I may sound uneducated...

I may sound uneducated regarding this but please can you let me know if a person can get hiv/aids from a dog/animal who licks a wound on someone’s leg and calves from its saliva, blood, semen and other body fluids?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had blood? Have you used any medication for it?

No blood running or coming out of wound as it’s a crusty scab now but even if it wasn’t crusty and open with no blood?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about the wound?

No just a minor cut from a metal draw and have put ointment on it and it was way before dog licked wound

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No that’s it as I’m just worried

There is no way that you can contract HIV this way as dogs/animals do not carry the HIV virus. I hope that helps.

Ok so not from dog blood or saliva or semen or other fluids then right ? Because they don’t carry it at all ,

That is correct. Not from dogs at all.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
