I would only personally give it if he was in pain. If he is, have at it. Arnica isn't necessarily going to do a whole lot for scarring IME. What I would do (again....this is me) is use a calendula wash on the site and once it's starting to scab use tamanu oil to reduce scarring. I'd also make certain he was getting adequate zinc and vitamin E in his diet for cellular repair and regeneration.
