As you ride the bus home from work, despite your stress and exhaustion, you can’t help smiling to yourself as you imagine the warm welcome you’ll soon receive from your furry friend back home! You get down on your knees and put your arms around his soft warm body as he squirms in joy and plants sloppy kisses all over your face.

While this display of affection is perfectly normal among pet owners, is it really safe?

Can you develope An infection just from kissing your dog?
“A dog’s saliva contains bacteria, viruses & yeasts that humans can’t tolerate or combat”

Though this is not a reason to avoid coming in contact with our pets but prevention is rather better than cure

Though this is not a reason to do away with our dogs or any form of discrimination but just to be extra careful, dogs still remain humans best friend

Face licking in dogs(owner/stranger) is a natural thing, most times they do this out of excitement but we just have to be keep them clean and free from dirty environments for this is a way of preventing these infections/diseases

I know of a friend from childhood who's wound got healed after his dog licked it. His father had tried everything but it just wouldn't heal until the dog licked it one day. I also know of another with chicken pox who got healed by the same means.
Dogs are love.
