Protect Paw Pads During Winter Months

National Animal Poison Control Center recommends using dog boots to protect your dogs paw pads from harsh sidewalk salts.  They also suggest using sand or non-clumping kitty litter as an alternative.  They won’t melt ice but do provide safe traction.

You can purchase pet safe sidewalk salt at you local pet stores.

There are also paw pad waxes or balms specifically designed to protect paw pads from snow, ice and salt.  Apply a thin even layer just before going out for a wintery walk. After the walk wipe your dog’s paws with a warm washcloth to remove snow, ice and ice melt. Then apply another layer of balm to soothe any irritation and to keep them from drying out. If you are unable to find paw wax or balm a thin layer of petroleum jelly will also do the trick.
