Dry or Cracked Paw Pads
Causes: The paw pad is covered by thick leathery skin and allows the dog to sweat. If the pad stays soft and pliable it will keep from becoming dry and cracked. Cracking can be caused by numerous environmental conditions such as extreme weather; icy cold conditions, extended periods on cement, humid dry areas, or items that can puncture the pad such as rocks, stickers or cactus. Espree’s Paw Balm can be used safely every day to keep the pads soft. Paw Balm can also be used on elbows of dogs that are dry and cracked as well.
