Remember, dog and cat mouths are dirty, just like ours!

Witness:

PetMD- "Pet Parent Nearly Dies From Dog Licks."

National Post (Toronto)- "The surprising cause of a Toronto man's death from septic shock: A bite on the thumb from his pet cat."

We are REALLY cautious with cat bites, because cat teeth are long and sharp and can introduce bacteria almost like an injection- they require immediate first aid and, depending on the severity of the bite, often a visit to the doctor.
