Frequently Asked Questions About Dog Paw Balm

If you are browsing around an online dog accessory store, one of the products that you may come across is dog paw balm. Many people do not know exactly what dog paw balm is, even though their pet can benefit from using it. Once you see this product, you may have many questions about it, including when it should be used, what it does, and how to use it. Here are some of the answers to the questions you may have.

A dog paw balm is designed to rehydrate the pads on your dog's paws. Just like our human skin can dry out, so can the pads on your dog's paws. The pads may simply look dry and flakey, or they can actually begin to split open. Dog paw balm should be applied to your dog's paws just like lotion should be applied to the skin. Apply a liberal amount to the pads and rub it in. If the pads immediately absorb all of the balm, rub in a little extra. You want to be able to see a film on the exterior of the pad. For extra dry pads, continue using the balm two times daily until the cracks are beginning to heal. For pads that are slightly dry, apply the balm daily. For maintenance, you can apply the balm every other day.
