When Your Dog Doesn't Like Shoes as Much as You do
It just broke my heart to take her out for a short walk in the snow she loves to have her limp before we got home because her paws hurt. We also worried about salt sticking to her paws as not all of our neighbors use pet safe salt like we do. If only there was some "invisible boot" we could use on her.
Then my husband found this. Musher's Secret.
We apply just a little right before she goes out and she is SO much happier out in the cold, with no limping when the pavement is super cold. It also prevents those little balls of snow from collecting in and around the paws, causing puddles as they melt in the house OR painful picking them off. Rubbing a little bit up in between the pads prevents this!
It's also great when it's hot out to protect her pads from the warm cement (if it's HOT, we stay off of it) or sand and rough terrain so we have some at home or when visiting family. It also helps keeps insects away from her paws, and is said by customers to be very healing on nicks, scratches and burns
It only takes a little bit so even at $12 for the smaller container it will last for weeks and weeks. Our fur-ends at Chewy.com did not carry the product but we found it easily at a local pet store and it's available on-line.
