Paw-nicure

While we get to put on our shoes to protect our feet, our pups often go au naturale. Whether it be a hiking trip on rough rocks to a sprint along the beach, and even walks on hot pavements, these elements can cause dry, cracked paws, which can be painful for Fido. Here’s five handy paw sticks on the market for those roughed out digits.

An organic balm for gritty paws, Pawstik retails for $9.99 (S$13.60), and is even gentle enough for bunnies too! With healing aloe vera, chamomile, calendula petals, jojoba seed oils, platain and even calming lavender, Fido and his paws will be soothed.

Natural Dog Company

Aptly named the Pawtector, this organic, vegan blend is another cheap option at $4.95 (S$6.75), and is made to ensure a barrier against heat, cold, salt, sand and snow. It even comes with an accompanying product, the Paw Soother, to provide all-round coverage and moisturising effects on dry or damaged paws.
