Barrier Cream for Your Dog's Paws

Let’s talk about our pet’s paws as we prepare for the cold season. Winter is coming with snow, ice, salt, stones and a number of other things that can damage those furry paws during the long, cold winters.

We should think about how important it is to care for our dogs and cat’s paws since they have only four paws to carry them through life. During the cold season, the ice, snow, salt and chemicals used on our streets and sidewalks can cause a dog’s paw pad to become dry and sometimes painful.

Their noses also can become rough and cracked. Consequently, these problems need special care to prevent irritation and make them soft again. Anything from antifreeze to salt will not only irritate the pet’s skin but it is also quite likely that they will lick their paws after a walk and the ingestion of such chemicals can be harmful. Pets that spend most of their time indoors tend to have sensitive skin. Therefore it is always good to take special care of our best friends, including the cats that have access to outdoor life.

Paw salve is one tool that every pet owner should know about and have in their everyday pet kit.

Check out the premium ingredients and benefits of the Nature’s Pet Paw Salve.

Ingredients: Beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, calendula infused in sweet almond oil.

Some benefits:

Bees wax: This amazing substance comes from worker honey bees. It creates a semi-permeable barrier which protects the skin on a pet’s paw pads from anything they come into contact with. Additionally, it also contains a natural moisturizer that locks in the moisture.

Coconut oil: Is a highly saturated oil that is traditionally made by extracting the oil from raw coconuts or dried coconut kernels. Specifically, this oil can be very beneficial and nurturing for dog paws.

Calendula: A plant extract which has been used throughout history in skin preparations. Calendula is beneficial for dry or damaged skin and it also promotes the fast healing and regeneration of the skin thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.

Sweet almond oil: An oil that is derived from the sweet, edible almonds of the botanical known as Prunus amygdalus var. dulcis, which grows white flowers. It contains an incredibly rich supply of fatty acids and vitamin E and vitamin B which adds more ability to moisturize a pet’s paw pad skin.

Shea butter: It comes from the shea butter nuts which are native to Africa. It is rich in a number of nutrients and it not only soothes irritation but it also helps to boost the recovery process of the skin as well while being highly moisturizing.

*And as you can guess, it’s the same for their noses!

*It’s a good choice for dog owners who are conscious consumers and prefer all-natural local products and now you can see how the paw dog salve can help keep your pet’s paws healthy for the season.

Apply directly on the pet's paws before going out into the snow and slush. Repeat as required.

It’s safe for cats too!
