volcano Ive done the same on bicycles and motorcycles. Just get the gravel out the wound and keep it clean. Dont let the dog walk on it for a couple days, or limit walking. Every visit I had to the er was a waste for me unless it needs stitches. You can bet the insurance ws getting billed thousands to put some bandaids on me though. Work wouldnt allow me a few days off for recovery unless I made their ins plan overpay thousands.

wolfy dog It doesn't look very serious to me but I am not a vet (disclaimer!!). One of my dogs from the past tore of the entire pad from that same one. It was raw but not bleeding and I knew the vet didn't have anything to suture it to. I decided to leave it and to my amazement the entire pad grew back, never got infected. I may have wrapped it loosely to protect it, don't remember, but that's what I would do now.

Blanketback I swore my head off when I put it on my finger - I had no idea it would sting like that! I don't even know why I'm keeping the stuff because I'll never use it again, lol.

ZoeD1217 I've never used liquid bandage on an animal but I used it once and it burns horribly and smells worse. It might draw more attention to her paw...

volcano Liquid bandage is superglue and it hurts alot when applied. When Apache tore her pads up I sprayed vetricyn and didnt walk her for a couple days. She wouldnt tolerate vet wrap so we left it unbandaged.

MaggieRoseLee I've never used the Liquid bandage so can't comment.

I just did more like pyratemom, keep it covered using a dressing then wrapping it all over with the cling VetWrap stuff and then that white waterproof tape that sticks WICKED good (so make sure to only put it over the vetwrap and not on the fur or you'll have to cut if off.

I did at first using an old sock, but only for a couple days as Pyrate hated the sock. When we went outside I put on a dog boot on that foot for week or so until it healed well enough to not be tender.

pyratemom 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.
