My babies pads get rough, well not to rough as they are indoors all the time. But still a little, dogs need moisture to right? ;-) So has anyone used Paw balm and what are your thoughts on it? I found an organic one that says it is safe incase they lick.
You can use Bag Balm. I got some here in Quebec for 9.99, for 10 ounces, it feels like vaseline. Apparently Shania Twain uses it on her face.
Bag Balm is a salve originally intended to soothe irritation on cows' udders. Although the product only mentions use "For chapped conditions and superficial abrasions" it used as a treatment for chapped and irritated skin on humans and can be found in drug stores and ski resorts. It has also gained popularity as a post-tattoo skin soother.
Bag Balm is made by the Dairy Association Co. in Lyndonville, Vermont and Rock Island, Quebec. The product is known for its characteristic 10 oz green tins featuring a cow's head and red clovers on the lid. It has been in production since 1899.
The active ingredients of Bag Balm are 8-hydroxyquinoline sulfate 0.3% (antiseptic) in a petrolatum and lanolin base.
I have never heard of that product! I will look into it. I live in Florida so it is not due to snow or ice, just from running around on the cool deck. The pads seem to be rough to me when I am petting their paws. I wanted something to smoothe them out, ya know like we get chapped or rough hands..we put on Nivea or something. LOL Ok so maybe my babies are bit spoiled. I just wanted to see if this stuff works and is it safe.
