My dog there to the left, he has cut his feet sooo many times. I have taken him to the vet when he needed stitches-almost cut off his entire pad. I just use a steril pad with ointment on the wound, then i use guaze wrap, then vet tape. If he is picking at it, I add a sock with vet tape wrapped around his leg over the sock to keep the sock on-that is for bad cuts though. Just keep it clean and dry, if its not bleeding all over.
