Are pet kisses a health benefit or a hazard?

We’ve all heard the rumors about how allowing a dog to lick your face is bad for you.  In point of fact, however, that is not necessarily the case as research is showing that in some cases a good lick or two might actually be beneficial.

Ken Tudor, DVM, writing for PetMD has the full story:

Your veterinarian tells you to avoid letting your pets lick the faces of the family. She lists the numerous parasites and bacteria possibly present in pet saliva that may affect family members. Yet recent research suggests that the ancient practice of dog licking may indeed aid wound healing. My blog from two week ago looked at new research suggesting that dog intestinal bacteria may have a protective role against asthma in children.

So, is pet saliva a health hazard or benefit? The answer is probably both. However, routine veterinary care and simple sanitary practices can reduce fears that your pet’s lick is a family health risk.

Why Are Pets Health Hazards?

The mouth and the intestines of pets can harbor bacteria and parasites that can be transmitted to humans. They can cause an assortment of medical conditions in humans. Diseases transmitted from animals to humans are called “zoonotic” (zo-not-ick).


Pastuerella is a normal inhabitant of the mouth in cats and dogs that can cause skin, lymph node and, sometimes, more severe infections. Bartonella henselae, a bacterium that is transmitted to cats from fleas is also housed in the cats’ mouths. It is the cause of a severe skin and lymph node infection called cat-scratch-fever. Theoretically, humans can be infected by these bacteria by coming in contact with the saliva from a cat or dogs lick. The Center for Disease Control reports that most pastuerella and bartonella infections are the result of bites and scratches. Little data are available to substantiate that being licked by a pet is a major means of infection

Salmonellla, E. coli, Clostridia and Campylobacter are intestinal bacteria of pets that can cause severe intestinal disease in humans. The pets can be free of symptoms yet pass these bacteria in their feces (poop). Most human infection is generally due to oral contact of hands contaminated by the pet’s feces or fecal residue. Because pets lick their anus (butt), these bacteria can also be present in the mouth. Facial and lip licking is a potential route of infection from pet to human. Again, there is little proof that this is actually a major means of transmission.


Pets are hosts for many parasitic worms and single celled parasites. Human infection from these parasites can result in intestinal disease, skin problems, blindness, and brain disorders. Pets may live with these parasites in their intestines with no signs of illness. But eggs passed in the pet’s feces can infect humans. Like bacteria, the major route of infection to humans is fecal-oral. Pets that have licked their anus can potentially pass the parasite eggs to humans during facial licking.

With the exception of two single celled parasites, Giardia and Cryptosporidia, this type of infection is not likely. Most parasite eggs are not infective directly from the anus. They must undergo a period of maturation in the feces or contaminated environment in order to infect humans. Transmission to humans would require dogs licking human faces after mouthing or eating feces that was one to 21 days old, depending on the parasite. Because cats are not feces eaters (coprophagic), humans are unlikely to become infected by parasites from their cats.

Giardia and Cryptosporidia are immediately infective so potentially could be transmitted by a lick.

The Benefits of Pet Saliva

The belief in the curative power of a dog’s lick dates back to ancient Egypt and has persisted through time. In modern France a medical saying translates to “A Dog’s Tongue is a doctor’s tongue.” Recent research has identified products in saliva that indeed aid in healing.

Researchers in the Netherlands identified a chemical in pet saliva called histatins. Histatins speed wound healing by promoting the spread and migration of new skin cells.
Dr. Nigel Benjamin of the London School of medicine has shown that when saliva contacts skin it creates nitric oxide. Nitric oxide inhibits bacterial growth and protects wounds from infection.

Researchers at the University of Florida isolated a protein in saliva called Nerve Growth Factor that halves the time for wound healing.

Prudent Precautions With Pet Saliva

The risk of bacterial or parasitic infection from pet licks are the greatest for very young children, the aged, and immunosuppressed individuals on chemotherapy or inflicted with AIDS. Individuals with healthy immune systems are unlikely to become infected. Despite the relatively low risk of infection from pet licks, some sensible precautions by pet owners are in order. The Companion Animal Parasite Council recommends:

1.Regular deworming programs
2.Annual pet fecal examinations with appropriate anti-parasite treatment
3.Treatment to control fleas and ticks
4.Daily disposal of pet feces and compliance with pooper-scooper laws
5.Covering children’s sandboxes when not in use
6.Feeding cooked, canned, or dry pet food
7.Washing or cooking vegetables for human consumption
8.Adequate hand washing after exposure to feces or fecal contamination.

