My dog's paw pad tore off what should I do?

I was playing street hockey with my dog, just shooting a tennis ball around for him to fetch. Towards the end I noticed he was shuffling on his paws a little, but still wanted to play. I eventually walked him home and then noticed that he had actually licked off pieces of his center foot pad on all four paws. He seems ok, theres no blood, and when I apply pressure to the "new" pad left from where the old fell off, he doesn’t retract his paw or seem to mind. I noticed some people said I should use Epsom salt, but that is not an option. What should I do?

    I would wrap them up. If it doesn’t heal soon or gets worse, visit a vet.

    He’ll be just fine. An infection will just form and your dog will be in so much pain!
