Protect Your Dog’s Feet

Shannon Moore, NCMG Director of Grooming Education, Espree Animal Products

“Baby It’s Cold Outside” is an understatement in most regions in the country right now. While we are busy keeping our beloved pets bundled up for their very quick romp in these frigid temperatures, we sometimes forget about protecting their feet. For my dogs, little booties are not an option as they would not even take a single step while wearing them. I use Espree’s Paw Balm as my “go to” to help protect their feet in the cold temperatures. It also protects their feet from the salt, sand, and harsh chemicals that are put on the roads to help melt ice and snow.

Espree’s Paw Balm forms a dense barrier between the pad of the foot and the extreme conditions outside. It provides the protection needed for a quick romp outside during harsh weather. It conditions the pad of the foot while offering undeniable protection from the outside elements. Before your pet goes outside apply Espree’s Paw Balm, let it absorb into the pad of the foot for a minute or two, and you and your pet are good to go. For application purposes, I keep an old rug by the door and have them stand on it while I quickly apply the Paw Balm. Even when the weather is mild, Paw Balm is good to use on your pet’s pads one to two times each week to help lock in hydration and condition the pads. Paw Balm is a safe, non- toxic, and easy way to protect your dog’s paws.
