As I have become more aware of all the unnecessary additives into everyday I products I use, I also started paying attention to anything I put on Dexie. Dogs are very prone to skin issues, allergies, etc and by limiting chemicals or other harsh ingredients placed in or on their bodies gives them a better chance to eliminate these issues. Thus, I set out to find natural dog products that are not only effective, but wholesome too.
l learned about the Natural Dog Company through Instagram of all places (I swear half the time I spend on there is looking at incredible dog photography). The company’s before & after photos of snouts and paws being healed was quite remarkable and then to learn that they use only natural ingredients, I was definitely intrigued.
The Natural Dog Company only uses organic, vegan and all-natural ingredients throughout their entire product line. For example, their Snout Soother contains organic hempseed oil, organic shea nut butter, organic coconut oil, organic grape seed oil, organic jojoba oil, kukui nut oil, candelilla wax, natural vitamin E, chamomile and rosemary extract. That’s it! Not one ingredient that we can’t pronounce or would be harmful to you or your pet. For that matter, I actually apply some on my cuticles each time I’m done putting some on Dexie’s snout.
I would say the only “negative” with applying the Snout Soother, Paw Soother or Pawtector is that Dexie wants to immediately lick it off because it smells and tastes so good! I would guess that’s due to the coconut oil because any time I apply it on myself, she follows me around the house trying to lick it off my arms. (Was that TMI?!?!) The company says to distract them with some peanut butter on top of the paws so that it has at least a minute or so to dry before they realize it’s on. I’ll have to try that next time!
Let’s quickly chat about the Pawtector because I really do love this product for Dexie. Being that we go on a lot of walks each and every day and it’s often quite hot out by me, she’ll tend to get some dry and cracked paw pads. I simply apply this goodness and it works at creating a soothing protective base against the hot pavement outside. If you live in a region where it snows, this is a great product to put on your pup’s paws before heading out in the snow or where they may come across salt that’s been laid down. It’s made up of organic mango butter, organic rice bran oil, organic sunflower oil, organic carnauba wax, sunflower wax, candelilla wax, natural vitamin E, ylang ylang, benzoin, lavender and rosemary.
Side note — I should try applying this on my heels at night!
