Dog Paw Health Tips: 7 Things You Need To Know


Care for Paw Pads

dog paw healthThe pads absorb the bulk of abuse that dogs deal out to their paws.

These are the rough patches on the bottom of your dog’s feet.

Rougher because they’ve been toughened by walking on dirt, wood floors, cement, and all the other surfaces dogs come across.

But just because they’ve toughened up doesn’t mean they aren’t vulnerable.


Some dogs are prone to dry paw pads, which can lead to cracking and bleeding.

This can be treated with lotion, though it’s important to use a cream formulated for dogs rather than humans.

It’s also important to make sure the lotion is absorbed, so the dog doesn’t lick it off.
