please suggest something to put on irritated paws
My little dog absolutely LOVES going walking but the snow and salt at the park have taken it's toll on her little paws, we go to the park DAILY. The pads are fine, but between them is irritated and she's licking...of course, it's what they do. She has been given a spray by the vet which is just not doing anything at all. I'm a bit annoyed with the vet as they want to suggest it's food allergies...it is NOT food allergies, she was just fine until one day they had tons of salt and it was really wet at the walking trail, it was that day it began. Then of course the licking perpetuates the problem.
I always wash her paws when we get home for her walk. I have begun a daily Epsom salt soak too which is helping.
What's good to put on them? I need something I can put on them that is safe because she WILL lick it. I really don't want to keep socks on her paws...HA! That's what we are doing now, socks to keep from licking.
