People generally fall into one of two camps when it comes to letting your pet’s tongue touch your lips.

One is “give me more,” while the other says, “no thanks.”

While puppy and kitty kisses can be adorable, if you consider where that animal’s tongue has been – their nether region, eating poop-stained grass – the expression of love might not seem so cute anymore.

Moreover, while your fur baby is getting to lick a clean area of your skin, what he’s leaving behind can be life-threatening to the human.

One TikTok user says, “Do you kiss your dog on the mouth? Because if so, it’s time to stop.”

The user, who goes by the handle “medexplained2you,” is a PA (physician’s assistant) who writes the disclaimer on his profile lest anyone be angered later on, “not professional medical advice.”
