Does your dog have a dry nose or cracked dog paws? I bet you are trying to find natural remedies to help with your dog’s dry nose and rough dog paws. The first thing I always recommend is to check your dog’s diet.
Dogs (cats and people, too!) need a diet with plenty of moisture to ensure organs receive enough moisture to function properly. Skin is our biggest organ, which includes a dog’s nose and paw pads. Lack of moisture in a dog’s diet can lead to a dry dog nose and dry, rough paws. A dog with dry paws, nose, and coat may also have a Yin Deficiency. Yin Deficiency basically means a being is too hot, and does not have enough coolness or moisture in their body. Increasing Yin tonics added to the right foods and herbs can help rectify this problem.
However, a dog’s environment can also lead to a cracked dog nose and cracked paws. Once a species-appropriate diet is addressed, you can apply a natural moisturizer to your dog’s paws and nose to help bring moisture back into his body and to add a layer of protection to help prevent damage from the elements.
Luckily, my friends at 4-Legger are to the rescue! Protect and soothe your dog’s nose and paws with their Certified Organic Healing Balm for Dog Nose and Paw Pads. 4-Legger’s dog healing balm is non-toxic and USDA certified organic. The dog balm is loaded with natural healing and moisturizing ingredients, specifically chosen for their nourishing properties.
The organic hemp oil is rich in omega fatty acids and provides anti-inflammatory properties. Organic shea butter is also an anti-inflammatory, and helps provide and retain moisture. As a bonus, organic shea butter is a natural sunscreen and helps heal damaged skin. The organic beeswax is a natural antibacterial and forms a protective barrier on your dog’s nose and paw pads, which helps hold in the moisture while also protecting against environmental conditions.
Certified Organic Healing Balm for Dog Nose and Paw Pad Ingredients: Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Rosemary Extract, Organic Calendula Extract, Organic St. John’s Wort, Organic Beeswax, Natural Vitamin E (Tocopherol)
Dexter’s nose and paw pads are in pretty good shape but not perfect, and I certainly appreciate the protective aspect of 4-Legger’s healing balm. I applied the paw and nose balm to Dexter’s nose and pads twice a day. I just placed a dab of the balm on my finger and rubbed it on Dexter’s nose and pads.
The healing balm absorbed quickly, but I did place toddler socks on Dexter’s feet to help prevent too much licking. Dexter loves the taste and wanted to lick it off even before I had it all on. I provided him with a bully stick after applying the balm, so he would focus on chewing his stick instead of taking off his socks and licking his feet. Luckily all the ingredients are safe and non-toxic, and since the balm absorbs easily, the healing action gets to work quickly.
As you can see from Dexter’s before and after pictures, after only six days of using 4-Legger Certified Organic Healing Balm for Dog Nose and Paw Pads, his paw pads are looking healthier. Because Dexter’s paws and nose were in pretty good shape to begin with, there wasn’t a dramatic change. I try to stay as proactive as I can in Dexter’s health to keep him in tip-top shape. That said, I will be adding 4-Legger’s healing balm to Dexter’s weekly regimen to aid in protection and moisture.
The healing balm is also good for hot spots, skin conditions, wound healing, and bug bites, so it has a place in Dexter’s dog first aid kit. As an extra bonus, the balm is a natural dog sunscreen of SPF 15, so I will be using it once the sun finds its way back to Ohio! 😉
