Pamper Your Little Dog's Paws.
Just like your feet, your little doggy's paw could use a little pampering, especially during the winter months. Exposure to cold weather can cause your pup's paw pads to dry out and crack, which is no fun for doggy.
So what do you pamper those paws with? We recommend Dog Fashion Spa Nose & Paw Moisturizer. This sweet scented moisturizer is formulated with organic grapeseed oil, safflower oil, wheat germ oil, sesame oil and vitamins A, D, B5 and E. This gentle combination of natural ingredients helps keep your little furry friend's paws hydrated to prevent painful cracks. And you can use it on your pup's nose, too.
Dog Fashion Spa Nose & Paw Moisturizer comes in a lipstick-size bottle with a convenient roll-on applicator. To use it, roll a little on one of your pup's paws and gently massage the moisturizer into doggy's paw pads, making sure to get up in between the toes. Repeat for each paw.
For those of you who live in areas that get regular snow and ice, it's a good idea to rinse your pup's paws with warm water after walks to remove any rock salt or de-icer from his or her paws. Not only can de-icers potentially burn your pup's paws, they can also be toxic if your dog licks his or her paws and ingests the chemicals.
Dog Fashion Spa Paw & Nose Moisturizer is $12.00 + $2.95 shipping. You can order it right here.
