Dog balm to protect from sand

Hi,

I'm looking for some kind of balm that will protect Mia's paws from the sand. It's not the heat from the sand that agitates the skin between the toes but more the gritty texture I think? plus all the broken shells and rocks. She runs REALLY HARD after the ball.

Would that balm that's used for winters/salt work? Is there anything that's more specific to sand?

I don't think she would like wearing booties and the way she runs (super fast and hard) I don't think the booties could hold up.

Thanks,

Yoshi

You could try Musher's Secret Pet Paw Protection Wax, 60-Gram. This known to protect dog paws against sand aswell as hot pavement and ice and salt.

i'd positively pre-condition the booties -
there are sturdy booties that STAY ON, & they'd be far-better at excluding sand, pebbles, broken shell, the odd stray fish-hook, broken glass, etc, than any ointment.

If U just want to exclude sand, get the disposable stretch type - they're only good for one wearing, but they're cheap.
[I'd want a good sturdy set that would last, myself, with adjustable straps - velcro, elastic loop, ______ .]

the best thing i ever bought my Akita were booties with hydrophilic beads in 'em; they enabled her to walk across gooey tarmac in blazing full sun without cooking the skin off her paw-pads, & on ordinary surfaces, kept her whole body cooler.
The blood circulating over the evaporating water sent cooler blood back into her core on hot days.

It didn't take her long to figure out these things were really a help, & she'd stand waiting for me to put them on at the door!

Any links to what 'leashedForLife' is talking about?

I want something sturdy, too. (For winter + salt).

I would get dog shoes I'm sure you want to keep them for then one use. I know during mushing season and racing that the booties I use which are one time only use wear out. Im switching booties about 10 times just to make sure they don't get sharp ice or hard rocks hurting their paws. I would actual shoes if your going to be using them in just sand that way you have more then one use out of them and not buying new ones every time you want to go out :-):-) And some paw protection is good also the mushers perfect paw and Tender foot are the two I personally use but you can also use petroleum jelly that you would buy for kids :-):-)

Arrow some boot-models



sadly, 'CoolPaws' boots with the water-sucking beads are no longer manufactured.

These are on clearance - 50% off, but in only 2 sizes, Sm & X-Lg -
Ultra Paws Cool dog boots

They have a Kevlar boot with a reflective-foil layer to reduce heat -
Ultra Paws Xtreme Kevlar Dog Boots


these are waterproof with traction soles -

HaveGet & 'Busy Dog' are 2 other name-brands.
