Dogs can get rock salt, ice, and chemical ice treatments caught in their pawpads. To minimize damage to his/her paws, wipe them with a warm cloth when he/she comes inside. It is always a good idea to have a natural and safe anti bacterial cleanser made specifically for dogs. This will also keep her from licking the salt off his/her feet, which could cause an inflammation of his/her digestive tract. The Paw Sani-Scrub works great to kill germs and bacteria after a walk or playing outside. I highly recommend the Paw Sani-Scrub &  it is also nice to use before any service. We use it during our pedicures & keep it in stock yearly.
