Can dogs spread mono/strep? For example, if you are sick and you kiss your dog on its head and then someone else pets him?

In brief: DOG/ STREP THROAT

Yes even though dogs do not get stept tonsillitis, but they can carry the strep bacteria and pass on to other humans.
So if you have strep throat you should not kiss the dog till it clears up.
