No kissing please!!

You love your animal, so why can’t we give him a kiss? Because of the risk of passing diseases from your pet to you is why we should not be kissing our pets.Pets clean themselves with their tongues as part of their daily routine and putting your mouth next to your pets can pass germs and result in your ill health.

Animals do try to lick your face as it’s their way of showing you affection, although pets love licking you should always wash your hands after petting your dog/cat and children especially should be told about the importance of washing their hands after stroking their pet. Hookworms, roundworms and Staphylococcus aureus can all be transmitted from our pets.
