Cant ease the pain without pain killers from vet but i would wash it in what the vet has perscribed and put on human savlon then cover with vet wrap or a human sock so he doesnt lick it off and also to protect it from dirt i did it with my old dog with an infection in between her paw pad it really works xx

In addition to the other post, you might PETfection Paw Cream on the area. It is 100% Organic and Non Toxic; it doesn't contain any chemicals or additives that could make them worse. I find it to heal up any dryness, cuts, etc. quickly and it will help block out infection. I hope this helps; best of luck!
