If you're anything like me, you treat your dog as a member of the family. A dog is a companion who we are charged with caring for, and it's important to think about their health in a similar way that you would consider the health of any family member.
I know when I see that my dog is uncomfortable, I want to try to solve the problem right away. When I am uncomfortable, my first reaction is to look into a basic natural remedy to help solve the problem. So, when my dog is experiencing discomfort, I have the same approach: research natural and homeopathic remedies first.
Our dogs live active lives: hiking through rough rocks and terrain, exploring the mountains, swimming in the river, and even walking on concrete and asphalt to the grocery store. Their pads put up with a lot, and especially in harsh conditions like the heat of summer or during cold winters, a dog's pads can become dry and cracked, just like our heels can.
There are so many natural ingredients that can help soothe dry paws and skin, but unfortunately a lot of major companies use chemical ingredients in their products. There's the common rule of thumb: if you can't pronounce it, you probably shouldn't be using it on your body! This is especially true since we know our pets have a tendency to lick everything, which is a huge reason we advocate natural remedies.
We love using Bumblebee Pet Company Paw Balm on our dog's pads before and after a day of adventuring outside. The ingredients are all natural and absorb quickly into the pad for near immediate hydration and relief. Even if the product is licked off before it soaks in, the ingredients are 100% lick friendly and are perfectly safe for your dog.
Our Paw Balm is made from a blend of ingredients, here is more information about the properties of the ingredients we use. In the Paw Balm recipe, we use Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Almond Oil, Vitamin E, and Nettles and Goldenseal Root Oil. Combined, these ingredients are soothing, hydrating, and healing for your dog's dry pads.
