Paw protection in winter weather

Schutz und Pflege für angegriffene und verletzte Pfoten

Many dogs love walks in the snow and frolic. Because more and more paths are gritted, you should check your four-legged friend's paws daily. Often road salt dries out the skin of the pads and makes them crack. Licking can additionally lead to inflammations.

Those who cannot avoid gritted walking paths should bathe their paws in lukewarm water after the walk and then apply paw care cream. This prevents the salt from causing damage and keeps the pads supple. Long tufts of hair between the pads should be cut back, otherwise the snow between and under the pads will clump together to form ice and can cause injury in this way.

If cracks are already present, a Walker Active protects the paw during the next walk. The robust tread sole gives the animal grip even on slippery and stony floors. The breathable mesh material and the practical Velcro closures ensure a high level of wearing comfort.

Heal injured paws with the help of the Walker Care Comfort. This soft, fleece-lined softshell boot prevents the dog from licking the wound, supports healing and reduces the risk of infection.

For minor injuries, the dog socks with a non-slip all-around rubber coating in the front of the sock are also suitable. The robust rubber coating additionally prevents the injured or even old dog from slipping away on slippery floors.

If cracks in the bunion do not heal within a few days or the dog is lame more often, it is advisable to consult a veterinarian.