    Thanks. I think, from what I read here, if you know your pet is free of these diseases, a pet lick now and then is OK. Actually, we are more at risk from human kisses that exchange saliva because we don’t ask a “date” for their blood test results 🙂

    My cats lick my face. Next doors dog licks my face. Two of my cats drink milk from a cup shortly before I drink said milk.

    I read somewhere that cats saliva has more bugs and germs than any other creature.

    If this is true I am clearly immortal.

    Actually I often wake up in the morning with a cats bum on my face. This is not, I hasten to add, my fault nor my desire it just IS.

    If you have a pet – or in the case of cats – an animal that owns your home and allows you to reside there too as long as you feed them and love them – then, frankly, getting licked by said animal is a small price to pay.

    Anyway, given my former life style I reckon I’m allergic to rabies and it wouldn’t dare come near me 😉

    Sorry. I’m just a bit daft x

      No you aren’t. My little rescue min pin drinks out of my tea cup and the cats like to have a spoonful of ice cream when I eat it and they get it from the same spoon I use. If I am going to die I will die and if it animal related I will die doing what I love. Oh noez, I said the love word again with animals. I am going to burn in hellfire for this my friends. I’ll save you all seats and make sure the bar has good liquor.

    One must not and should not condone bestiality in any way shape or form. It is an abhorrent act that, sadly is all too legal in the US. It’s legal in Alabama, Connecticut, Hawaii, Kentucky, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming and the District of Columbia.

    Legal or not, you should not be sharing articles that encourage zoophilia, it is quite simply wrong.

    Repeat: bestiality is a crime.

      What ridiculous, absolute BULLSHIT. No one is talking about bestiality here you idiot. Read the article. I sense, however, that you’re a Jesus Jumper and that you find animals to be filthy, low disgusting creatures without souls. Billions of people disagree with you, so go the fuck away.

This is probably the craziest of the crazies, and it’s so bizarre it might well be some sort of nutty game. Regardless this level of nuttiness is worth observing. Shows us just how many mentally unbalanced folk there are in the USA.

      February 12, 2014 at 2:09 pm

      Seriously, you compare a lick from a dog or cat to be bestiality? That tells me a lot more about you that you would think that than it does the author of this posting. You’ve heard the saying “methinks the lady doth protest too much” and you do know what projection is right? It’s ok if you are friendly with the animals, kinda kinky and nasty, but if that’s your deal own it.

      You need to get your head out of your ass to know what bestiality is, let me help you with that. Fuckin mules is bestiality, same with fuckin horses, cows and sheep and any other specimens of creature. Do you also know that your god watches you touch yourself in the shower or bath and that can be construed as gay sex, because it’s you touching a same sex person. Yep, it is and don’t say it isn’t because it is you touching a same sex person and that is against all the teachings of your buybull according to those who believe in the book of how to survive the after life. Look it up, I’ll wait.

    I have just read your profile and, you actually say yourself, you are a self-confessed animal lover! It makes me sick to the stomach!

    Your use of language is appalling too.

    • Michael John Scott

      February 11, 2014 at 7:14 pm

      Bestiality? Really? Of course I love animals, you fucking idiot, which is why I reacted so strongly to your bizarre post, which you clearly did not read. Secondly, I doubt you are an animal lover, otherwise you would know that animal lovers allow “kisses” between themselves and their pets. It’s a fun, happy thing and you are trying to make it out to be a sexual thing, and that makes me angry. So, take your Christian bullshit out of here or I will block you from posting. I despise hypocritical bible thumpers such as yourself. If you have a complaint about my language simply use the contact form on any page of the website.

        February 12, 2014 at 4:10 am

        So you admit it again: you love animals, you are an animal lover that allows animals to kiss him and at the same time you hate christians. I suggest you hate christians because they say things like, “And you shall not lie with any animal and so make yourself unclean with it, neither shall any woman give herself to an animal to lie with it: it is perversion.” Leviticus 18:23 ESV.

        I am not a christian just a concerned US citizen looking out for poor defenceless animals. I have read that zoophilia is rampant in parts of the US and I can not and will not condone it.

          February 12, 2014 at 9:03 am

          There’s nothing to “admit” you lunatic. Billions of people love their animals, and I am one of them. What I don’t love are psychologically imbalanced nut jobs like you. As to your ridiculous biblical quote who the fuck is “lying” with an animal? I’m beginning to think you’ve just escaped from the local loony bin and have decided to harass rational thinking people with your irrational views. Now, once again, go the fuck away.

