Hi again! Just wondering what everyone in northern climes does to remove road salt for your pup's paws. We just got a big snow dump here in Ontario, and today was the first day taking Pickles out since the storm. other dog walkers kept warning us on our walk about the salt, probably because we didn't have booties on his feet. As soon as we got home, I rinsed his paws and belly with warm water in the tub. This is what I do every time he encounters salt in the winter.
Is this enough? Should I try the booties, or are they a waste of cash, like my dog owning friends say? Should I also consider moisterizing his pads? If so, is there a natural alternative to the $17 paw wax they sell at my local dog shop? What about stuff like coconut oil?
