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 many cases when the dogs actually transferred tuberculosis to their owners such as when a little child was infected with TBC by their family dog in 2013. Luckily for the 10 year old child, he fully recovered but the dog was put to sleep. If that will not ‘’wake you up’’ then you should continue reading to see another good reason to avoid letting your dog licking your face.
The second good reason is saliva – you can get infection if you allow your dog to lick your wounds because the pathogen Porphyromonaspeel causes gum disease at dogs and gingivitis at humans and it can be transmitted from dogs to humans.
This article is not trying to force you to stop giving the love to your dog or even get rid of it but that you should be really aware of the contact with them because you can end up with health problems!
