    Happy Tails BowWow Butter Balm...it's for cracked noses and pads. I've never seen anything work better. I actually use it on my own feet and hands, lol. After bathing all day my hands are dry and chapped. I just rub a little dab of it on my hands, and all better!!

    I just put something about this on my other post what are the odds.

    About the dog I am sitting scraped some skin off the pads at his wrists and upon further inspection his pads are really dry so I am using some skin works and I also have some foot cream from Nature's Speciality that I use on me and my dog.

    I imagineThey certainly do hurt even more than our dry cracked hands as they have to continue to walk on their painful cracked pads and they usually will begin to lick at them alot and pick at the webbing between thier toes and such.

    How about putting Bag Balm on his feet? Farmers put it on cows udders to keep them soft. Maybe you could put it on at bedtime and scratch his belly till he falls asleep so he will not try to lick it off. Or there is an actual product for dogs feet (cant remember the name of it) that they use on sled dogs feet to keep them moisturized and protected from cracking.