              Now who is tossing out insults with no proof at all? We are not using insults, we are describing you accurately as proven by your own posts. Only a total moron would confuse “animal lover” with bestiality. “Methinks she doth protest too much.” Are you projecting your innermost desires and fears about yourself on others?

              Yes, we are encouraging people to care for animals and not abuse them. You are abusing people; something that is far worse.

              Please vomit in your shoes. You are the worst example of a human being anyone is likely to see, ever,

            I am not being obnoxious, it is yourself and Mike who are throwing the insults around like two little boys in the kindergarten playground.

              I am someone who does not tolerate stubborn stupidity well at all. That’s exactly what you are doing, being stubbornly stupid.

              You are demonstrating that you want to equate “animal lover” with bestiality instead of a person that cares for all creatures “great and small” and believes in protecting them and opposing any form of animal abuse.

              You are an obnoxious liar and ethical coward. Plea go away and spread your insane ignorance somewhere else.

    Dear Maddie,
    What country are you from? Are you aware that the term love does not always mean carnal knowledge? I love books. I do not fuck books. I love gardening. I do not fuck my vegetables. I love traveling. I do not fuck the airplane that gets me places. I love my daughter. I do not fuck her. I love my dogs. I do not fuck them. My dogs lick my face and it is not any different to me that the hugs and kisses my daughter gives me. If when I tell you that I love my dogs you automatically jump to the conclusion that I have sex with my dogs perhaps you should contact a therapist or at the very least consult a dictionary. Actually I’ll spare you the 2 seconds it took me to look it up. Definitions posted below. My favorite is the example sentence for #1. I guess in your mind sentence #2 would be “And then they fuck them.”



    1. an intense feeling of deep affection.

    “babies fill parents with intense feelings of love”

    2. a person or thing that one loves.

    “she was the love of his life”

    3.(in tennis, squash, and some other sports) a score of zero; nil.

    “love fifteen”

    1.feel a deep romantic or sexual attachment to (someone).

    “do you love me?”

    I think that we got off on a really bad foot here! Maddie Carn, you say that you are one who respects animals, and you wish them no harm. I think you are misinterpreting the phrase “animal lover” to mean one who sleeps with animals. Having spoken with these guys on the net a lot, I can assure you that that is NOT the case. I think that I can honestly say that we are all “animal lovers” here, without meaning that any of us has any desire whatsoever to have carnal relations with anything other than another human. Because we/they feel it so strongly, the interpretation is that you are being deliberately dense. I certainly hope that that is not the case, and you really are just misunderstanding.
    On the topic, as most of you probably know, I’m a cat person. Cats don’t frequently lick you, although they do sometimes, and it’s a wonderful tickly feeling. I did used to share fudgisicles with my cat, Fargo – share as in I licked it, he licked it, I liked it, etc. you get the idea. My baby brother told me that was really kind of gross, but so be it. is certainly never got sick from it. But I do admit that when I was pregnant, I had my husband’s scoop the litterboxes. That whole eggs in the feces thing with the idea of toxoplasmosis and fetuses and birth defects and whatnot…

      Marsha you are making sense with reasonable, rational, observations, which, unfortunately, these two will refuse to understand. Anyway you put it quite well and that’s exactly the reality of “loving” animals.

    • Denise Motta

      February 12, 2014 at 12:43 pm

      Thanks Marsha, I’ll talk to her. Maddie hates to hear about animal abuse and zoophilia and when she was heard about a website that said it was OK to kiss animals, I guess she just flipped.

      I must say though, some of the people commenting here have been most unfriendly and downright rude. It is probably better if she doesn’t visit here again. Let’s hope Joe doesn’t find out about this!

      • James Smith

        February 12, 2014 at 1:12 pm

        Maddie is a wacko. What if Joe finds out? What’s he going to do? Is that supposed to be a rather thinly veiled threat?

        You call it being rude when we point out that she’s being amazingly ignorant and stubbornly stupid? But she isn’t rude to falsely accuse people of crimes with animals? Oh, the christian double standard again.

        Really, we are just being honest and stating what she has made obvious. Or is that concept too difficult for you?

        • Denise Motta

          February 12, 2014 at 1:46 pm

          Maddie is not a wacko and how should I know what Joe will do?

          Maddie made a simple mistake based on her passion for animal welfare. You, on the other hand, are quite obviously a naturally venomous individual who is more than happy to bully and insult an old lady you know nothing about.

          Why are you are still ranting about christians? Maddie is not religious. She finds those quotes on the internet and uses them to help her communicate to religious people, like Nicole Draper, who you have casually insulted with your comments.

          Get off your high horse, James, you have nothing to be proud of. If I had to guess, I would guess that you have been drinking.

