    Default Paw moisturizer for Bulldogs like balm or others , recommendations

    I wipe Bruschi s paws everyday with baby wipes after our walkie to keep his paws clean.

    I dont know if baby wipes dry their paws. Is there any balm or cream recommendations like us humans do with skin care that applies to our dogs?

    I ran out of bag balm and still searching for the original. But I know both links are great!

    I haven't tried Musher's Secret yet, but I did order the kit from Natural Dog Company. They have a balm for the paws, and it seems to work okay...

    Eventually I will attempt to make my own. Jan - March is quiet for me...Will play in the kitchen. It’s basically a couple different wax, essential oils.

    Isn't it a bit tricky to put something on the paws (the pad, that is) as it will end up on the floor or the dog will lick it off? I would consider some oil or something that will moisturise the dog from the inside, so to speak.

    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.

    I only use pawsitive FX as even if they lick it, it’s natural n has essential oils. But why I use it because here in the wintertime when you walk your dogs they either use little stones mixed with salt or sand. Also I like their paws a bit thick not too thin either for protection to all weather. Just like our dog sleigh they won’t have too much of anything on their paws so they build a healthy thickness paw to mush... Nyala has normal soft paws but Jake has much thicker paws as he was raised outside. Why it’s important to bring them out in all seasons n not to use them booties or use less... well that’s my opinion.

    Not too hard to make your own either. https://ontariospca.ca/blog/protect-...balm-for-pets/ I made my own 2 years ago but hardly used it since I agree with you- good to toughen up their paws.

    If you want original bag balm you can get it direct from bag balm if you are in USA eg. https://bagbalm.com/collections/all/...oses-hot-spots

    I think bag balm is unique with its hydroxyquinoline combined with the Petrolatum, Lanolin, and Paraffin Wax so it will act as an antiseptic for hot spots. If it's just for paws you can make your own, buy other brands such as Mushers Secret, or use Bag Balm.

    You won't be able to duplicate bag balm unless you have access to hydroxyquinoline.

    No that’s not the original it’s the newer version. But they still make the original one and all unavailable for now. I did speak n email to numerous people. 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
