It’s not too common that our dogs wear shoes to protect their feet like we do! This leaves your dog open and susceptible to germs, injuries, and illnesses being tracked around by their feet. A paw wash, such as our In Pups We Trust Paw Wash, will help keep your dog happy and healthy. Keep reading to see all that using a paw wash can do for your dog!
Check for Injuries
Using a paw wash helps keep you accountable for checking your dog’s feet for injuries or any other lumps or bumps. When using a paw wash, you have dedicated time to check your dog’s paw pads, nails, and in between their toes to make sure everything is in proper working order and your dog doesn’t have any obvious injuries.
Our paw wash here at In Pups We Trust is even more ideal for use in this case, because it’s all-natural, non-toxic, and formulated by a veterinarian! The formula is anti-bacterial, which can also help keep any cuts or small, minor, injuries safe and clean from infection.
There are MANY diseases that a dog may encounter on their walks. Leptospirosis, parvovirus, and blastomycosis are just a few of the diseases that can be fatal to dogs and are contracted in the environment. By using a paw wash, you can get rid of any germs that your dog picked up when out of your home and easily wash them away without having to carry your dog through the house to the bathtub.
If you pick an anti-bacterial paw wash, you’ll get even more benefits because the paw wash itself will actually kill the bacteria instead of simply washing it away. Your dog’s feet and toes will be happy and healthy, and they won’t accidentally lick their feet and ingest a virus or other disease that could make them ill.
Not only will an anti-bacterial paw wash help prevent your dog from contracting illnesses, but it will help keep you safer, too! Many germs and diseases that don’t necessarily affect our dogs, but are detrimental to human health, may hitch a ride inside on the toes of our dogs. Washing their paws before coming inside will keep your house disease-free!
Wash Away Chemicals and Salt
In the winter, or in any area with roads treated for some reason, our dog’s paws are prone to picking up chemical and salt used to melt the ice on sidewalks and roads. This can burn our dog’s paws, or cause a stomach upset if ingested.
Paw washes will help get rid of the debris that your dog has picked up on their walk, preventing the salt or other chemicals from becoming a larger problem for your dog.
Whatever your need, there are many reasons why a paw wash is a useful purchase. Quick rinses of muddy toes, a way to kill harmful germs, and keeping track of the health of our dog’s feet are just a few of the options! Make sure to check out the In Pups We Trust Paw Wash for an all-natural option that is lick proof and gentle, with a foaming dispenser for easily application, to keep your dog healthy and feeling great!
