HE has been limping for a couple of days at first then it started to get real bad. I looked at his left dew claw and it is a little red and all scratched.

Gently rinse the dew claw area 2 times a day with warm water. Allow it to dry. Use triple antibiotic ointment. Hold the dog for 5 -1 0 minutes to allow the ointment time to work. It is ok if the dog licks the remaining ointment. If there is no improvement in 3 days take him to the vet. He could have a pulled muscle, joint or shoulder injury. Keeping him in a crate to prevent movement will help any injury to heal.
