Musher's Secret Paw Protection (1 lb) is a dense barrier wax that forms a breathable bond with your dog's paws. Developed in Canada for use with sledding dogs, it provides protection even in the most extreme conditions. Perfect for dogs who don't like boots! Made from 100% safe and natural waxes, Musher's Secret won't stain carpets, is non-toxic, and is easy to use. The semi-permeable shield is absorbed into the paws, allowing perspiration to escape through the toes. Excellent for preventing snowballing and saltburn on your dog's toes in the winter and protects paws against sandburn and hot asphalt in summer. Apply a small amount on and in-between your dog's toes. If snowballing re-occurs, just reapply. Wipe off excess after use. Also can be used for protection and soothing relief from fly bitten ears, open sores, cracked toes, nicks, scratches, and burns. Just apply a small amount to the affected area as needed. Musher's has no healing properties but used over a cleaned wound, will keep out dirt and speed the healing process. Don't forget the human factor: Use Musher's Secret on your cheeks and hands to prevent windburn.
