Should I Let My Dog Lick My Baby?

An interesting question, and one I’ve had to ask myself when bringing our baby home earlier this year. Opinions, and even research, seem to have come to different outcomes. Whilst no one will really argue that a dogs mouth can play host to an array of parasites and bacteria, people easily forget that the extent to which this is true is highly dependent on the dog, and their behaviour. Things like their diet, whether it’s raw meat or dry food, have they been wormed and treated for fleas, or even whether they’ve just been eating something the cat left in the garden, all play a role in the amount of bacteria found in their mouth.
