    This $13 Protective Wax Is A Must-Have Product For Any Dog With Paws

    Thousands of pet parents use this stuff to help moisturize paw pads and prevent cracking caused by snow buildup, hot pavements, rock salt, sand burns, and *ruff* terrain. 🐾

    I admit that I'm an overly concerned dog mom; my little pup has me whipped from her pedestal. So you can only imagine how I felt when I saw my furry little baby's paw pads bleeding after a long run outside.

    Frantically texting "SOS" to my friend who's a vet while I browsed the web for remedies to treat torn paw pads, I stumbled upon Musher's Secret Paw Protection Wax. It has truly been a blessing and a game-changer — simply too great of a product to keep it a secret!

    And over 3,000 pet parents trust Musher's Secret, so you can have peace of mind knowing your pup will be in good paws — er, hands — with this stuff.

    Snow, ice, and salt on the ground in the winter can lead to discomfort and ice forming on the fur in between your pet's paw pads. The cold, dry air can also cause their paws to crack and bleed. Applying a thin coat of Musher's can help your pup *break the ice*. If your pets have webbed feet, make sure to get in between their toesies as well!

    Hot pavements can be just as damaging to their paws as cold winter days. Imagine walking on scorching sand on the beach without shoes!

    You might also want to apply Musher's before long walks, hikes, or any other outdoor activities to reduce the chance of your pup's paws getting cut, chaffed, or blistered.

    In addition to being a protectant, Musher's can be used regularly to condition your pet's paws and dry nose for a soft *boop*.

    With the help of vitamin E, Musher's can promote faster healing and protect damaged paw pads from further exposure to irritants:

    Ouch! Blisters, be gone!
