Make sure to take good care of your dog’s paws during the winter months. Chemicals and salts can really do a number as they are absorbed by your pet’s pads.
Taking your dog in to the groomer to have the hair between their toes trimmed will help to ensure that ice and salt don’t stick. After walks outside, make sure to thoroughly clean your dog’s pads with a warm washcloth.
We also highly recommend Musher’s Secret, a paw balm that provides a breathable wax barrier for your dog’s paws, prevents ice from sticking and adds moisture.
