Much as I tried to prevent it, Chagall's itchy paw pad split and started to bleed this morning. Question: what's the best way to treat and manage the wound? I will go out later to try to find a doggy boot since the sock isn't doing it. I will also have to use the Elizabethan collar, I realize, but for now I need to know how to prevent the wound from getting infected (it's on the bottom of his foot beneath one of his toes--poor baby!) and how to help it heal? I'll call the vet first thing Monday morning. Until then, any advice would be most welcome!
