For the dog lovers we have some bad news! You should stop letting your dog licking your face because that can come along with many health problems. Many people are talking that dog’s mouth is cleaner than human’s. Well I will have to disappoint you but that is not true.
How can dog’s mouth be cleaner when they eat garbage, someone else’s poop and they do not even brush their teeth like we do? And that is exactly why they pass dangerous bacteria on you when your face is licked by a dog.
There are numerous examples when the dogs in this way transferred tuberculosis on their owners. In 2013, child was infected with TBC by family dog. The child, who was under 10 years old, fully recovered, but the dog was put to sleep.
- Another reason to avoid its saliva is because the pathogen Porfiromonas peel can be transmitted from dogs to humans. This pathogen causes gum disease at dogs and gingivitis at humans. Dogs can also give us a nasty infection if you allow them to lick your wounds!
If these reasons aren’t enough, just think of all “wonderful and beautiful” thing in which your dogs pushes it’s nose (in this case the mouth)…
- We’re not saying that you should get rid of your pet or that you should stop giving him the love and tenderness that he certainly as your best friend deserves, just try to keep his tongue in his mouth.
Please take this information’s very seriously and share them with other dog owners!!!
