PAW BUTTER FOR DRY DOG PAWS
ALL NATURAL TREATMENT FOR YOUR DOG’S DRY, CRACKED, ROUGH PAWS
Paw pads cushion and protect your dog’s paws and act like mini-shock absorbers. Plus, their legs are shorter than ours, which means those paws hit the ground a lot more often than our feet do. Think how many steps a Pomeranian takes to keep up with a 6’4″ person!
Of course, our dog’s paws do need a certain amount of “toughness” to them. But rough dog paws that scratch when they jump on your legs are not necessary for their trotting comfort. (Yeah, my unruly dogs jump up on my legs – oh well).
PAW BUTTER HELPS YOUR DOG’S PAWS BE MORE COMFORTABLE – FOR YOU AND YOUR DOG
That is why a dog paw treatment like PAW BUTTER will be an indispensable part of your dog’s healthy routine.
PAW BUTTER is handcrafted by my crew and me – Kathy, right here in far northern Minnesota from organic and natural shea butter, beeswax, castor oil, avocado oil, almond oil, cocoa seed butter, coconut oil, olive oil, plus a rich infusion of St. John’s Wort Oil, Calendula Oil, Comfrey Oil, a dash of essential oils, and a LOT of LOVE. Every item is tucked into a gift bag and sent to your dog with the best of healing intentions
DRY ROUGH DOG PAWS FAQS
Your dog’s paw pads are strong and tough, but they still need paw-pampering! Just as wearing Lady Gaga-ish shoes with five inch heels would be brutal for us (I cannot imagine), trotting beside you on hot pavement or through snow and ice will brutalize your dog’s paws. City sidewalks wreak havoc on your dog’s paw pads. In the winter the salt and chemicals used to remove ice are harsh on your dog’s paws and in the summer sidewalks are HOT!
As a Blissful Dog mom or dad what can you do to keep your dog’s feet happy? Every couple of days look each pad over and ensure there are no areas of concern (cracked, bleeding, suspicious bumps) or anything stuck in the pad. Carefully push on the pad and see if there is a reaction. It may take a few times of doing this to determine what is “normal” for your dog.
HOW TO APPLY PAW BUTTER®
- Tin – Massage a bit appropriate for their size paw pads into the pads
- Tube – Dab onto paw pads and if you wish to, massage it in
- Apply 2-3x a day for 2-3 days until paws improve
- Then as needed for maintenance (1-3x weekly on average)
DISTRACT & DIVERT
- To keep your dog from licking PAW BUTTER off before it can get its work done try the following
- Give a cookie or treat before and after application (added benefit – they soon associate PAW BUTTER with yummy treats)
- Feed dinner (extra yummy)
- Play a game
ODDS & ENDS
- PAW BUTTER in the tin and the tube is same product, just different containers
- PAW BUTTER will do no harm if your dog licks some and swallows it (or eats the whole tin)
PAWSITIVELY PERFECT PAW TIPS
Pedi Time: Click, click, click means your dog’s nails need trimming. Yep, if you can hear them, they are too long. Have your vet or groomer show you how to do this, if you are unsure. If nail trimming is one of those battle royale events, let the groomer or vet do it. Just remember to keep them trimmed!
Paw Peering: Look between toes for anything that should not be there: thorns, rocks, glass, gum, anything undesired. Do this at least weekly, if possible.
Moisturizing Moment: Wipe their paw pads off using a wet wipe, one of those way cool plunger things (why did I not think of THAT?). Then apply Paw Butter™ using the twist-tube applicator or if you prefer the tins, using a dab on your fingers. We recommend you give them a treat or toy to distract them from licking. Even if they DO lick it off, some will be absorbed and it will not hurt them. If you have a “licker” then we suggest you rub it in more. Tip: if you have carpeting or nice furniture (I envy you-kidding, but only a little), allow PAW BUTTER to absorb for 10-15 minutes before allowing them access.
Deep Tissue Paw Massage: When you have time, give your dog more of a massage. Start with the big pad, rubbing PAW BUTTER deeply into their pads and move onto each toe pad. This is great to do while you sit and Netflix binge (I know you do it).
Apply First Aid: Little cuts (less than 1/2 inch or so-use common sense) can be cleaned with an antiseptic pad. Bigger cuts or one that is bleeding a lot need to be seen by a vet. Boo Boo Butter can be used for after care. I gotta say it: Seek veterinarian advice if your dog has an injury to their paw.
Snip and Trim: Trim paw hair regularly to avoid painful matting. Simply comb hair out, especially from between the toes, and trim even with the pads. Note: Not everyone feels dogs need to have the hair trimmed, this is your personal preference. AND if you are not comfortable doing this, have your groomer do it.
Hot! Hot! = Dry Dog Paws: Touch your forearm to the sidewalk to see if it is too hot for your dog to walk comfortably on. If it hurts you, it will probably hurt them. Hot sidewalks and sand can burn! Your dog wants to be with you and will suffer to do so. For minor burns, clean with antibacterial cleanser, for serious burns, visit your vet immediately.
Froze Toes: We call it froze toes when the dogs dash outside in Minnesota winter (science fiction cold) and stop and hold a foot up within moments. Snow crystals can freeze inside their paw pads and does that hurt! Plus, chemicals and salt can be toxic! After outdoor walks, wash your dog’s paws in warm water to rinse away salt and chemicals. You may consider a pair of booties for your cold-weather friend.
An Ounce of Paw-vention: Keep it clean and clear. Make sure there are no nails, broken glass or anything that can cut your dog’s paw pads when you go on a walk. Remember – if you wouldn’t like to walk on it barefoot, neither will your dog!
Build Up: Just as we need to build up to a new exercise regimen, so do our dogs. Do not take them for a long walk across rocky terrain with carpet soft paws. Think walking barefoot across sharp rocks. Paw Empathy.
By the way, we all know that technically we are referring to the PADS of your dog’s feet when we discuss PAW BUTTER. PAD BUTTER just did not have the same ring to it, so bear with my taking a bit of an artistic liberty with the terminology.
