Why aren't you carefully monitoring the areas you go before you let your dog loose there? My last dog ran along in all kinds of state forests, beaches, everywhere with me when I went horseback riding for hours daily and went everywhere with me and never got hurt once except for when he ignored me one time and my horse stepped on him.
My current dog goes everywhere with me too and only gets occasional minor cuts from playing too rough with his dog buddies. That's once or twice a year I'll see a tiny scab, never anything bad enough to go to a vet or need antibiotics for.
If your dog is getting that seriously hurt that often then you need to make your hikes and camping trips safer for your dog, who you're responsible for, or be a daredevil alone and leave the poor dog at home where it'll be safe.
Sorry to be judgmental but you should never let your dog walk anywhere near broken glass!
