Condom munching dog

Jun 29, 2005

Hi! My dog recently chewed up a freshly used condom. The dog then licked me in the face. My question is - is this a way to transmit HIV (my fiance is positive) considering the dog caught me right in the mouth with his tongue (he has a bad habit of doing that!) Strange I know, but I haven't really seen anything like this addressed before. If you have I'm sorry to bug you with it again! Thanks!

Response from Dr. Frascino


A condom-loving canine? Cool!

No worries about Toto giving you some oral after his Trojan munch-a-thon, OK?

You haven't seen this problem addressed before? Gee, I wonder why.

Stay well. Now go give Toto a real bone to chew on.
