Paw Wax vs Dog Boots

Seeing a dog limping through the snow or salt is heartbreaking. 

Your dog’s exposure to snow, hot surfaces, salt and snowmelt chemicals, lawn care chemicals, and all the gross stuff they step in on their walks could mean dry and cracked pads or paws laden with toxic substances that hurt and can be ingested. Winter walks can become downright dangerous when the chemicals from ice-melting agents are licked off of bare paws. Exposure to allergens, bacteria, viruses, and fungus can also cause chapped and itchy paws. You can always get Pawz dog boots for your dog to make those walks bearable, but Paw Wax is sometimes what you need for saving the day!

A brief overview of Pawz Max Wax

Available in 60g and 200g jars, Pawz Max Wax provides maximum conditioning to dry or cracked paws or as a nose salve. MaxWax is great for year-round use to protect your dog’s paws against snow, ice build-up, pesticides, chemical burn from ice melt, pavement, and sand. As the Pawz Max Wax is made from human-grade beeswax, Vitamin E, and lanolin, it is lickable and safely digestible. Pawz MaxWax doesn’t just work wonders for healthy paws every day of the year, it can also help chapped noses and elbows. And you humans can use it too? I do.

 

Pawz Max Wax- What’s inside? 

Max Wax is an all-natural human-grade paw wax that is applied in small amounts as a paw conditioner or nose salve or liberally on and between the pads before heading outdoors. The best part about the wax is it forms a protective hydrophobic barrier between your dog and the wet ground. And if your pooch has a habit of licking his paws, you don’t need to worry about it because MaxWax is non-toxic.

So, what exactly is inside Max Wax? When it comes to Max Wax, the list of ingredients is quite short- which is a good sign. Max Wax contains:

  • Beeswax: Beeswax can work to form a protective barrier against irritants and the environment. The best part about Beeswax is its breathability. Unlike other lubricants that form a sticky layer of coverings on the skin, beeswax allows the skin to breathe while keeping it hydrated. In addition, it also has mild anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that can keep your dog’s paws protected from germs and pathogens. 
  • Lanolin: This is another wax secreted by glands in the skin of wool-bearing animals – particularly sheep. In MaxWax lanolin is there to retain moisture in the skin.
  • Mineral Jelly: The primary purpose of mineral jelly is to create a barrier between the skin and the environment.
  • Vitamin E: Softens and moisturizes the skin and decreases itching. 

 

How to Use Max Wax?

For conditioning, dip your finger in the Max Wax tin and pull out a small amount. The consistency is uniform, and with a little bit of pressure it easily scoops out. Gently massage the wax into the pads.  Before going outdoors apply liberally for optimum protection. Be sure to get it between the pads as well. As you keep applying, you will notice a sheen covering your dog’s paws, and a smooth barrier is formed. When you’re done and a uniform sheen is formed, you will be all set to venture outside! 

 

Conclusion

An added layer of protection is never a bad idea! Max Wax does an amazing job in creating a hydrophobic barrier between the paw and anything else that your dog may walkthrough. The formula is beyond simple, and it works just like an invisible boot for your dog’s sensitive paws.
