Health Warning: Don't Smooch The Pooch

Posted: Updated:

Be careful about showering your dog with too much affection.

It turns out that sharing a smooch with man's best friend can be harmful to everyone involved.

A new report finds that master and pet can exchange harmful mouth bacteria.

It can result in gum disease and tooth decay for both humans and dogs.

That's because the bacteria found in a dog's mouth is far more harmful to humans and vice-versa for the animal.
