Sending lots of hugs to Pep! How about toddler socks? I use them a lot with foot and ankle injuries. Might do the trick!


Poor guy!

If it doesn't get dirty and it's not a large wound, it may do even better uncovered. Wounds tend to heal faster with air circulation. We do epsom salt soaks also, it's been recommended to us by a vet and seems to keep infections away. If he's licking too much you may need to get those elizabethan collars to keep him away from it cause he could make it larger if he's very persistent. There's other types of collars out there too for this but I haven't tried them so I can't help too much.


I hope his foot heals quickly!
