Have you ever heard that a dog’s mouthiStock_000013180170XSmall is cleaner than your bathroom or a human’s mouth? Have you ever wondered if it’s true?
Well, there are a lot of things cleaner than a bathroom, especially if you’re talking about a public restroom. Portable restroom trailers, for instance, are more sanitary and safer than a public restroom. And they’re easy to maintain, too. The interior is made of an easy-to-clean material which creates a short and swift cleaning experience. Perhaps the question should be, is a dog’s mouth cleaner than a restroom trailer?
When it comes to our mouths as compared to a dog’s, according to veterinarian Marty Becker, our mouths are indeed cleaner. Take into consideration all the things and places a dog licks. However, that’s not to say that our mouths are completely germ free either. We carry many kinds of bacteria in our mouths, too. The key is that the bacteria that each carries are species specific, “so a staph or a strep for a human is not transmissible to a dog, if you were to kiss it, and vice versa," said Becker. In actuality, you have a higher chance picking up an illness from another human instead. So don’t worry when your best four-legged friend decides to give you a wet sloppy kiss right on the smacker…enjoy the unconditional adoration!
