Ouch! Poor Cole. I am very sorry, I don't have any experience with cuts except on horses. Have you called your vet for advice?
Karma skinned her pads at the cottage, when we foolishly threw her frisbee on our walk along a roughly paved road. She was limping for several days. We just let nature take its course.
To prevent infection, I would put Tea Tree Oil on the cut. This is an excellent natural antiseptic and antifungal agent. If it is really bad, you may want to wrap it with gauze and vetwrap when he needs to walk around. It probably will heal better when exposed to air though, so I would take off the bandages at night or when he is just lazing around the house. Use Tea Tree Oil on the bandage to keep him from chewing it. Dogs hate the smell of it!
First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.
