This is why you should never let your dog lick your mouth

Most people think it is cute to give their dog a big wet kiss on the lips, but what if I told you that it could literally kill you? That’s right.

No, I’m not saying your beloved dog is trying to harm you. Your little (or big) furry friend genuinely is trying to display affection with his dog lick.

Too bad the same can’t be said for all the bacteria on the dog’s tongue. Are dog mouths really cleaner than human mouths? No. That’s a total myth.

Author and dog expert Marty Becker puts it quite well when he says:

“All you have to do is look, watch, smell and you’ll realize that is not true.

They raid the garbage can. You know, we give each other a peck on the cheek when we say hello, they give each other a peck on the rear end.”

John Oxford, professor of virology and bacteriology at the Queen Mary University in London, expanded further on just how much bacteria your dog’s muzzle and mouth can carry.

“It is not just what is carried in saliva. Dogs spend half their life with their noses in nasty corners or hovering over dog droppings so their muzzles are full of bacteria, viruses and germs of all sorts.”

Basically, your dog’s mouth is disgusting and can pass diseases onto you through dog kisses…Like Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: This one’s really bad. How bad? This man was told by his doctor that his capnocytophaga canimorsus infection was caused by a dog licking his open wound.

Ringworm infection: A ringworm infection is one of the easiest diseases for your dog to pass onto you from smooching.

If the ringworm bacteria is around their mouth and you engage in kissing, bam. Ringworm for you too.

MRSA: MRSA infection in humans, which produce lesions like the unsightly one above, can be caused by as little as one lick from your dog.

Dogs can carry around this bacteria with very little effect on their own health but when an owner comes into contact with it.

Staphylococcus Aureus: Staphylococcus aureus is similar to MRSA.

Similar bacteria (which can be found in Fido’s mouth) cause it but that bacteria is not as resistant to treatment.

Are you going to catch a disease from your dog that leaves you with one foot and disfigured hands? Probably not.

But are you going to take the chance? Seriously, avoid those kisses.

Dog and Cat Licking Can Be “Deadly” – The Truth About It

Cats wash themselves very often, and dogs love to lick us, their human companions, to show their love of course, but how many bacteria are in a lick, and is it harmful to all of us?

In some tests, scientists found nearly a million live bacteria on each gram of cat hair, but we have stroked cats for many years and been fine right?

Here is a case we might consider, maybe this doesn’t apply to all of us, but could it? – Julie McKenna came to the hospital, back in 2007, in Mildura, Australia, she could hardly speak. Her arms and legs were cold and her face was going purple.

Julie was in septic shock, said the doctors, bacteria in her bloodstream were multiplying poisoning her. Even after she had antibiotics the purple color kept spreading, her organs were failing her. Parts of her arms were starting to turn black!

Capnocytophaga canimorsus, a bacteria found in the saliva of healthy dogs and cats was the cause, it was two whole weeks before doctors found this out…

It was then that Julie realized that she burnt her left foot with hot water a few week before she became sick, it wasn’t a bad burn she remembers. The little fox terrier licked it better for her!

Most of us don’t really think about whats in our pets saliva, or what it could do to us, normally our immune system and a layer of skin is our barrier to these germs, but if there is a break in the barrier, thats when the trouble can start!

Animal bits can be serious, 10-15% of dog bites can become infects and 50% of cat bites too. The end result can be fatal. A total of around 25% of people with confirmed C. canimorsus infections died.

Scientists are now identifying many potential pathogens in our pets slobbery or scratchy lick!

In Julie’s case the antibiotics saved her life but not before her left leg below the knee and part of her right foot had to be cut off, it didn’t stop there she also lost every one of her fingers and toes.

She said:

“It’s changed my life in every aspect”

Following are a few of the myths about our pets’ mouths and the reality of what coats them, and us, with each pass of their tongue:

Actually, says Floyd Dewhirst, a bacterial geneticist at the Forsyth Institute and professor of oral medicine at Harvard; one of the biggest reasons we could get infections from our pets, is that our bacterial ecosystems are so different from each other.

