Ok, thank you. I love my dogs, but was more concerned about the kids getting licked by my dog who had the bat in his mouth. I didn't know if the bat saliva could be transferred that way to a human, since no one was bitten or scratched. I don't have any idea how long the bat had been dead. My dogs are trained bird dogs. Trained to retrieve, not chew on. So, the bat was looking pretty un-messed with other than my dogs slobber on it.
Thank you. I was not as worried about my dogs as the kids. I didn't know if the dead bat's saliva had gotten on my dogs tongue, if that could then be transferred to a human if they were licked. Rare, I know, but still. I am just trying to be safe. My dogs are up to date on all shots, and no one was bit, scratched, etc, by my dog. Just a possible lick while playing and petting.
I think I have just been so worried because of reading different opinions. When you think about your child being in danger or others kids being in danger, then it hits a panic button in me.
