Why You Shouldn’t Let Your Dog Lick Your Mouth

Letting your dog lick your mouth happens to be something wrong. I don’t let my Labrador do that, but sometimes we can get close and share some kisses and hugs.

It’s not just what’s in the dog’s saliva. They spend their lifetime sticking their noses and mouth over dog’s pee and other droppings. Their mouth is full of bacteria, germs, and viruses. Its mouth is disgusting and can pass some disease on to you through dog kisses or lickings.

Here are some of the diseases that could transfer to you:

Capnocytophaga Canimorsus

It’s an infection that was caused by a dog that has been licking his open wound.

Ringworm Infection

It’s one of the easiest diseases for your dog to pass on you. It’s spread exactly around his mouth and will transfer to you through kissing. And just like that, you are going to have ringworm, as well.


The dogs can carry around the MRSA around the whole time. It won’t have some effect on their health, but if you come in contact with it, you are going to feel the consequences.

Staphylococcus Aureus

This bacteria is similar to MRSA, but not as resistant to treatment as the previous disease.

  1. I have always avoided letting any dog lick me & I always wash my hands after touching dogs. I’ve always had plenty of dogs. We have 5, right now. I never feed a dog from the table. I’ve seen people hand feed their dogs while eating their own meals. The dog’s mouth touches their fingers & they go right back to eating & touch their fingers to their lips. Lots of people believe the old myth that dogs’ mouths are cleaner than humans’ mouths. I have never believed it. How could a mouth that eats cat poop & other animal poop, be cleaner than ours? Yuck! I love my dogs, but I also know they have plenty of germs.
