Dog Dexter

Dexter, my male dog dachshund, has a health problem

My dog has an anal gland infection. Been to the vets and have been five antibiotics and anti inflametreis so everything is good. Just wondering though if us humans can catch it? For example he liked the dry blood that cane off it on the sofa and then liked my dads leg.

The answer is NOT. You can be safe. The problem of Dexter can not transmit somebody.

It is important to know that the blood is the excellent food for bacteria. So that, it is good to clean the blood of the sofa.Some bacteria can grow up and if your dad's legs have an opened wound, it might be dangerous.

Kind regards,
