Most Popular Myths about Dogs

#1 A dog’s mouth happens to be cleaner than the average person


Dogs are by nature very lively and highly emotional creatures, and it is quite common to witness dogs licking the hands or even face of someone they are fond of. And since such occurrences almost always never trigger any discernible health consequences, many people believe that dogs’ mouths are usually cleaner than most individuals Fact: This is an entirely false belief, and by merely considering some of the things dogs ingest, it can clearly be established that a dog’s mouth is not as clean as some people would believe. A dog’s mouth carries with it a lot of germs and other gooey things. What most people don’t comprehend is that many of these germs are specific to dogs alone and are rarely harmful to man.
