Question chewing foot wound help

Hi-
Any suggestions on what to cover his foot with that would take a while for him to chew off? I am thinking its the only way to let it heal all the way.

What is the wound from? Is it from him chewing?

I had a Jack Russell Terrorist...er, terrier... hehe who I rescued and rehabilitated then found her a forever home. When I first got her, she chewed terrible sores into her front paws. It was all nerves.

The local petstore here sells these pads that you wipe over the tops of the feet or wherever they are chewing. I went through a LOT of pads at first (like every 30 mins to hour) but gradually she quit chewing.

I'm not sure what all is in the pads, but the look sort of like wet wipes. They don't have any odor at all, but they supposedly taste horrible. But at the same time, they are supposed to soothe the itching and burning. So between the soothing qualities and the bad taste, it gives the wound a chance to heal.

I would agree with putting him in a cone. Maybe you could apply a little antiseptic ointment and wrap with vet wrap for when you can't watch him in addition to the cone.
