Your pet could pass staph infections
Serious staph infections like MRSA can be passed from animals to humans. MRSA is a bacteria that is resistant to many antibiotics, making it difficult to treat. Dogs and cats can carry this bacteria in their mouths and saliva. Now you’re going to need to sit down before I tell you this next one. And I hope you didn’t just eat. A 51-year-old woman in Japan was diagnosed with a staph infection that started in her ear. Doctors determined that her dog infected her when she let her dog lick her stitches from a recent ear surgery. No, just no.
