Since December 2019, the world is undergoing an unprecedented mayhem. This situation is not due to a third world war or an economic crisis but to the fast spread of a novel virus called SARS-CoV2. This virus is responsible of a respiratory illness named COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease 2019). Since its first apparition in Wuhan (China), this disease is spiraling like wild fire and is now reported in 187 countries and regions in the world. With more than 9 million COVID-19 positive cases and more than 450,000 deaths, most health systems are overpassed in different countries which are gathering their efforts to mitigate and flatten the epidemic curve. In this situation, the involvement of multidisciplinary professionals is crucial to properly and effectively handle this pandemic. Indeed, veterinarians have a crucial role and central tasks in the struggle of this ‘human’ disease.
