A bandage to protect it for about a ewek will be a good idea. If the skin is broken you may need to have your vet treat the pad. In the long term if the dog is inclined to wear its pads you can use a Mikki boot to prtect the pads when you go out. There are also other forms of footwear avalable for dogs.
