Can You Get Sick of a Dog Licking You?

Answer

Dogs have an antibiotic in their saliva that helps keep bacteria away from their internal organs and throats. Letting your dog lick you will probably not harm you and the danger may be greater to him than to you. What a person might catch from letting a dog lick his or her mouth is rather surprising and what a dog could contract is even more astonishing. It is quite possible to get roundworms from letting a dog lick your mouth but most chances are minimal.
