We recently moved to Arizona and I was looking for a good paw balm for my pup to help prevent cracked pawpads. After a walk, I rub this on his paws and for weeks afterwards his paws are soft. I got this one in particular because I knew he would try to lick it off. Which he does. Unfortunately I left it on the table (so the cat knocked it on the floor) and Han Solo decided to eat it all. Thankfully the ingredients are natural and safe for dogs so he only had some weird stools!