He says:

“If you look at humans and dogs, we only saw about 15 percent that are the same species”

“Part of that may be what the bacteria evolved to eat”

In Human mouths, they are dominated by streptococcal bacteria, which are excellent at consuming sugars. For dogs and cats, they don’t eat these sugars so don’t have many streptococcal bacteria. The oral microbes of cats and dogs, in comparison, overlap by about 50 percent.

Dewhirst says that a single lick can put untold millions of these unfamiliar bacteria on us, on our skin, and if we are compromised, our skin or immune defenses or both it could be very serious!

He said:

“So, if you’re licked by a dog, and someone were to take a Q-tip five hours later and rub that spot, they could recover over 50 different species of dog-mouth bacteria”

History is packed with folklore telling us that canine saliva can heal us rather than harm us. Dogs supposedly licked wounds at the ancient Greek temple of Asclepius (the god of healing).

There are many antibacterial compounds in dog and cat mouths, small molecules called peptides, in humans’ mouths also. But your pet’s tongue is not necessarily a magic healer!

The good news for pet owners is that most of a cat’s and dog’s oral bacteria won’t survive indefinitely on their hair. The bad news is that they don’t die right away.

The most important thing to be sure the bacteria don’t penetrate the skin and good general cleanliness, washing hands… as long as your immune system is good and you don’t have any cuts or wounds on your face or mouth that could let bacteria into your bloodstream, your pretty safe!

The young and the old must be more careful as their immune systems are not quite as strong, so caution is strongly advised in these cases!

So, wash those hands, all you pet lovers, and maybe think again before letting any dog or cat plant a big wet one on your face!


Homeless Dog Owners Get A Special Christmas Gift For Their Dogs This Year!

oday there are thousands upon thousands of people who are homeless and living on the streets, I think that over Christmas it’s especially difficult, depressing and if you have a dog very hard to both keep warm!

It’s these pets that comfort, love and protects their owners,  they don’t have a home or indeed any place to go anymore! One rescue group decided to really help out this year and give a special holiday gift to the pets that are such a comfort for their loving owners!

The animal rescue group called the RSPCA are wandering around the streets and seeking out the homeless and their pets, they each get a gift of special waterproof coats to keep their pet warm all through the winter.

In many of the areas, they visit the temperatures are well below 50F and the RSPCA hopes that these coats will help the dogs keep warm and healthy.

Also, their loving owners will have one thing less to worry about this hard winter time they must endure.

Amy Quirk, from the RSPCA, said:

“While we can’t help all of them, we wanted to do something to show some kindness during these winter months …As many of these people told us, their dogs are their lifeline and they want to do the very best for them, so by handing out these coats, we are just helping them in a small way to keep the pets they rely on so much happy and healthy.”

As the rescue center workers do their daily jobs they will be on the lookout for any and all homeless people and their pets to give them their special Christmas, quite lifesaving in some cases, gifts!

Each time the team of workers has found somebody on the streets with a dog, they will be getting well looked after, what a great idea and a great way to save the doggies in the streets this winter!

Down to the very last person has been super grateful for these fabulous Christmas gifts they received for their beloved pets that keep them company all year long.

Not only that but the doggies look pretty delighted too, and especially when they feel lovely and warm too!

A guy told the RSPCA in one video:

“She’s my ear, she’s my shoulder, she’s my best friend …She’s my protection — she’s everything.”

The Best Christmas Gift Ever For A Doggie That Spent Their Entire Life On Streets!

When you’re stuck in a prison you know about it, well this doggie must have felt like she was stuck in some kind of prison because all she knew was a cold concrete ground and a chain fence, however, now she looks amazing in comparison!

Bailey, who was called ‘Kayseeboo ’ by her previous fosterer was given this amazing second chance when her owners came to see the reality of the situation that they could not care for her the way she should have been cared for anymore…

She was surrendered to a shelter, in the hopes she will have a better hole with someone else. She was taken in by ‘Fur Friends in Need’ based in New Jersey, they are a fine animal rescue shelter.

