Rough paws

This forum is for dog lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your dog.

Russell's paw pads are really rough. Is it safe to try to make the soft again with lotion? How do you cure rough paws??

My vet suggested a product called Bag Balm for Storm's rough paw pads. It helped immensely.

Most grocery stores/pharmacies etc. sell Bag Balm. Lots of humans use it, too, so you can find it wherever you buy lotion. (The container has a cow pattern on it, I think.)

I have really rough paw pads, too. Mom didn't know if she should do anything about it or not! Is it a big problem? Should we be concerned?

I got Bag Balm at Walmart... A lot of pet stores have it too.
However, it didn't help my dog's paws AT ALL even though we tried it for a long time! I also tried aloe and also vitamin e liquid as suggested by my vet but those didn't help much either. They might work for you...

You can also find paw cream. I have one called Protecta-Pad, it worked great for me! There's also one called Bow Wow Butter Balm that's supposed to be good.

I don't know if it is a concern mingus. But Russell is an active dog and he wears his paws out sometimes.. and he's not even a year old yet.. I'd rather he's still hae his soft puppy paw still. BOL!

Well its hard to get something guaranteed to work unless you have used it on your pet before, because ALL dogs are different smile

I've heard that Burt's Bees works well, too. I've never put anything on our dogs' feet because (this is just my opinion) it seems that it'd be better to have some roughness so they don't get messed up on hikes. Plus Zeus likes to try to eat my Burt's Bees, and I don't want him gnawing on his paws.

Yes, the protecta-pad cream is great. U can order it online at chinworld.com Just click on health on the right and then scroll down. It costs $6.09! I first found it for my chinchilla's feet but it is awesome.
