The company does use some carbs and grains such as millet and sweet potato, but only those that are gluten-free and high in dietary fiber. In addition, many of the formulas include probiotics and chelated minerals for better digestion and mineral absorption.

Protect those paws: {PawTector}

6da3e05bb58deb5aa47f1417172aedef
PawTector is a all-natural wax based blend. PawTector is specially formulated to protect soft and delicate paw pads against the elements, such as heat, cold, sand, salt, and snow. PawTector acts as a nourishing barrier against the elements for precious paw pads. For no-mess application, unscrew the cap, twist the bottom up, and glide the product directly over your dog’s paw pads.
Dogs are born with incredibly smooth paw pads. It’s all of the wear and tear your dog’s paws undergo that makes them rough to the touch. Imagine if you walked around without shoes all day. Your feet need an extra layer of protection, which is why we wear shoes. PawTector provides the layer of protection your dog needs for their paws, either on the sand, snow, warm asphalt, or wherever your dog enjoys exploring most.71a821bbbaf974f7653ae413d7b8184f

Does your dog like to lick their paws? PawTector is made with 100% safe and carefully sourced vegan ingredients. This company takes the health and wellbeing of your dog very seriously, meaning there are no harmful ingredients in any of these natural dog products.

If your doggy’s paws are not soft to the touch, you will want to first apply the sister product, Paw Soother. Paw Soother is specially formulated to heal already damaged paw pads.

Paw Soother and PawTector work best as a team to heal and protect your dog’s sensitive paw pads. The majority of Paw Soother’s ingredients are selected for their healing and soothing properties. Dogs that have rough, dry, or damaged paw pads need Paw Soother to heal and develop soft, healthy paws.

Once your dog’s paw pads are soft as new leather they will need the added protection of PawTector to retain this new smooth quality. While Paw Tector is incredibly nourishing, the majority of PawTector’s ingredients are selected to act as a barrier for healthy paws against sand, heat, snow, and other elements regularly encountered by curious canines.

Pair the healing strength of Paw Soother with the protective barrier provided by PawTector, and your dog will have the nicest paws in town! Plus, even if your dog decides to lick their paws and consume some, they will be just fine.

Also try the Snout Soother that is perfect for those dry, cracked snouts.

Snout Soother: Your Pup will thank you

A dog’s nose is highly sensitive and can become very painful when their tissues are dry, chapped or cracked.
No pet owner wants to see his or her pet in pain or discomfort and Natural Dog Snout Soother can come to their rescue. This nose balm for dogs is the perfect blend of 100% all natural nourishing, healing and moisturizing ingredients. The soothing balm can be applied to a dog’s nose as a preventative measure for dryness or cracking or it can be used to treat painful cracking and dryness that has already occurred.

Snout Soother is to dogs what Chapstick is to people. If you ask just about any American family what they use for chapped lips, they will show you their Chapstick. Now dog owners have their own product they can apply to their furry member’s nose!

Be wary of other products that contain fragrance – natural or not. ‘Snout Soother’ is fragrance free. Humans loves fragrance but dogs do not! Their extreme senses would smell garbage or other unmentionables. So, if you want a product that your dog won’t turn his nose up literally, try Snout Soother. Your dog will thank you!bb092ad185fcbe45b31ba3d391a763f3