While she was in the rescue center, the staff taught her how to play fetch for the very first time in her life, how sweet, and how excited she must have been to discover how to play fetch!

Her foster mom, Millie Acosta, gave her the very first bed, Christmas really came early for this lovely doggie.


Millie went everywhere with her, even to the yoga classes, how lovely! She has definitely shown what a lovely sweet dog she is, and her kind nature.

Millie said:

“You can do anything with a foster dog!”


The life she was experiencing now was so far from the life she had before, but it was going to get even better still…


On the other end of the scale, Nicole Greene and her husband, Jamie, were just recovering from when their beloved doggie Ellie died.

Nicole said:

“She was a pit bull mix we adopted when we were volunteering at an animal shelter …Pit bulls have such a bad reputation and her demeanor was so amazing that we just knew she was meant to be ours. She changed a lot of lives and opinions that people have about pit bulls.”


The couple and their third dog Charlie were all very sad and grieving their loss. They decided that they needed to have another dog and what is better than to rescue another dog and giving them a loving home.

She said:

“Jamie and I were searching for a member to add to our family. We were fairly insistent on adopting a pit bull because we love them so much and believe that they are fantastic dogs.”


After a lot of time searching for what they were after they finally saw a 5-year-old black pit bull who had spent all her life stuck outside.

Nicole said:

“Her description seemed too good to be true, as they were all the qualities my husband and I were looking for in a dog (cuddly, loves giving kisses, follows you around) …Once we spoke with Millie, her foster mom, for about 45 minutes and heard her horrible life story so far, we knew we had to meet Kayseeboo.”

When they met her it was like a match made in heaven, it was so perfect!

Nicole then said:

“When we did meet her, we both fell instantly in love with her personality and her kisses! She is so sweet and nurturing despite what she’s been through …Jamie and I knew then and there that she was meant to be a part of our family.”


To make sure that the adopters are suitable ‘Fur Friends in Need’ does hole visits and to protect the rescue dogs, they are very responsible.

Nicole said that:

“When we had to wait a week for the home visit, it was torture! …Neither of us slept because we couldn’t wait for her to be ours.”

Thankfully for both doggie and the lovely couple adopting her, they didn’t have any longer to wait now, they had been approved. They renamed Kayseeboo to Bailey and were home in a great time to celebrate the holidays!


Nicole said:

“She met Charlie …Once that went well, she sniffed around, played in her new yard and got comfortable in her new home.”


Millie said her goodbyes to the lovely doggie she had grown very fond of, she was so happy she had found such a lovely loving home.

Millie said:

“Pit bulls are always so hard to adopt …She is truly wonderful, this pup.”

Bailey is settling in really well into her new home, lots of lovely walks with great smells, and of course lots of treats and love!

Nicole said:

“She loves sleeping right between Jamie and me every night so far”

They even got her a set of Christmas pajamas, bless her!




Dramatic Incident With A Labrador Stuck in Frozen Lake!

Firefighters not only brave deadly burning fires but they also come to the rescue for our pets in awkward places where we can’t get to them, and of course in this story in the deadly icy river waters too. This Labrador was stuck in excess of an hour in the icy depths of the River Wansbeck.

The animal rescue group called the RSPCA were alerted to the situation by a rowing club in Ashington, Northumberland. The nine-year-old Labrador called Hardy had plunged into the river and wasn’t able to get out again!

Stuck in the ice, and finding it hard to move, numb from the icy waters all around the pup, the dog walker who stopped to help couldn’t save the poor nearly frozen doggie.

Hardy, aptly named and he really was hardy indeed was clinging to the surface with his paws, just desperately looking for someone to save him before he slipped away!

Coming to Hardy’s aid was Inspector Jaqui Miller, she was tied to a rope, just in case she slipped in too, her colleges held onto the rope tightly while she ventured out!


Miller said:

“We were really worried about poor Hardy as he had been stuck in the ice for about an hour in the freezing cold water …He had been out walking with his dog walker when he had run into the river not realizing that the minus six-degree weather we’ve had recently had frozen the water.”

Hardy was so happy to get home all safe, just in time to have some sausages!

