Why your dog needs Paw Care
Paw hardening and keratinisation can lead to unexpected problems
As a result of daily walks on asphalt and chemical additives in flooring, dogs' paw pads can become hardened and calloused. These hardened paw pads are slippery and can cause joint problems, slipped disc and even fractures from falls.
Be careful of chapped paw pads in senior dogs
As they get older, paw pads can develop a thick layer of dead skin and become white and desiccated. If left untreated, these cracks can lead to bleeding and infection from bacteria.
Slippery flooring can have a negative effect on skeletal formation.
Dry paw pads can be slippery and have a negative effect on skeletal formation.
