I was just diagnosed with Mono. Our Shih Tzu loves to lick my face and I was worried that he may catch it from me. Are dogs affected by the disease?
Thanks for your help!

Hi there,
No, I have never heard of mono in a dog. However, when I am very sick, I cuddle my pets but try to encourage them to stay away from my snuzzy nose, etc just cuz.
I hope you get better soon.
