Dogs are born with incredibly smooth and sensitive paw pads meant for walking through nature, not concrete sidewalks. Contact with harsh surfaces creates a lot of wear and tear, making them rough and scratchy. These harsh surfaces can be very drying, causing paws to crack and peel – which is very painful for pets. PawTection helps to guard against the drying and damaging effects of the elements and lock in moisture.
DIRECTIONS | For no-mess application stick, simply uncap, twist up from the bottom, and glide our protective balm directly over your dog’s paw pads. Paws will be slick directly after application so it is advised to allow time for it to dry. Best applied before going outdoors.
DISTRACTION | Distractions are key! Using treats (peanut butter works great!), applying right before mealtime, or following with a belly rub are great distractions to allow time for the product to settle into the paws!
TIP | For the most pawsome results, use in conjunction with our sister product Paw Soother - Paw Soother heals existing damage and dryness to make paws smooth and soft.
WHAT USES IS PAWTECTOR RECOMMENDED FOR?
PawTector will provide healing benefits as well as prevent damage from the following:
- - HOT surfaces such as: pavement, sidewalks, gravel, rocks, sand, stone, concrete, decks, etc.
- - Harsh elements such as: salt, ice, rough terrain, extreme temperatures, etc.
- - Helps to reduces effects of contact with allergens, like grass, pollen, or mold.
PawTector creates a protective barrier while also locking in moisture and helping prevent drying and damage.
WHAT IF MY DOG LICKS IT OFF?:
Natural Dog Company products are 100% natural, safe and edible. Our products will still work even if most of it is licked off. Though, for best results, we advise using distractions. Give your dog a raw bone to chew on, a yummy treat, dinner, or play with them for a few minutes until the carrier oils have had a chance to work it’s magic. We hear peanut butter works great!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PAW SOOTHER AND PAWTECTOR?
PawTector is used to prevent damage, while Paw Soother is used to heal existing damage. PawTector is a natural wax blend, so it provides a nourishing barrier between the paw and harsh surfaces and conditions such as hot pavement, sand, salt, ice, and snow. Paw Soother is a butter blend meant to smooth, soften, moisturize and heal dry, damaged, peeling, and cracked paw pads. Think: PawTector before going outside, Paw Soother before bed. Both have amazing collaborating qualities – making them the pawfect team!
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I APPLY PAWTECTOR?
For best results, use PawTector before going outside. Reapply periodically when exposed to harsh conditions such as ice and snow and especially really hot pavement. Dogs feel pain on their paws!
