Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
How long has the wound been present?
How deep is it?
Is it gaping open or lying with its edges in line?
Is it on a part of the pad he is walking on?
Can you take a photo of this? If you can do so and post them online, it will let me see what you are seeing. To post them, you can either use the paper clip on the tool bar. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web address here for me to have a peek.

Thank you,
Since you noted that he has not walked on it for 5 days, can you tell me if it is bandaged or how you have kept him off of it?
How long has it been present if he has reopened it?
Are you seeing any redness or pus from the wound?
Does it have any odor?
