What would your feet feel like if you walked barefoot all day? Most likely not the best! Your dog's paws are no different. 

In the hot summer months surfaces such as asphalt roads, concrete and play areas get very hot. This can cause damage and discomfort to your dog’s paws. 

Other extreme weather conditions like snow and ice can be just as damaging to paws as road grit and salt can cause pads to become dry, cracked and uncomfortable.

What can you do to help? A balm like WashBar's Kanuka + Repair Paw Balm is an amazing way to soothe, moisturize and repair minor cracks.

It's made with Kanuka oil, known as a natural antiseptic & anti-inflammatory, and Copaiba oil, known as a natural anti-haemorrhagic, to help stop bleeding and weeping and to speed up healing of minor wounds.

WashBar Paw Balm is simple to use. Put a little in your hand or on your fingers and rub gently onto paws.  Allow to absorb.  For best results use daily. You can feel confident knowing every last ingredient that goes into WashBar Paw Balm is completely safe, if your dog licks it off, just reapply.
