Really? And how do you explain my dog's paw injury taking months to heal because of his obsessive licking? and it healing right away once I stopped him from bothering it? I have worked for a vet and we had to deal with this problem over and over, that's why Elizabethan collars and bitter apple spray were invented. Yes, a dog's wound may perhaps heal faster if the dog licks it once or twice and the injury is insignificant, but have a dog mess with it like my dog did and you will end up with a bloody mess on a DAILY basis. Please educate yourself, tongues and saliva are not sterile as once believed, please read this article (written by a vet) before resorting to making offensive comments: Articles - Stop Dog Licking Paws - Dinovite, Inc.
