Pawsh Dogs FREE Pawdicure throughout February
Winter can be a tough time for a dog’s paws.
Prevent weather-related paw pad injuries by following some basic tips and the use of products designed for paw protection.
Preventing Paw Pad Injuries
One of the biggest threats to healthy paw pads is the salt used to melt ice on driveways, roads and paths. Prolonged contact can lead to cracks & or chemical burns on dog paws.
- Try to avoid walking in surfaces that have been heavily treated with salt and de-icers.
- Wash dogs paws after walking with warm water (prevents ingestion too)
- Apply paw balm regularly
Another common cause of sore paws during the cold winter months are the ice balls which form between the pads and toes of hairy-footed dog.
Let Pawsh Dogs keep the hair between the toes trimmed. Fluffy feet may be cute, but the hair traps ice and salt. We recommend trimming the hair so that it is level and even with the foot/toe pads, or even a bit shorter.
Here at Pawsh Dogs every dog is treated to WildWash paw balm after their groom.
