We don’t like to bring you bad news, but when your dog lick the face can bring you serious health problems.
So, why is it so bad? You thought the dog’s mouth cleaner than human? No! That is just a myth, people. The truth is that dogs eat garbage, someone else’s poop and they do not brush their teeth like us. This means that they can pass a variety of dangerous bacteria on us, when we get licked on the face.
You don’t believe us? 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 Porphyromonas 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.