          • James Smith

            February 12, 2014 at 1:51 pm

            Tell me, what did I say that was not true? Every word she posted on here was accusatory, borderline psychotic and astoundingly stupid. Pointing out what she demonstrated with her post is not bullying. It’s being honest. You should try it sometime.

            You’re the one on a “high horse. You ignore direct questions and continue to spout more insulting nonsense without a shred of proof.

            I have far more to be proud of that an lying fool like you will ever have. So STFU and slink away like the slimy little worm you are.

            • Denise Motta

              February 12, 2014 at 2:00 pm

              Every word you posted was mean spirited, unkind and designed to hurt Maddie. You are a most morally objectionable man and I am not surprised that you have been drinking given how you behave. In fact, it would be much, much shameful if you had typed any of this sober.

              • James Smith

                February 12, 2014 at 2:15 pm

                Oh, and Maddie accusing us of bestiality with no proof was not designed to hurt anyone? Again. you are using the double standard. That shows what a mean-spirited, ignorant, unfair person you are.

                Again, you ignore my question, what have I said that was not true>

                Also, you accuse me of drinking when you have no evidence of that or that I even consume alcohol at all. But rational thinking and proving your insults just isn’t your way, is it?

                FYI, bobo, (Portuguese for “fool”) I am sober as I always am. Nor am I a “morally objectionable man. (another unproven insult)

                You, however have demonstrated that you are a liar, and a coward both intellectually and ethically. Evading direct questions and making all those accusations without evidence is solid evidence of that.

                So keep it up. Every post you are making shows that I am right about both of you and you are exactly what I say you are.

                Tell us, do you enjoy showing how ignorant and untruthful yu are in a public forum? Does it give you a cheap thrill to abuse yourself like that?

                Horsehit. You idiots came over here thinking it was some kind of bestiality shit and went on without even looking into older posts to show how much we love and care for animals here. Go screw yourself with this bullshit this was mean and unkind. I can do mean and unkind and you haven’t seen that. Keep this crap up and you will.

        February 12, 2014 at 2:24 pm

        Who is Joe and why should your threat of hope Joe doesn’t find out about this matter to anyone? What is he going to do, write a sternly worded anonymous post on a blog. Oooooh, I am really scared about that threat. Not, really but you go ahead and tell Joe to do a pre emptive go fuck yourself from Jessica. Unless, it’s Joe Hagstrom he is a cool dude. thanks

        • Denise Motta

              February 12, 2014 at 2:49 pm

              Oh, about Joe, you mean? Well, yes, what can he do apart from “write a sternly worded anonymous post on a blog”.

              • Jess

                February 12, 2014 at 2:55 pm

                What is he going to do? Tell us all we are really mean and unkind people and what, you’ll see bolts of lightning, thunder storms, snowfall, zombie apocalypse. Tell me what exactly can Joe do to me, sitting here behind a gate in my living room in California.

        • Michael John Scott

          February 12, 2014 at 3:58 pm

          Yeah. Our Joe is a cool dude indeed!

          Can’t say that or they may start accusing you of being one of them “gheyz” and you know that is worse than bestiality in these morons’ eyes.

            February 12, 2014 at 3:53 pm

    I love all the animals on my hobby farm from our hunting dogs to our horses and no we don’t have sex with any of them that is gross. And I go to church every Sunday and Wednesday, I agree that laying with animals and loving them are two different things. God says to love all living creatures not just humans.

    It isn’t as if any rational person still believes the USA is a free country. Think about it. No-warrant wire taps, indefinite detention of citizens without charges, approval of rendition of prisoners and torture, stop and frisk without probable cause, search and seizure without a warrant, no-knock entry, confiscation and destruction of cameras that might have been used to film police acting illegally, police brutality, police shootings that go without investigation, managed news, and the civil-rights destroying “Patriot” Act.

    Acts of police behaving illegally, with shootings, Tasers, and unwarranted violence now appear almost daily. Rarely are these offenses punished. Most often “an investigation” is claimed, but soon forgotten.

    In addition, the USA, with perhaps 5% of the world population, has 25% of all of the prisoners in the world. That means the USA has the most people in prison of any nation in history. Even by percentage of residents incarcerated, not just sheer numbers. USA is # 1

    Does any of that sound like a free country?

    As Dwight D. Eisenhower said about communism, “It’s like slicing sausage. First they out off a small slice. That isn’t worth fighting over. Then they take another small slice that isn’t worth fighting over. Then another and another. Finally, all you have left is the string and that isn’t worth fighting over, either.”
