We live in the mountains. We have cinder rocks (small lava rocks), ice and snow. The cinders, ice, snow and drying dirt are very hard on our dog’s paws. They became dried, cracked and sore. We also have a boxer that has a condition called Nasal Hyperkeratosis (noses that look like barnacles are growing on them in crusty layers. The rough dry tissue often cracks open and bleeds).
So I created my Doggy Paw and Nose Butter. It is very healing and provides a layer of protection. The Doggy safe ingredients are Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea butter, Beeswax, Vitamin E, Calendula essential oil, Lavender essential oil.
I find it best to apply to dogs paws at night so it can moisturize and heal while they are inactive. I also like to apply it before they go outside in the ice and snow for a layer of protection.
This butter also works great on humans. It helps heal dry cracked feet.
Do not use if your dog or you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
