Do the best you can to wash the burnt paws with soap and cool water. Apply antibacterial cream and cover with a bandage. Change once daily.

Burnt paw pads can result in blisters which could become infected. Wash the paws with soap and water and put antibiotic ointment on, wrap it with guaze, and place a sock over it. You must take him to the Vet to make sure nothing is infected and maybe pain Meds.

I think you should let the dog rest.Most likely as my dog did the dog will lick and heal the wound on his own.If your dog does not lick the wound,Put on an ointment and bandage the wound.The wound will heal if the dog is not too active.

If your dog is crate trained, you can keep him off his feet in the crate for a few days to give the paws time to heal. When you do walk him, keep off of sidewalks, rough surfaces, and any potential hot surfaces, including gravel or rock. Restrict his walks to grassy areas as much as possible until they heal.

Let him rest all he wants and you can put some Aloe on his paws because if he licks off the aloe it wont hurt him because it's a natural plant extract. You can also rub some vitamin E oil on his paws it will help speed the healing process for him.

I would put triple antibiotic ointment on the paws. It may help them heal faster. Try to get him off hot surfaces such as gravel and pavement.

Take him to the Vet. This happened to my dog and now her paws hurt in the winter and summer. It will be worth it in the long run.

Let him rest. You can also apply creams made for paw pad injuries. In the future you can use paw wax, like Musher's Secret, to prevent this from happening again.
