I'm not sure who else to ask besides my MH friends, so here goes (this may be a REALLY stupid question, so don't flame me if it is;-)...
I have a pretty bad case of strep-throat at the moment, and I've been really careful about steering clear of my wife so I don't pass it along to her (been taking antibiotics since yesterday evening, but the symptoms persist).
Question: Is it possible that I'll pass strep-throat along to my dogs? Like I said, I've been very careful around my wife, but the dogs have been all over me (face licking, etc).
That being said, even if THEY can't get my strep-throat, can they pass the virus along to my wife through their saliva? (IE: I have strep, they kiss me, the virus is now on their lips, they kiss my wife and pass it along to her)
Sorry is this is a fundamentally stupid question... it's just never come up before, as neither my wife nor I have ever had strep-throat.
