An ounce of prevention, they say, is worth a pound of cure. One way to protect your dogs paws is with booties or
socks. Another measure is to use de-icing product deemed safe for dogs and to wash off any salt or chemicals after a
walk.


If your dog already has rough, dry paws you can treat them with a specially formulated product such as Paw Butter

After a few treatments you’ll start to see a difference. Treat you and your dog to a mini spa day!
