How to care for your dog's paw pads
The pads of your dog perform several important functions and must be protected. Don't take them for granted.
The function of the paw pads
Their primary function is to act as shock absorbers to protect your dog's bones and joints. They create a barrier between the dog's paws and dangerous elements such as ice and hot asphalt and they are essential for balance and mobility.
In addition, the paw pads contain scent and sweat glands that are crucial for when the dog marks territory. Given the significant role they play, it is important to protect the paw pads from drying out and cracking.
