I personally would probably let it be unless it is getting dirty or he is picking at it, or if it gets oozy or something that looks like an infection might be setting in. Is his skin hot around the wound; does it look swollen at all?

But I'm not there in person, so I'll add that old fail-safe remark...if you're worried about it, you can call your vet and ask what you should do, or if you need to bring him in.