Miller went on:

“His dog walker told us he’s so used to paddling in the river and the sea that he just bounded off hoping for a little swim …I made sure I was securely fastened to the rope and started across the ice.”

“As I got closer to Hardy I could hear him whimpering and I kept calling back to him to try and reassure the poor dog …I managed to grab him by his scruff and help Hardy push himself up onto the ice. He must have been freezing because he didn’t hang around but scampered off towards his dog walker.”

Miller told everyone how the rescue was a team effort and how they all worked together to safely rescue Hardy, the firefighters and their rope made it all possible to rescue him safely and get him to safety quickly.

Miller then said:

“I made sure I was securely fastened to the rope and started across the ice. As I got closer to Hardy I could hear him whimpering and I kept calling back to him to try and reassure the poor dog …I managed to grab him by his scruff and help Hardy push himself up onto the ice. He must have been freezing because he didn’t hang around but scampered off towards his dog walker.”

“The firefighters then tugged on the rope which was attached to me and pulled me back onto land where I could check Hardy over. He had a small cut on his paw and was pretty cold but apart from this he was absolutely fine.”

The rescue group the RSPCA are telling all dog owners to keep their dogs well away from frozen ponds, rivers, and lakes which really do pose a bigger threat to your pet that some may realize!


Also, make sure that your dog’s paws do not get clogged up with snow too, it could seriously hurt them if they get frostbite in their delicate feet!

The RSPCA says:

“If your dog ventures onto the ice, never follow them onto it, instead call fire and rescue services for help.”

Miller checked in on Hardy later that same day, and she was delighted to see that he was well and felt much better and warm; he had some nice sausages to make him feel better.

Miller said:

“He’s quite a strong dog who’s been used to swimming in the north sea, so he seemed pretty unfazed by it all and was just happy to be home where he was even treated to a sausage or two!”

Maybe we can SHARE this story and warn others about the dangers of frozen rivers, lakes and ponds as well as other areas with frozen waters, let’s all be safe this Winter!


Nearly Frozen To Death, Nearly Lost Both Eyes, The Dog Who Found A Home On New Years Day!

What could be better than a new year, perhaps for a doggie a new loving home could be even better. This Pit Bull terrier mix breed was saved from the freezing cold streets of Church Hill in Richmond in December and to coincide with the new year’s day, has a new home!

Animal Care and Control, Richmond, said: – “Thank you to everyone for loving her along the way …If this wasn’t awesome enough, the family that was our last adoption of 2017 sponsored the first adoption of 2018 which turned out to be Penelope!”

The doggie, Penelope had many intense surgeries that were covered by the RACC’s foundation!

A woman discovered the doggie on a Street, 33rd Street in Church Hill, after work one day, the dog was shivering next to the bushes. When she saw the dog and especially in such a sad condition she knew what to do straight away, she called animal control to help the dog.

The dog looked to be about three or four years old as they examined her, she had been involved in what looked like dog fighting by her condition, but the case is still being investigated!

The vets assessed the dog and were quite concerned that she might lose her eyes, they treated her for hypothermia and cleaned up many bite wounds, she had various fractures and holes in her sinus cavity. Thankfully her eyes survived as she recovered.

Director Christie Chipps Peters said:

“Penelope is the poster child for the work our shelter does every single day …We rescue animals from terrible situations, work hard to rehabilitate and provide medical care and then strive to find a great forever home.”

“We are thrilled that we could be a part of this sweet dog’s life at a time when she needed it most. Additionally, we are so very grateful to everyone that supports our city shelter.”

In 2017 the RACC said that for the first time ever that there was enough funding for every single life-saving surgery and for that year in addition that was the year they had record financial support!

Totaling up that amounts to around $115,000 of medical care for both dogs and cats, of course, the year before this the RACC could only helpless than around 70% of the animals they took in!

