What is 4 Paws Recovery Cream?
Dogs' paws are usually very resistant and tough, but sometimes external factors like cold or heat can cause the surfaces of the pads to become dry and, eventually, cracked.
4 Paws is designed to:
- Penetrate easily into the rough paw skin
- Repair skin damage
- Strengthen the skin and protect it from further injury
Whether it's from hot pavement, rough surfaces, or icy winter conditions, paw pads can become very dry. You don't necessarily want to limit your dog's outdoor activity, and there is no need to if the paws are cared for appropriately. Application of 'protective' emollient ingredients like petreoleum, mineral oil or paraffn may appear beneficial for a short time, but don't assist with actual skin repair, strength or integrity. Additionally, there is mounting concern that these ingredients compromise overall health because they cannot be metabolized once absorbed.
4 Paws contains a unique combination. It contains ingredients to allow penetration into thick, rough, dry skin. And it contains natural botanicals to help knit the skin's cells back together - for mending and recovery. It contains no essential oils, coloring, scent or products that might cause further irritation to dogs.
Regardless of the cause of the dry skin on the paw pads, 4 Paws brings relief and results are apparent within days, with regular application.
What is 4 Paws used for?
Dry, cracked and/or irritated paws pads.
Gently massage cream onto clean paw pads until it has absorbed, covering bottoms and sides of each pad. Apply once daily for moderate dryness. Apply twice daily or more for extreme dryness and cracking.
A Note from our Veterinarian...
Cracking paw pads are generally caused by environmental conditions like burning hot sand or pavement, or icy surfaces that your dog is walking/running on. If your dog's paws become chronically dry and cracked for no apparent reason, consider taking him or her to your vet to assess other potential causes. Sometimes chronically cracking paw pads are a symptom of a health condition or an allergy. Regardless of the reasons behind the dry skin on the paws, try 4 Paws for relief and recovery.
Other things to consider:
- Is your pet exposed to chemicals or salt?
De-icing chemicals and salt on winter roads may aggravate the paw pads and make them drier. Make sure you give your dog's paws a rinse if that is a possibility.
Allergic dermatitis is a condition seen routinely by veterinarians. Possible allergens can be from your dog's food or treats, pollens from weeds, trees or grasses, molds, dust mites or fleas. Sometimes, dogs become suddenly sensitive to things that never bothered them in the past. Sensitivities and allergens can cause the paws to feel itchy and irritated, and your dog may lick and gnaw until the paw pad is bleeding.
