    I noticed that Kahlua's little paws are ridiculously dry and scratchy so I ordered some paw butter off of Amazon... I just looked for the best reviews and went with that. Do any of you use the paw butter? Is there anything I should know about this? Do you have favorite brands?

    I would try something natural first, like cocoa or shea butter, that are very hydrating and non toxic.

    Most of the ones I've seen have natural ingredients. It's the time of year that I work in my workroom making product - cold process soap, lotions, butters, etc. I might see what I can come up with for my guys. I was thinking that in addition to some butters I might add some wax for the winter.

    I have musher's wax. I don't use it enough. My dog's pad wears out before the wax does anything to help. I recently ordered derma paws to get the little dog to stop licking his feet from allergies.

    Hector, the ingredients for Dermapaw are almost exactly what I was thinking. If I use vitamin E for the tocotrienol and tocophpherol portion, I should be pretty close. I have all of the other ingredients in my workroom. What is the consistency? Is it scoopable or more firm, like a hard butter?

    I have not received it yet. I will let you know.

    I got something called Paw Magic: 100% Organic and Natural Dog Paw Butter from Amazon. It had great reviews.
    I got it over the weekend but have not used it yet as Kahlua has an appointment with the groomer today.
    It has been raining here lately and our backyard is a mud pit and she is absolutely caked in mud from head to toe and in desperate need of a bath.
    Since her claws are in desperate need of a trim I figured it makes sense to let them do the whole thing. Once she gets back that paw butter is going on right away.

    I noticed Denna's paws got a LOT softer and smoother when I started giving her a Vit E supplement. It's hard to over do Vit E, so it might be worth a try. I give Denna one human Vit E pill a week, but I'm thinking about increasing that to 2/week. Denna's raw-fed and eats a lot of frozen sardines - which is why I started with the Vit E... I read (in dogsnaturallymagazine) that high amounts of fish oil can displace Vit E, so you need to supplement Vit E if you feed a lot of fish.

    If the temp is cold it is pretty solid kind of like beeswax lip balm, but at room temp say 60 degree F then it feels like butter and yes this stuff has emu oil in it which is a strange ingredient to me lol.
