How to Prevent Cracked Dog Paws with Bag Balm

Protecting your pet is always a top priority. Preserve your dog’s paws from the harsh, icy weather in winter with Bag Balm. Cold weather is often the primary contributor to the condition of your dog's paws. Ice melt salt and chemicals that cover sidewalks in winter may cause your dog's paws to crack or sting. 

Dogs bear their full weight on their paw pads, making sure their pads are healthy is vital to maintaining a pain-free and healthy pet. According to Yahoo Life! Bag Balm is a dog's best friend for protection against the winter elements. 

Angelica Dimock, DVM, managing shelter veterinarian at Animal Humane Society in Minn. recommends applying Bag Balm to your dog's paws before heading outdoors to protect from cold and ice.

Poor pad health can be easily attributed to the surfaces the dog walks on," Dimock says. "In summertime, the hot sidewalks can burn off the outer protective layer of the pads. In the wintertime, the cold sidewalks can dry out pads leading to uneven layers and cracks."
