Hello, I am a 12 year old Labrador, living in Central London where you have to walk on sizzling streets to reach the parks. My dry old paws were frying on the pavements throughout the recent heatwave. My person bought me some of your wonderful product and I am pleased to say I found it most comforting and it certainly protected my paws and has made them rather soft too. My only problem is I have noticed my person applying it to her heels too, so we will be making a further purchase for the icy winter streets.
I’d never heard of Musher's Secret Pet Paw Protection Wax, until my cousin recommended it as he’d used on both his dogs the previous Winter.
Therefore, I decided to buy it for my two Shetland Sheepdogs to protect their paws during the Winter, (especially when the councils use rock salt when they grit the roads).
This protects your dog’s paws from ice and salt, sand and hot pavements, (when we get a hot Summer, which is rare in this country).
It’s 100% natural wax based cream. I was nicely surprised that it’s not too greasy and has a slight fragrance, (which soon disappears).
The formula contains vitamin E, which helps to moisturize your dog’s paws, helps to heal wounds and helps to keep their paws healthy.
You’ll find it’s very easy to apply to your dog’s pads and in-between their toes, (claws), as that’s were rock salt, ice and sand can linger.
I apply this every time they go out for a walk during the Winter, even more so when there’s rock salt about as the chemical can burn in-between your dog’s toes, (claws). If it gets lodged there and penetrates their skin (as we found our last Winter), they can get a nasty sore which needs a vets attention as it can get infected, (which they need antibiotics for).
Here’s a tip, to stop your dog from even thinking about licking it’s paws after you put it on, put the mushers secret on just before you go out, (we’ve found that works), as it takes their mind of it.
Once you’ve returned from walking your dogs, wipe over their paws and in-between their toes to remove the rock salt, (ice and sand) they might have picked up on their walk. I use a sensitive baby wipe, (which are usually cheaper than dog wipes) and then I use their dog towel to dry their feet.
I’m so glad we found out about this as it really works, (was fantastic during the snow period in December last year), now I wouldn’t be without it, as it’s certainly helped to keep our dog’s paws safe during the cold weather.
I saw a vlog where someone used this on their own cracked heels due to wearing flip flops alot. After looking at the all natural ingredients i decided to give it a go. Wow, it works so well. After years of using all sorts of heel and foot creams this is the only one that has ever worked for me. I now use it daily to keep my feet soft and crack free, great on elbows too, have used it on hubbys dry elbows, worked really well there too.
My poor old mutt was quite badly lame due to the heatwave and hot pavements leaving his paws raw and cracked. I considered several options to solve the problem then saw an ad’ for Musher’s paw wax so got some, from the first application the change was dramatic, he was walking normally again and didn’t seem to be in pain anymore, after a week of applying it every couple days all the cracks and scuffs were gone and his paws are now all smooth and healed. Very happy with this and I’m sure it will come in useful during the cold frosty winter days too.
Bought this product to treat a corn on one of my greyhounds paws. Yes, sighthounds can get corns, and they make them lame. The idea is to protect, soothe and make the skin more plyable. Gently, gradually file the corn down (hard skin only) and eventually manually remove it. It can take weeks, but already I have noticed she is sound on that paw now. The pad skin looks so much better, and the corn has reduced nicely. Brilliant product. So many uses. Visible improvement in days.
I used this in the snow and ice as my cocker spaniel tends to get painful ice balls on and around her paws and she didn't get one with this on. I can imaging it would protect against hot pavements as it claims. The only downside is she slips a lot on my laminate flooring when I use it which isn't great as she has bad hips
The product is easy to use but has a bit of a peppery smell so the dog did try to eat it at first. She is a rescue and doesnt like her paws being touched but once she realises she is getting a bit of a massage she lays down and lets me put it on. Its very soft and easy to use. The jar isnt very big but seems enough to do the job. I have already noticed an improvement in just a matter of days.
I use this alot in winter. I work my dogs and their paws take a hammering during the winter as they negotiate brambles and stingers. This wax actually offers some protection to stingers and it keeps the pads in good condition. I have let others use the was on their dogs who have suffered reactions to nettles and they have seen the benefit in their dogs too. I doesn't protect the pads 100% but the reaction is reduced.
Got a rottie who just splits his pads for a pastime - the vet says there are no such things as weak pads, but we are talking about a dozen split, bleeding pads; until Mushers! YAAY! End of problem, I rub it in - he lies there blissed out - about twice weekly, his pads have lost that dry cracked look and are now silky and supple. LOVE IT! Mickey the rottie says Thank You!
