A 63-year-old man in Germany has died after contracting a rare infection when he was licked by his dog .

This particular man’s infection was caused by capnocytophaga canimorsus, its a bacterium that is commonly found in the mouths of dogs and cats. It isn’t transmitted to humans very often. Nonetheless, its kind of scary and sad that our beloved furry friends have this and it can spread. Just remember its incredibly rare.
