cracked paws and booties

I have a 2-year old English Spaniel that I've been training to hunt this
year. We hunted pretty hard for two days about two weeks ago, and
feeling badly, I gave him a little rest. We went out for the first time
yesterday and the crusty snow appeared to be too much for him. His pads
are pretty sore, not bloody, but he's definitely favoring his right
front and left rear. My question is two-fold: 1. What is the best
first aid for sore, cracked paws? 2. I've been researching booties
on-line... are they truly worth it? Do they work in snow? What is your
experience with dogs accepting them?


Thanks so much


Liz
