Paw pad injuries can take a long time to heal because of the location. Many vets often do recommend not using bandages because exposure to the air can help speed healing. Others suggest wrapping gauze around it, secured with a bandage during the day when he is more active, and keeping it uncovered at night. If you wrap it, does he try to remove the bandage and does he try to lick at the injury or pretty much leave it alone? Hopefully someone else will have some better suggestions for you.
