Four Paws Paw Guard with Lanolin is a must in winter months

By 

from Canton, OH

Comments about Four Paws Paw Guard with Lanolin:

I use Four Paws Paw Guard with Lanolin in my dogs paws during the winter months. I live in Ohio and we have lots of snow, ice, and bitterly cold days during the winter months. This product protects my dogs paws from the damaging effects of sidewalk salt. The lanolin also keeps his paws soft. And it also seems to keep his paws warmer while he's outside doing his business. I can't imagine not using this during the winter. It only takes a couple of minutes to apply. My dog doesn't mind when I apply this product at all. Actually he seems to enjoy it. Because he gets a little foot massage while it's being applied. I would suggest anyone that likes in an area where salt is used. It is so harsh on dogs paws. I always wiped down my dogs paws when he came inside after a potty trip. .

Quality of Ingredients
Very high quality ingredients. The lanolin is superb!

Side Effects
We haven't had any side effects and I can't see why anyone would. Although I'm sure it's possible.

Paw and Nose Protection

By 

from Hartford, CT

Comments about Four Paws Paw Guard with Lanolin:

I tried a few different 'balm' products for my dog before finding this Four Point brand with Lanolin. My dog gets cracked paws because of an autoimmunity issue, and her nose also needs some extra love because of the same diagnosis. We tried Moosher's on her nose, as well as Vasoline, but wanted something we could use on both, and I didn't want to put these products on her paws. The veterinarian recommended Bag Balm, but a friend had used this product for a short period of time and gave us the tin to try out.

The balm is close to ordorless, and comes in a small tin.It's light tan and goes on clear. It's a little greasy, I have trouble washing the feeling off my hands after applying it to my dog's needy spots, but it seems to be doing the job. I am sure the claim of Lanolin helps the sell, but I just need effective. I always try and keep her from licking at her paws (her first instinct once I am putting something there) for 10 minutes after applying and after that she doesn't seem to notice it, and walks around fine as though it's dried. It's keep the cracking at bay, helped reverse it a bit too, so we'll keep using this.

Healed my dogs paws in no time

By 

from Stroudsburg, PA

Comments about Four Paws Paw Guard with Lanolin:

My dog Jinny's paws were starting to crack terribly. Between the cold winters that turned straight into hot summers, her poor paws were starting to suffer. I wasn't sure what to do about it, but I was recommended by a friend and my vet as well to try using the Four Paws Paw Guard with Lanolin.

I was surprised at how easy it was to apply to my dogs paws without any hassle or mess. I just needed the smallest amount of product to rub into my dogs paws. I did it with my finger, and just rubbed it into her paw pads until they were moisturized without being greasy.

The lanolin protected and coated my dogs paws, because it's more of like a wax. It really helped to heal her paws where they were already cracked, and her paws felt like they were softening up everyday that I applied it.

I used the Four Paws in conjunction with her TheraPaw Boots to ensure that the Lanolin was really sinking into her paws, and to give her paws better protection. Since I've been using the Four Paws everyday her paws don't crack anymore, and have healed very well. I use this all year round now to ensure that her paws don't get damaged.

I really like that the Four Paws is made from an all natural ingredient, and is organic, so I don't have to worry about putting any harmful ingredients on her. This is really a great product.

Quality of Ingredients
The only active ingredient in the Four Paws is Lanolin, which is basically just a wax moisturizer that is used to help cracked and dry skin. It's made from sheep's wool. There's lanolin in the Carmex I use, so if it's safe to put on my mouth, then it's definitely safe to put on my dogs paws.

Side Effects
My dog Jinny did not have any side effects from this. She was fine and it didn't bother her at all. But I do know that if you are allergic to sheep's wool that you can not use lanolin because it can cause rashes, hives, and swelling to your skin.

Slightly Messy But Effective For Cracked Paws

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Four Paws Paw Guard with Lanolin:

In the winter my large breed dogs could care less about the amount of snow that's on the ground; all they want to do is go outside and play. When they get cracked paws from exposure to snow and salt on the ground they limp and whimper but by that time it's too late to take preventative measures to protect their paws. Snow boots were non-effective as they'd fall off or get yanked off in short order.

When I asked my veterinarian what I could use on their paws to help protect them as well as help heal them when cracks developed he gave me a short list of products that he uses personally. Paw Guard was on the list and I found a small local pet store that had it in stock. The nice thing about this is I can apply it to their paws with my finger or press their paw into the tin. They aren't too keen on having this on their paws but after a few days of applying it I usually see great results.

This can be used as a preventative product as well as something that can be applied to cracks or dry spots on paws. The tins are not huge but one 1.75 ounce container lasted me the entire winter. If you are using the paw-to-tin method of applying this you are going to end up wearing out the middle section first; then you'll need to apply with to their paws with a finger.

This can be a little messy if you apply it and they start running around the house but most of the time I put it on their paws when they are laying down and relaxing so it has time to sink in and start rehydrating their paws. I still have a little bit left in the tin from winter but plan on getting another one to use on their paws in the summer. They love to run around and play outside but because they are jumping in and out of the pool all the time their paws tend to get dried out from the chlorine.

Side Effects
Not really a side effect but if you apply this in a thick layer and they start running around the house it causes slippery spots on tile and linoleum flooring.

Four Paws Paw Guard Soothes and Protects

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Four Paws Paw Guard with Lanolin:

Dogs have pads on their paws for protection, but these pads can still become sore, irritated, and cracked depending on conditions. A simple solution to this problem is Four Paws Paw Guard with Lanolin.

Medication Facts and Commentary:

Four Paws Paw Guard with Lanolin is a quick means to protect older dogs and others whose paw pads have become sore or worn- out due to age or due to living conditions. The manufacturer emphasizes that this product is good for dogs’ pads that have become cracked and dried out due to contact with ice, gravel, hard pavement, or other rough surfaces.

Applying Four Paws Paw Guard with Lanolin is as simple as pressing your dog’s paws into the open container or applying some to your fingers and then spreading it on your dog’s paws yourself. It is like adding lotion to dry skin and it does make a difference in a dog’s protective pads, helping to return them to good health.

Some dogs will want to lick this substance from their paws and I was concerned about this when I first applied the treatment. Thankfully, the manufacturer thought about this and made the product organic and safe. If your dog licks it all away, there is nothing to worry about- it will not make your dog sick in any way and you can immediately reapply, if necessary.

Bottom Line Viewpoint:

My bottom line with Four Paws Paw Guard with Lanolin is that it’s a very good product for healing a dog’s dry, cracked paw pads and it makes a noticeable difference. It is offered for a fair price and it can help get your dog’s feet back in shape, ready to handle all that nature can offer.
