THIS is Why You Should Never Let Your Dog Lick You!

You might think it’s cute – that big, wet and slobbery tongue reaching out from your canine’s jaw and affectionately lapping at your face.

But what if I told you there was something quite sinister about it?

No, I’m not saying your beloved Fido is trying to harm you. Your little (or big) furry friend genuinely is trying to display affection.

Too bad the same can’t be said for all the bacteria on the dog’s tongue.

Are dog mouths really cleaner than human mouths?

No. That’s a total myth.

Author and dog expert Marty Becker puts it quite well when he says:

“All you have to do is look, watch, smell and you’ll realize that is not true.

They raid the garbage can. You know, we give each other a peck on the cheek when we say hello, they give each other a peck on the rear end.”

John Oxford, professor of virology and bacteriology at the Queen Mary University in London, expanded further on just how much bacteria your dog’s muzzle and mouth can carry.

“It is not just what is carried in saliva. Dogs spend half their life with their noses in nasty corners or hovering over dog droppings so their muzzles are full of bacteria, viruses and germs of all sorts.”

Those viruses and germs can cause conditions that can be damaging to human health, as one U.K. woman learned the hard way.

She contracted an infection from her Italian greyhound’s saliva. She didn’t even realize anything was wrong until she was on the phone with a relative and began to notice her speech slurring.

By the time the ambulance arrived, she was slumped in her chair, her health degrading rapidly. She recovered with two weeks of intensive care and plenty of antibiotics.

Blood tests showed the infection was due to capnocytophaga canimorsus bacteria, which is commonly found in the mouths of dogs and cats.

She’s not alone – there have been 13 similar cases throughout the UK.

That’s not the only disease Fido can pass onto you through dog kisses.

There’s also ringworm infection.

Herpes_circiné_01

A ringworm infection is one of the easiest diseases for your dog to pass onto you from smooching. If the ringworm fungus is around their mouth and you engage in kissing, bam. Ringworm for you too.

MRSA, anyone?

3721064969_37b9c552cd

MRSA infection in humans, which produce lesions like the unsightly one above, can be caused by as little as one lick from your dog.

Dogs can carry around this bacteria with very little effect on their own health but when an owner comes into contact with it… Yeah, it’s a bad time.

Staphylococcus Aureus

mrsa-staph-infection

Staphylococcus aureus is similar to MRSA. Similar bacteria (which can be found in Fido’s mouth) cause it but that bacteria is not as resistant to treatment.

I’d still want to avoid it altogether to be honest, I don’t know about you.

Capnocytophaga Canimorsus

This one’s really bad. How bad? Let’s put it this way – I’m easing you into it with some text before I drop the picture on you.

This man was told by his doctor that his capnocytophaga canimorsus infection was caused by a dog licking his open wound.

IMG_2903

His feet were even worse. One had to be partially amputated.

We’ll skip those photos.

Are you going to catch a disease from your dog that leaves you with one foot and disfigured hands? Probably not.

But are you going to take the chance?

Seriously, avoid those kisses.

Gum disease in dogs with a bad smell could be the cause of problems from licking your mouth!

    no gum disease and bad breath in dogs is cause they don’t brush their teeth regularly and they eat nasty stuff and lick their butt

      Do some research… I’m a veterinary assistant and I think people like you are the reason pets have bad dental problems. Your pet needs regular brushing at LEAST every other day, and yearly regular check ups for not just shots and a PE, but yes you guessed it a DENTAL cleaning and exam. They can get the same diseases as us, same diet issues as well as dental problems. I am pleading with anyone who reads this, pets are very expensive and need a lot of care and maintenance… If you can not pay for them to be seen regularly by a vet or for emergency visits to the vet, please do not buy an animal you cant afford to care for…. Get a gold fish…. and if you really want to invest in a life long pet please consider adoption at your local sanctuary! Don’t shop, adopt!!!

          So much depends on the dog. I’ve never had problems, nor brushed any of my dogs teeth until I got chihuahuas and a papillion. It was unheard of twenty years ago to brush a dogs teeth. But with these tiny dogs, it’s a must. They get gum disease and teeth rot very easily. She knows her job well. We have now progressed in the medical field that we know brushing a dogs teeth benefits them as much as it does ours.

        Off topic, but I really hate seeing “don’t shop, adopt”. So, am I some sort of second class citizen if I shop because, well, I am supporting “puppy mills?” – not all puppies are from puppy mills. My puppy, for one is not, and even if it was, that’s even more reason for it to deserve a loving home. ALL dogs deserve loving homes. I personally think, that people who adopt think they are above and beyond those who don’t because they think they did a ‘good deed’. (i.e, those who decide to purchase from a breeder). All dogs deserve loving homes regardless of how you came to own them, so stop promoting this “Don’t shop, adopt” bullshit.

Sorry, don’t totally believe this. A dog has a healing tongue. My springer has licked wounds that I’ve had in the past – cuts, scrapes etc and they have all healed super fast. My niece had an infected toe with all sorts of gunk oozing out; my pooch licked it for about a minute – result, toe healed!

