|We've been getting so much sun lately, even Astrid's toesies have been basking in it.|

Our Tip of the Day:
Walks, potty breaks, and any and all contact with concrete and the outdoor elements can leave your dog's paw pads less than soft and smooth. If your dog's paw pads are dry and/or cracked, though, it's not necessarily advisable to apply human lotion to them, as this could possibly soften the paw pads too much and thereby lead to more damage. However, it is important to moisturize your dog's paw pads if they are showing signs of dryness and cracking. In some cases, a little petroleum jelly may do the trick. But, there are also moisturizers specifically created for dogs and their paw pads. Many veterinary offices, pet stores, and online vendors carry such products. Of course, if you're concerned about your dog's paw pads and how to moisturize them, be sure to consult your veterinarian.
