| | 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!
