If you’re a dog lover you know that nobody can love you the way your dogs love you. Even if you have just gone out to check the mail, your dog will be excited and happy to see you and shower you with his kisses. They lick your face and show you love and want some attention in return. But you should never let them do so.

Well, we think that it’s absolutely okay to let your dog lick your face but what if that can kill you? Have you ever thought about it? A lot of researches and studies show that if your dog licks you, you’re putting your health at risk and sometimes it may even kill you.

Dr. Nielanjan Nandi, an assistant professor of medicine at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia told The New York Times that dogs’ mouths contain “an enormous oral micro biome of bacteria, viruses, and yeast.” And hence, you should never let them lick you.
