Paw Protection Against Sidewalk Salt

Posted on Posted in Pet Care

paw protectionDid you know that salt or other chemical ice/snow melters used on sidewalks can cause a low grade burn, or irritation to your dogs paws?

Avoid the irritation and potential visit to the vet and pick yourself up Musher’s Secret, otherwise known as Musher’s Wax.  Musher’s is non-toxic wax that’s used for sledding dogs to keep their paws coated, and it provides good paw protection against the salted sidewalks.

When you get home, it’s also a good idea to wipe your dogs paws off with baby wipes. If you notice your dog’s pads (underside of paws) are irritated, the best thing to do is go to your veterinarian for treatment.
