We all love dogs, right? Well, at least most of us. Many people have dogs, play with them, cuddle, and there are some people who let their dogs lick their face.
Well, if you are one of those people, then we have bad news for you. The medical experts say that when your dog licks your face, it can cause some serious health problems.
Here’s what you need to know – many people think that the dog’s mouth is much cleaner than the human’s, but that’s not true. That is just a myth, people. The real truth is that dogs eat garbage, someone else’s poop and they do not brush their teeth like us. You should know that dogs can transfer different dangerous and harmful bacteria on us, when we get licked on the face.
But, if you don’t believe us, then you should read these examples, when the dogs transferred tuberculosis on their owners. Did you know that 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.
Here’s another reason why you should avoid the dog’s saliva – the pathogen Porfiromonas. This dangerous pathogen 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!
But, if this isn’t enough for you, then you should think of all “wonderful and beautiful” things, in which your dog pushes its nose.
Don’t get us wrong, because 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. We really hope you find this article helpful and don’t forget to share with your friends and family. Thank You.
