Default Injury to foot, what do you think? (Graphic photo)

Hey guys... Fleetwood messed up his foot over a week ago, and I'm on the fence about taking him in to have it looked at. This happened Thanksgiving, so a week and a half ago. We hiked, biked, and walked, and when we got back to the car, i noticed his foot was bleeding--- a LOT. When I got home, I put pressure on it and when the bleeding stopped, I wrapped it. I changed the bandage every 8 hours or so for about 4 days, then started to let it air out, then left it uncovered all the time.

The wound(s) itself has not changed much since that day, you can see new growth but the wound is not shrinking. The day it happened I called my vet and explained it to her, and gave me clavamox which he's been on. It has prevented infection.

But it's just not really closing up. So, vet? Wound care advice?