Robin Young, from the RACC, said:

“Neglect, we see animals that are injured, animals hit by a car, thanks to this foundation we were able to cover the emergency care of any animal in need in the city”

“Because of you, we funded 71 medical repair surgeries, 7 trips to the neurologist, 11 surgeries/treatments at the animal eye center, 32 heartworm treatments, 2 trips to the cardiologist and one to a dermatologist”

“Your ongoing support through donations, social media sharing, and word-of-mouth has enabled the Foundation to reach new levels in its support of RACC this past year.”

Funding more than 1,000 hours of behavioral training and assessments services to really ensure that both dogs and cats are found suitable and safe homes.

Young said:

“Penelope was definitely was a critical case when we found her …She was definitely a case where she needed care and she needed it right away. There wasn’t time to wait for another private shelter to come in.”

The RACC is overjoyed to achieve its target in 2017 and regard this as one of their key milestones, Young also said that they will need just as much, if not more in 2018, the year ahead!

We wish them the very best of luck and hope that they will keep going the way they have! They will welcome all donations!

Cleveland police officers Neil Pesta and Brian Kellums responded to a call about a male suspect who was beating a dog in the middle of the street.

Witnesses claimed they saw the man beating the Abused Pit Bull with a leather belt, hit the dog in the face with a brick, and choke him. One of the witnesses had convinced the suspect to hand over the dog before calling the authorities.

The poor pit bull, who was only about one-year-old at the time, was battered and traumatized. He sustained injuries to his face, legs, and paws. But then, something amazing happened. As soon as the officers arrived at the scene, the sweet, gentle dog jumped right into their car.

He was ready to begin a life without abuse, but who could love an unwanted pit bull?

After the dog was treated for his injuries, Cleveland Patrol Officer Brandon Melbar agreed to foster the pit bull, who he named Harvard. On a temporary basis until he was ready to be adopted by a forever family.

However, Officer Melbar quickly fell in love with Harvard and couldn’t bear to part with his new best friend. The officer and the pit bull are now father and son, and. Harvard has spent the last year surrounded by love, care, and lots of pampering. God bless this hero officer who went above and beyond the call of duty and gave Harvard his second chance!

Follow Harvard’s inspiring story below, and please SHARE this Abused Pit Bull video with your friends on Facebook!

It was a horrific beating; the monster of a man hit the dog in the face with a brick, and choked him.


As soon as officers arrived at the scene, this battered dog revealed his sweet, gentle nature.

Without hesitation, the pit bull jumped right into their squad car and let the sun shine on his back.

It was clear he was ready to begin a life without abuse — but once brought to shelters, we all know that pit bulls have a particularly tough time finding forever homes.


Cleveland Patrol Officer Brandon Melbar agreed to foster the Abused Pit Bull, who he named Harvard, on a temporary basis.

However, Officer Melbar quickly fell in love with Harvard and couldn’t bear to part with his new best friend. He decided to adopt Harvard.


This wasn’t the first time a Cleveland Police Officer went above and beyond the call of canine duty.

The viral photo below shows Cleveland Police Patrol Officer John Lyons lying down with one of the many dogs he has rescued. In 2013, Officer Lyons found a sick, pregnant dog and brought her home. She gave birth to her puppies, who he and his wife began caring for.


Harvard received the medical treatment he needed, and his wounds have since healed.

Thanks to Officer Melbar, Harvard has spent the last year as a happy, healthy pup!


God bless this hero officer for giving Harvard his second chance at a life of love.



The Aquarium Trade

It sounds funny to think that a little Chihuahua would be able to stop a thief. If you think about it, other than yapping and possibly causing lots of harm with their sharp little teeth, any criminal could easily pick up the Chihuahua and the dog’s effort to stop crimes would be in vain. However, Carly, a Chihuahua from St. Johns, Canada became a hero when her yapping alerted her owners of a man that was trying to steal her fur sibling, a Newfoundland named Silas.

Little guard dog in alert

The pet owners let her dog’s out around 8:00 p.m. and a minute later Carly started barking nonstop. Dooling went out to investigate and saw a man dragging her Newfoundland down her driveway.


Without hesitating, the woman self-described as short walked up to the man and punched him on the face, then took her dog back home with her.

