Should You Let A Dog Lick Your Face
That feeling when you meet a new dog and it'sall like and I'm all YAAAAAS LOVE MEEEE! Is that grossé Greetings canine connoisseurs, dog devotees,puppy pundits!! Okay, I'll stop. I'm Julian, this is DNews. Welcome. Although cats arethe most popular pet in the US, outnumbering dogs by around 8 million, there are about12 million more households with dogs presumably because crazy cat ladies. At least one DNewsepisode shows that humans who live with animals are affected by the animal's microbiome. Butwhat about when those pups try and lick your faceé GROSS. Or, is ité What exactly shouldI be feelingé I'm so conflicted.
First, there is a myth out there that dog'smouths are cleaner than a human's. This is not true. Both humans and dogs mouths containbacteria, lots of it. And there's really no way to directly compare, because while theyare both mouths, they're completely different environments! Studies of the bacteria of dogs mouths havefound hundreds of species of bacteria, with quot;significantquot; differences to human mouths.Only 16 percent of dog oral microbiota overlaps with humans. Another study in the Archivesof Oral Biology, says there are definitely harmful pathogens in your pup's facehole!A separate study in PlosOne from 2015, found
that oraltooral transfers of bacteria fromdogs to owners can cause gingivitis and periodontal disease! P. gulae, for example, can cause inflamedgums and even tooth loss.it's super rare in humans, but common in dogs, and 16 percentof owners had it! There's even some bacteria in dogs mouthswhich are antibiotic resistant, meaning if it were to spread to humans, we would havetrouble treating it. On top of all THAT, if you have a cut in your mouth, or some bleedinggums from basic gingivitis, bacteria from your dog's tongue could enter that openwound, and spread infections deeper into your
body. We do have some natural defenses, though.Both human and dog saliva have antibacterial properties. They're basic, but play a partin woundlicking. That DOESN'T mean you should let your pet lick your wound though. *Casestudies have found infections from another mouth bacteria in animals called Pasteurellacan result. A pasteurella infection can be treated with antibiotics, but can also bedangerous as it opens the way for more serious infections. So, the thing is, yes, face licking can begrossâ€¦ but there's not actually a ton of
danger from infectious bacteria. They AREthere, so being skeezedout at the idea of swapping saliva with a dog is probably warranted.But sources are quick to say, both mouths contain tons of bacteria. Plus, PET LOVERS:INFECTION GOES BOTH WAYS. You don't want to infect your dog with YOUR dirty mouth do youé!To be honest, you're more likely to catch an infection by swapping saliva with anotherhuman than with a dog, but just to be safeâ€¦ you knowâ€¦ the more you know the better.You do you, but think about where you put your mouth, and if you're a kid or elderly,you're even more susceptible to infection. In the end the Centers for Disease Controlrecommends anytime you ever come in contact
with any dog you wash your hands afterward.Maybe splash a little soapy water on your face if you're getting puppy kisses too. TT Newsletter pushTestTube now has a newsletter!
