Paw injuries are tough and take a while to heal. I have found if you get the pup to soak his foot in salt water it really helps the healing. You can put one paw in a bowl or bucket or even just fill the bathtub a bit and have him stand in there. I usually continue walking my dogs unless they are in real discomfort but I put a bootie on the injured paw.
