It might say spefically on the bottle/container. What exactly did you get?
Oh make sure you moniter him until the solution dries completely so he doesn't lick it.

I've used it many times in the past on dogs, many others do too. Cut pads are not uncommon. Once dried, it's not toxic. Can be a salvation in the field, and I usually have a tube handy.

Ive never really used crazy glue before (in the context of closing cuts), I didn't know it turned non toxic, thanks for letting me know.

One thing to keep in mind is that sealing a cut that has pus is a bad idea, whether the pus is from infection or a foreign body reaction sealing it will likely cause pain and further damage.

It can be super expensive but it's really handy to have around.
The instructions said to just apply directly to the area, which I did. There is a website that goes over the benefits of soaking your dog's paws (regardless of cuts/wounds with the diluted mixture in a tub or a bucket just to cleanse and get rid of any small particles and toxins from lawns, gravel, etc. so that is why I was unsure. I will probably use this in the future for paw soaks after hiking since I'll have so much left over.

Thanks everyone for all your help. I'll be watching it closely.

He doesn't lick it constantly but a few times a day
Could I use tea tree oil?
I would have it checked by the vet. Don't just close up wounds because you can close the dirt and bacteria in the wound especially if the dog wont let you get a good look at it. If you close up the wrong wound it can pool puss behind the closure and cause problems. Some wounds need to stay open to drain. I use healing clay for these type of wounds because it cleans and helps heal. It also forms its own bandage when it dries. If they lick it off it is not harmful , you can use it inside and out.
