I would try to soak the pad in some warm salt water. Usually dogs are pretty cooperative with this (after the initial dunk) as it feels better. If your dog isn't cooperative then you can make the salt water in the bath tub and then have him stand in it.

Wrapping is a good idea but make sure not to wrap the wound to tightly. I don't think stitches are usually done on a paw pad. Is the wound like a puncture or more of a slice?
