Summer is finally here, and that means it's time to put on some shorts and get the pup out of the house! Summer is the perfect season to go exploring with your best friend, take a walk through town, or simply hit up the local park. There's nothing better than taking a leisurely stroll through the city with a nice cold drink in hand. The only downside to summer is figuring out how to beat the heat.
Unlike humans, dogs don't usually wear footwear to protect them from the hot pavement. Pet parents often forget, accidentally causing their pup some pain. Dog's can suffer from mild to extreme damage to their pads, due to walking on hot pavement or concrete. This often results in dryness, cracks, or open sores, which can lead to risk of infection or worse. Not to mention discomfort!
Thankfully, there are some great products available to pet parents in order to save their pup's paws.
World of Angus's Dog Balm is fantastic solution to sore paws, made from organic, natural ingredients. Our Dog Balm is designed to soothe dry and irritated skin, as well as heal dry and cracked paws. The Dog Balm is designed with your dog in mind, meaning it's perfectly safe and edible for dogs who love to lick.
The Dog Balm is also certified fair trade and organic!
So, what's it made of?
Our Dog Balm is made from a few ingredients that you might recognize on some of your own labels. Shea butter, olive oil, and beeswax are combined, along with some healing herbs, to create the ultimately healthy paw protector. Each ingredient has multiple benefits for your dog's health.
Here they are!
Shea butter is packed with vitamin E and A for a speedy recovery. This ingredient promotes the healing of irritated skin, and quickens the recovery process using fatty acids. This form of fat helps keep skin elastic and healthy, protecting it from future damage.
Shea butter is a healthy form of fat that can benefit your dog's diet as well. So, there's no need to worry if your dog happens to snack on some.
Beeswax helps form a protective layer on your dog's skin, acting as a barrier between his paws and the hot ground. Beeswax is thick while still allowing your dog's skin to breathe, making it perfect for pad protection.
Beeswax acts as an anti-inflammatory, aiding your dog in healing from sore or swollen paws.
Stellaria Media is a seasonal plant, often used as a cooling agent in herbal remedies. This flower not only smells great, but contains nutrients that help fight itchiness and irritation of the skin.
Stellaria Media is used in our Dog Balm for it's soothing properties.
