When Pyrate stepped on glass and cut his paw pad I cleaned it and also soaked it in Epsom Salts to help it heal faster. Of course he wouldn't sit with his foot in the water so I sat with him laying down and used a sponge, putting the sponge in the water and then letting it rest on the paw pad until it cooled, then redipping. I think it helped it heal faster that way, not to mention he always enjoyed the attention.
