She was known in Sumeria as ‘The Great Doctoress’ or possibly the Great Dogtoress. Because she never went anywhere without her faithful hound at her heels. ("Heal, boy, heal!")
She was a firm believer, as were many, that dog’s tongues were all you needed in the way of antiseptic. Where do you think the phrase ‘Licking your wounds’ comes from?
Interestingly, modern research has shown that saliva does indeed have medicinal properties and can aid the healing process. Not necessarily dog saliva though. Do not try that at home without expert medical advice and a magic Sumerian dog.
