MASTIFF BOO BOO BUTTER HERBAL BALM FOR YOUR MASTIFF'S ITCHY SKIN IRRITATIONS
Your Mastiff is probably the epitome of the phrase Gentle Giant. Even though their ancestors were truly canine gladiators, our modern day Mastiffs have a more genteel nature. Our Mastiff BOO BOO BUTTER soothes and nourishes your big dog's random skin discomforts…naturally.
Mastiff BOO BOO BUTTER is the perfect go-to balm for skin issues that need extra TLC, but not a trip to the vet; crusty ear edges, scrapes, scratches, rashes, bug bites, itchy spots, tail bangs from wagging that big long tail. I can't fix the wine glasses your Mastiff's tail knocked off the coffee table, but BOO BOO BUTTER can help the dents in his tail!
People often ask about BOO BOO BUTTER and if it is good for hot spots…yep, BOO BOO BUTTER is wonderful for hots spots…AFTER they dry up. Don't use during the ugly gooey stage, but as soon as the hot spot is dry, use BOO BOO BUTTER liberally.
USING BOO BOO BUTTER ON YOUR MASTIFF
Your Mastiff may be a little bit upset or stressed from having an itchy spot, scrape or random ouch. These gentle dogs will keep their stiff upper lip, as required by their English heritage, but you can tell they are uncomfortable.
I know, I know, your Mastiff is the sweetest dog on earth and wouldn't hurt a fly, BUT you will be messing with an area that is bothering him. If you have any doubt about how receptive he will be to having it messed with, make it a two person job. Safety first, of course.
Gently clean the area as best you can before applying BOO BOO BUTTER. Ply your dog with treats before, during and after application. Some people cover the area, but I have found that draws your dog's focus to the boo boo even more.
Some people do the dab and dash where they dab the BOO BOO BUTTER on and that's it. Like pulling the duct tape off the hostage's mouth quickly, uh, not that I ever did that in real life, I promise! Other people prefer to sit with their dogs and nurture them, taking it slow and easy and gently applying the BOO BOO BUTTER. Your call, you know what works for you and your dog.
Remember "kiss it and make it better?" We are sending a kiss for your dog's boo boo in every application.
Gotta say it: Seek veterinarian care if your dog needs it. These directions are not a replacement for veterinarian advice.

SHEA BUTTER is known for its ability to moisturize skin and to help retain the elasticity of skin. Shea butter has also been known to help protect the skin against the damaging effects of the sun while repairing cellular degeneration. Our shea butter is refined and deodorized without the use of harsh chemicals, allowing the shea butter to keep its amazing healing properties.
COCOA SEED BUTTER softens at body temperature and adds a rich, creamy, thick consistency to our butters. Note: There is none of the active ingredient in dark chocolate in the Cocoa Seed Butter we use. So, no harm to your precious dog!
ALMOND OIL is best known for its ability to soften, soothe, and re-condition the skin. It made from raw almond kernels and exceptionally rich in fatty acids.
AVOCADO OIL is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A, D and E, plus, avocados can provide skin with deep moisture. The avocado oil penetrates the skin but is also thick enough to serve as a protective barrier.
COCONUT OIL is a renowned general moisturizing oil and serves as a protective layer, helping to retain the moisture in your skin. It is great for inflamed and irritated skin, and those with skin sensitivities.
CASTOR OIL is a hard, shiny oil that acts as a “barrier agent and protective medium against harsh conditions and extremes.” Note: There is none of the properties of the ricin that has been in the news (and Breaking Bad). The process that makes it oil eliminates that possibility.
BEESWAX is a wonderful substance secreted by worker honeybees. Beeswax has a higher melting temperature, so it helps the various butters keep their shape and ship better
OLIVE OIL plumps and moisturizes nose tissue with a combo of vitamin E and A. Dry, itchy skin is also often relieved by using olive oil.
NEEM OIL Ancient Indian medicinal oil, Anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral + High level of antioxidants & carotenoids
ARGAN OIL Ancient Indian medicinal oil, Anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral + High level of antioxidants & carotenoids

COMFREY OIL General healing agent, Contains binding tannins for quick healing and Contains allentoin - connective tissue stimulant
ST. JOHN’S WORT OIL Relieves inflammation and promotes healing, often used topically to treat bruises, burns, insect bites and scabies
ESSENTIAL OILS We use a light dash of essential oils in the lightly scented version, more for the energetic properties rather than the scent, as we respect our dog’s sensitive sense of smell. The oils used are; Cedarwood for grounding, Cypress for connection to the earth and Lavender for stress reduction.
SAFE FOR YOUR DOGS AND OURS My very un-legally worded official disclaimer: If you Google a bit you'll find histrionic website articles about "fill in the blank with virtually anything" being bad for you, your dog, the environment and baby unicorns. There are NO active ingredients in our products.BOO BOO BUTTER won't hurt your dog if they lick some off or each the whole tin. That said, they don't need the calories or all that concentrated fat, so put it away!
- Of course, there is the very slight possibility of an individual dog having an individual reaction to an individual ingredient. If your dog has any symptoms of irritation etc. after using any of our products, stop using them.
