How dirty are your dog's kisses?
We’ve all gotten licks of love from our dogs. However, would you let your dog kiss you on the mouth? Urban legend has it that dog’s mouths are very clean. "That's not true," said Nova Southeastern University Microbiologist Dr. Julie Torruellas-Garcia. Saliva samples from dogs in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, Florida, were sent to the lab to be tested. Based on the cultures that grew in the lab from the samples, Torruellas-Garcia said you may want to think twice before you and your dog exchange saliva.
