What treatment can I provide to my dog's injured foot pad?

My dog went for a walk in the woods, and came back with scrapes and cuts on his foot pads. How can I help him?

You can put neosporine on his pad and wrap it with cotton or gauze. On top of that you can put vet wrap or duct tape. You should also remove any part of the pad that may be hanging off with sharp sciccors if it is just hanging there. He also needs to stay off of it.

Pad wounds on dogs are common. First you will want to wash the pad with betadine, then treat with anti-biotic ointment.
