Dogs are always getting into trouble. They eat things that they shouldn’t be eating and then bring those germs back into your house and right to your face.
According to a top veterinarian, E. coli may be sitting right on your dog’s tongue. Other common diseases that can be transmitted from Fido are ringworms, staph infections and MRSA. Scary stuff!
In general, these diseases won’t hurt you if some slobber ends up on your hand. But since your lips, eyes and nose don’t have nearly as much protection, you should be careful where your dog’s saliva ends up.
