Dogs Heal Their Wounds by Licking Them
People believe that the saliva of the dog helps them heal themselves from injures. Sadly, that not true. According to science, the act of dogs licking their wounds won’t heal them but can possibly make it worst.
Letting your dog lick their wounds may result in reopening the wounds, warm the spots and even sabotage their sutures from surgeries. More than that, as mentioned before dogs mouth is not that clean and dangerous microbes might get into the dog body via open wounds and cause infection.
