Winter is definitely here in the Midwest which means lots of snow, ice, and paw burning salt. While I always use a pet safe de-icing compound at home, I know the city and some of my neighbors don’t. I don’t want to confine Suki to the yard and take away her walks until spring nor do I want to subject both of us to trying to put boots on her unless absolutely necessary…Fou Fou Pet Pawstick to the rescue. I’ve used other paw protecting balms and sticks but they always ended up being mushy and messy after a few uses. The Fou Fou Pet Pawstick reminds me of chapstick consistency and stays true to its form after repeated uses. It’s so easy to apply…no sticking your fingers into goopy jars. You just swipe the stick across the pads and you’re ready to go! I’ve also noticed it doesn’t leave a smeary stain on floors like other products I tried. It’s great regardless of your dog’s size. This stick is by far my favorite paw protecting product. Suki must not mind it either because she doesn’t try to wipe or lick it off immediately like previous ones.
