Hi, first time posting here, maybe try some aloe. Even if he licks it it won't hurt him, just keep reapplying. It should stop the burn and also heal it. Goodluck with your pooch, aren't they wonderful!

At this point it's probably too late to stop the burn. That should have been done right after the dog stepped into the concrete. You should first quickly flush the area with lots of water and then pour on vinegar or a vinegar water combination to stop the chemical burn that was occuring.

For a dog w/ concrete burns on its paws: Call a vet & ask them what to do. If you assure them the burns are not severe they will probably advise you over the telephone.

Don't put anything on them that you wouldn't want your dog to eat. And let your dog's paws heal. You might want to get him a set of dog booties to protect his paws until they heal (and then use them in the future for hot concrete), but don't leave the booties on. The air needs to circulate. Only put them on for exercise times.

And check with your vet. You don't want his paws infected.

Aloe Vera Gel? Vitamin E oil from Vitamin E capsules..
Do not walk your dog for awhile so the paws can heal. Only for going to the bathroom until your dog is healed.
Consider getting leather boots for your dog if the dog must walk long distances on hot pavement.
