A salt deficiency seems really unlikely in that salt deficiencies tend to be immediately life threatening. Have you considered a cone or something to keep the second dog from licking the first? you can't let that go on if it's hurting the first dog.

From a training perspective, you want to train "leave it", though training a very new adoptee is a bit hard. It takes time for a dog to feel comfortable enough to learn, so right now you may want to stick with management, separating the dogs or using a cone or something, and redirection, calling the dog to you, popping a toy in his mouth, something like that.
