Barrier Cream for Dogs Paws
Let's talk about our pet's paws, preparing for the cold season. Winter is coming, and the snow, ice, salt, stones and a number of other things can damage those furry paws during the long, cold winters.
We should consider how important it is to care about our dogs and cats' paws since they have only four paws to carry them through life. During the cold season, the dog's paw pad may dry and sometimes hurt due to the ice, snow, salt, and chemicals used on our streets and sidewalks.
Their noses also can become rough and cracked.
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, taking special care of our best friends, including the cats, with access to outdoor life is always good.
The paw salve is one tool 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: Bee wax, shea butter, coconut oil, calendula infused with sweet almond oil.
Bee wax: This amazing substance comes from worker honey bees. It creates a semi-permeable barrier, which protects the skin on the pads from anything they come into contact with. It contains a natural moisturizer that locks in the moisture.
Coconut oil is a highly saturated oil traditionally made by extracting the oil from raw coconuts or dried coconut kernels. For dogs, paws can be very beneficial and nurturing.
Calendula: A plant extract that has been used throughout history in skin preparations. Calendula is beneficial for dry or damaged skin and promotes the fast healing and regeneration of the skin thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
Sweet almond oil: It is derived from the sweet, edible almonds of the botanical known as Prunus amygdalus var. dulcis, which grows white flowers. An incredibly rich supply of fatty acids and vitamins E and B add more ability to moisturize the pet paw pad skin.
Shea butter comes from the shea butter nuts, native from Africa. It's rich in a number of nutrients, and it not only soothes irritation but also helps boost the skin's recovery process. It's highly moisturizing.
And as you can guess, it's all 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 to complete the paw dog salve to help keep your pet's paw healthy for the season.
Apply directly on the pet's paws before going into the snow and slush. Repeat as required.
It's safe for cats, too!
