BB) date on the bottom of the cans, and side of the plastic trays. Following the letters BB, there’s a two-digit month, day and year expiration date. Example: If you see BB 02 2119, the food should be fed by Feb. 21, 2019.
  • CESAR® Dry: Towards the top of the package, you will find a Best By (BB) date. Following the words Best By, there’s a two-digit month, day and year expiration date. Example: If you see Best By 02 2119, the bag of food should be fed by Feb. 21, 2019.
My dog is picking out the orange and/or green pieces in the dry formula. Does this mean he is not getting a complete and balanced meal?
Each piece is 100% nutritionally complete and balanced for your dog. Rest assured, no matter which piece is your dog’s favorite, they are still getting a complete and balanced meal.
Is CESAR® packaging recyclable?
The wet plastic trays are a #7 plastic, and can be recycled where facilities exist. The dry dog food bags are not recyclable.