The man had come prepared with his own leash and had hooked up the leash to Silas’s leash. There was no way that I was going to be able to wrestle the dog out of his hands so the only thing I could think was just punch him, said Dooling.

After hitting the man, the criminal ran off down the street. It’s an inconvenience or a nuisance, you could say, when she does bark, but she’s my guard dog. Some people have big Dobermans I have a Chihuahua.

Meet the bravest little dog

As for her dogs, Dooling said Silas was subdued for much of the night and next day after the near-theft, while Carly the Chihuahua was on high alert, barking at anything that passed by the windows.

We have been reading posts on social media regarding people stating that there have been attempts to steal dogs from backyards. At this time we would like to remind everybody that any suspicious activity *needs* to be phoned in to us so patrol division can be dispatched and investigate.

Additionally, if you see that a friend has something posted on their Facebook of this nature please encourage them to call.

The mysterious pooch was discovered by a journalist and their news crew who were in the Bang Rakam District of Thailand reporting on drought conditions. The news crew revealed that they spotted the dog after it ran out of a house near to where they were filming. They then turned the camera on the adorable animal and shot a short video clip which was uploaded to Thai news site Matichon on November 12.


A daring dachshund proved herself a rare breed of heroine after she saved two boys from a savage bear attack. The super sausage dog raced into action after spotting two boys being ravaged by a massive black bear in Russia.

Bear attacks boys in Russia

The giant animal attacked the youngsters soon after they emerged from their village shop. “He caught up with Stas first. The bear threw him to the ground, began to trample him, bite him, he grabbed his head, then shoulder and back. I watched – and ran at the bear. I didn’t think about myself or what would happen. I just wanted to save my friend.”


At this point the bear, which now had a sore head, turned on Nikita, gnawing and clawing him, leaving Stas wounded and frightened. At this moment a little dachshund called Tosya arrived on the scene and barked furiously at the bear. Now the beast left Nikita and chased the darting dog into the forest.

Tosya diverted the bear well away from the village, before losing the wild animal and returning safely home. According to one report, the dog , hailed as a heroine, was rewarded with cake.

Bear cub alerts tourists

Both children were rushed to hospital, with Stas suffering scratches, bites and bruises, while Nikita had more serious wounds, with deep cuts on his hands, and bites on his legs.

Nikita’s mother Maria Nikonova says: “It was a shock. I couldn’t believe that bears can attack children in the middle of the village. It was terrible to look at all these lacerations, his torn clothes all covered in blood.”

Hunters tracked and shot the bear, which had earlier left a village couple marooned in their house as it laid waste to their garden. A bear cub created absolute havoc by running inside a coffee shop, running around the coffee shop and attempting to jump on tables.

Laughter can be heard on the clip, and everyone was quickly moved out of the way of the bear and it ran out of the shop again. It is thought that the cub might have been lost and disorientated or separated from its mother.

The smell of food, coffee and pastries may also have attracted the bear to explore inside. Hilariously, the shop advertises itself as a place where tourists can get close to nature – in this case, far closer than anyone would expect.


Pit Bull Story: Hero dog adopted through rescue organization helps boy.

When the Daniels family adopted Ember from a rescue organization, they had no idea that she would become so attached to her human brother, Tre. She loved her 10-year-old boy and slept at the foot of his bed every night. But one evening, Tre’s mother woke to Ember making an odd sound. She had left her comfy place in Tre’s bed and was pacing. Mrs. Daniels knew something must be wrong, so she followed Ember. The pup led her to the bathroom where Tre’s feet were hanging outside of the bathtub. Tre had suffered a seizure and fell back into the tub. Thanks to Ember’s quick action, Tre was rushed to the hospital and got the medical attention he needed. When he got back home, Ember refused to leave his side. That’s a loving pup!


Fighting Dogs Rescued

372 canines were seized as evidence in the second largest dog fighting criminal case in the United States. Two weeks after the raid, CNN was invited to visit the facility where a majority of the dogs are being housed on September 5, 2013. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) converted an air-conditioned warehouse into a temporary shelter. NOTE: For security reasons the location is not being disclosed, just SE United States
