Can you a imagine a world where you never wore shoes? Ouch! Harsh weather conditions (extreme heat or cold) can cause your cat or dog to get dry/cracked paws. We rub this on our students' paws (always making sure to get in those in-between-the-pads areas) whenever there is salt on the snowy ground, or when the pavement starts to boil. All natural and non-toxic Paw Wax is made by Canadian company Eco-Pup and contains sweet almond oil, shea butter, coconut oil and beeswax.
