Seems the one I want is made in Quebec as Vermont n Quebec linked together to make this one. Quebec has the biggest dairy farms in Canada and why they linked together many years ago as I was told. See the photo? Not same ingredients

    The only difference is that the new one also has paraffin= candle wax. Wouldn't you say that's a good thing for paws ? I'm not sure what the impact would be for hot spots... Probably be a bit too occlusive for hot spots so old formula would be better. I would rather use an antibiotic ointment or betadine for hot spots anyway, but that's just me. I actually bought a tin of new formula and I've been applying it using 2 separate cosmetic round pads on Honey's bum and vulvar area if she's been scooting. I also up the fibre if she starts to scoot.

    Scoot usually is a sign of irritation, worms, lump etc... fiber won’t stop scooting. But makes a nice though

    Castor has always had dry paws but they have become much smoother over the last month since he started on a new fatty acid oil. He used to get salmon oil but I wasn't sure it did any good so I bought an oil called Nutrolin. It's from Finland, made from plant oils (no fish) and actually seems to work; Castor's paws are now almost like baby feet, his coat is looking great and he doesn't lick or scratch himself as much as before.


    Isn't nutrolin taken internally?It's not available in Canada. I give my dog something similar- hemp seed oil, flax seed oil, and fish oil all separately.

    Yes, that's right! I give Castor a teaspoon a day on his food. It moisturises him from the inside so no need to put anything directly on his paws.
