Tongues are great at healing themselves. Make sure the dog has foods with little or no salt since the salt will burn the raw part of the tongue. Depending on the cut it could take a few days to a few weeks.

Even when a tongue is cut almost all the way off, like the tip of it, it does not need to be stitched. It WILL heal itself.

God made the tongue to heal itself. Maybe He wanted to make sure we had the ability to say I love you and other kind things all the time.

This is a question for your veterinarian. A simple phone call should get your answer, but I'm thinking there is no way to put stitches in a dogs tongue.
