Saliva helps your dog swallow their food and move the food down the esophagus. Saliva also has lysozyme, an enzyme which has antibacterial qualities. When your dog licks a sore, saliva could have beneficial effects on cuts. It could work to the dogs advantage to keep the cut clean. Unfortunately many dogs just keep licking and the sore never gets the chance to dry and the dog does more damage than good to the wound site.
