Did you know that he habit of letting you dog lick your face is very dangerous? If not, read on…
You may think that dog`s mouth is cleaner than human`s, but this is completely wrong! As we all know, dogs eat trash, someone`s poop, and of course, they don’t brush their teeth as we do. Therefore, the fact that they can transmit many bacteria on us doesn’t come as surprise. In fact, there are many cases of dogs transferring tuberculosis to their owner. Back in 2013, a child was infected with TBC by his dog. The child managed to recover by the dog was euthanized.
Yet another reason for not letting your dog lick your face is the Porfiromonas, a pathogen which may be transmitted from dogs to humans. For those who didn’t know, this pathogen causes gingivitis in humans and gum disease in dogs. If you let your dog lick you wounds, it is very likely that you may end up with a serious infection!
In case you are still not convinced, stop a think for a second about the things in which your dog pushes its mouth. It seems gross, doesn’t it?
Of course, this doesn’t mean that you need to get rid of your dog or stop caring for him! All we are saying is that you need to be cautious and don’t let your loved one lick your face.
