Veterinary Medicine

Question: My dog's feet get raw in the winter. What can I do to help him?

Answer: Ice melt can irritate paws, as well as sharp ice, and just the cold. Wash off his feet when he comes in. There are a number of paw waxes that protect the pads in cold weather; we carry Musher's Secret™ and Pad Wax®. We also carry socks with grips on the feet that protect the feet and dog booties. The socks are also great for slippery floors.
