Coronavirus can have symptoms similar to many other diseases. These diseases may include:

  • Dietary indiscretion-a common cause of vomiting and diarrhea

  • Food-borne bacterial infection - some foods can give dogs gas or diarrhea, a similar symptom to coronavirus

  • Hemorrhagic gastroenteritis (HE)-an inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract causing bloody diarrhea

  • Ileus - a condition in which normal bowel movement is obstructed causing a "functional obstruction" of the intestine

  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) - a condition in which inflamed cells clog the intestinal wall causing chronic vomiting, diarrhea and weight loss; biopsy of affected intestine is required for diagnosis

  • Intussusception-a prolapse or "telescoping" of one portion of the intestinal tract into another causing partial or complete obstruction of the bowel, a symptom which can also be a complication of coronavirus; X-rays or an ultrasound may be necessary for diagnosis

  • Mechanical obstruction or foreign body - an object ingested by your pet that is stuck in a part of the intestine (a toy, bone, piece of clothing, etc., for example)

  • Other viral infections of the intestines - parvovirus and other viruses with similar symptoms of coronavirus

  • Pancreatitis - an inflammation of the pancreas (the digestive gland located between the liver, spleen, kidneys, stomach and duodenum)

  • Parasites - intestinal worms that feed on an animal host (some also cause bloody diarrhea, vomiting, weakness, weight loss and lethargy) causing similar symptoms of coronavirus
