chipped shell

my dog got a hold of my turtle and he chipped its shell a lot in a few places i see what seems to me to be blood. the chips aren't too deep not even half an inch but i am concerned about what i should do. he is still walking around as quickly and with as much vigor as always. what should i do to help his shell

It's not the shell you should be worried about, but what got into your animal's body through the wound. You don't want it to close over before you've had it cleaned out thoroughly by a vet.