Reply

    Even though the dog has healing tongue, it can be a medium of transmission of diseases. From infected toe to dog’s tongue and then to your lips. What if there’s a stranger and the dog lick his herpes.

Animals do not have healing tongues and no you got lucky is all Dogs mouths are loaded with bacteria why cause they eat gross stuff when was the last time you licked your butt after you took a crap? I am a veterinary technician and even when a dog has a wound we place an Elizabethan collar on them so they can not lick it which cause more infection. Keep on letting your dog lick you though and you will find out how that habit will hurt you cause this kind of stupidity deserves the Darwinism award of the year

      No need to call people stupid. My very uses those collars so they can’t chew at the stitches. There has been proof many times that a dog licking a wound helps it heal. Just because you don’t believe it, you don’t need to call people names. People didn’t believe in many alternate ways of healing, that they are more finding out actually work. If people were just getting lucky they didn’t get this, there would be millions of cases world wide. It’s not a matter of luck. It’s because kissing your dog does not cause this.

    Sometimes pets can give people diseases that you wouldn’t think of as being connected with pets. But some studies have shown that there is a link between people with small dogs and MS. Also some diseases such as cancers, but also others we don’t associate with viruses, are actually caused by viruses and some have been connected to pets, including chronic viral like illnesses and neurological disorders.

      There has to be something else going on. If this were possible just from kissing, there would be massive amounts of cases. Your dog would have had to contact something rare. You probably would have to have an open sore. Conditions would have to be perfect. Think about it, this isn’t going to just randomly happen because they have a few germs in their mouth.

      A lot of people do a lot of nasty things with their mouths, actually, and I’m sure they don’t always inform you of where their mouth has been before you kiss.
      Dogs don’t generally eat their own shit (unless they have a condition called cophorhaggia), in which case you would probably notice. .
      Actually, think of how often people contract things from other people versus from dogs. Your risk is exponentially higher of contracting something from a person.

After I cleaned my teeth with peppermint flavoured toothpaste Polly the Cat was always interested in licking my rather rotten teeth. This is how I learned the Cat has a rough abrasive tongue. The Cat was indoors most of the time, and the external dirt in the flat was from the shoes of myself, or guests. It must be added that saliva itself contains anti-bactericides so that’s very good in rabies free countries.
Despite the fact that cats use their claws to bury shit I have never had a problem with cat scratches that sometimes draw blood. Small puncture wounds also happen.These abrasions may well assist my body to keep up a decent immune system. Knowledge is better than fear.

Has to be the most biased article I ever read, and out ranks many others… This article is so unclear on every level. I’ve looked up many of these “scary” diseases that my dog is told to “carry” and many haven’t said its from animal… One can come from animal bites, but here’s the question, did the lady get bit while the dog was licking her? Love the scare tacit articles. Can’t fool someone who actually looks these up… Just another loser trying to get views.
I should’ve been dead over many times over the years then. I’ll wait for more scare tactic articles.

Lol, author fails to recognize that most of these infections, bar ringworm, tend to only be an issue for people who are immune compromised. Very progressive and intuitive writing.

It is not a useful article, it is more sensationalism than anything
else, because it does not give you the likelihood of these issues. Also
the odds are different if your dog is on a leash and not allowed to eat
from trash cans or the street. You may be more likely to be hit by
lightning that get an infection from a dog that is cared for. Kisses
will continue for this owner.

Whether one is for it or against it, given the relative rarity of these cases, it’s clearly a matter of weakened immune systems when comparing how common dog licks are with how frequent these diseases occur as a result of them.

I think the main link here is these people had open wounds which depending on their immune system could get any infection

Those gangrenous black fingers look like they are from uncontrolled diabetes. Ringworm is a fungus and can be picked up lots of ways, such as gardening. The lip lady probably kissed the wrong guy. Just saying, most of what dogs can give you, so can people and other sources.

Yes, I am going to take the chance. Dog kisses make my days happier. P.S. I am 73 years old, have been smooched by dogs for my entire life, and have never had any adverse reaction. I can’t say the same for the people I have kissed.

I’m more concerned with Wolfes than dogs. These pictures could have come from any old place. Call me crazy, but I think it’s a good idea to back up these photos with with third party support. However, if you live in fear of such and everything, get an Airedale; they’re not interested in licking people. Perhaps that’s because the Wolfeman wrote a similar article showing foul wounds on dogs due to their contact with humans. Who knows, who knows…

Health expert? Ringworm is a fungus, not a bacteria. It isn’t likely found in your pets mouth due the antimicrobial agents such as secretory IgA and lysozyme in your pets saliva. Ringworm spores are more probable to be carried on your pets skin and fur and you should be concerned if you pet (dog, cats or horses – all carry ringworm) has bald patches in their fur – as those spots are infectious. Since up to about 20% of the human population is infected with ringworm fungus at any given time – your probability of infection is probably higher in the US from humans than a house pet that doesn’t get out much.

That said you should be careful of what you put in your mouth that isn’t food. Regarding sharing your mouth with your dog – as my Dad told me as a child begging for his first dog. “You can have a dog when you are old enough to know which end to put in your mouth.”
