Normally, we should be quite familiar with this when our pets, like dogs or cats, get wounds. They often lick their wounds, right?
So many people assume that when pets lick their wounds, it’s a way for them to self-treat and that saliva helps wounds heal faster. But… is that really true?

So, let’s first see what’s in a dog’s saliva.
In a dog’s saliva, there are indeed substances that can destroy bacteria, such as Streptococcus canis and E. coli, but their effectiveness in wound treatment is minimal and unlikely to have any impact.
Furthermore, a dog’s saliva contains dangerous bacteria such as Gram-Negative Anaerobic Bacteria, which can produce Endotoxin, a toxin that can damage tissues. This may result in the wound becoming more infected than before.
Additionally, frequent licking may lead to Acral Lick Granuloma, a condition where the skin becomes inflamed due to excessive licking, especially in breeds like Labrador retrievers, which are more prone to it.
Lastly, a dog’s saliva can lead to severe complications, even causing infections in the bloodstream.

So, what should you do if your pet has a wound?

If your pet has a wound, first of all, you should prevent them from licking the wound entirely, as it may lead to infections. Use a cone collar or collar to prevent them from reaching the wound, then shave the area around the wound and clean it with MicrocynAH Wound & Skin Care Spray. This spray not only kills bacteria, viruses, fungi, and yeast but also aids in wound healing, allowing the wound to heal quickly without developing drug resistance. It’s safe even if it comes into contact with eyes, ears, nose, mouth, or if ingested. Then, make sure to cover the wound properly and try to prevent your pet from licking it again.

However, if the wound is large, infected, or if you’re not experienced in wound care, it’s best to take your pet to a veterinarian for professional help.
