Pet medications - Ask a vet a question about your dog or cat

Question from Jacqueline Resendez


Chow, age 2 1/2 years

Just recently my dog Yellow’s paws feel dry and rough. The front paw pads look like they are cracking and feel like rough sandpaper. She walks fine and doesn’t seem to be experiencing pain, but I am not sure if this is normal for outside dogs. Is there any type of lotion for dogs that moisturizes her paw pads or treatments available. Please help, I don’t want it to get any worse. Thank you for all your help!

Dermavet is an antiseptic wound-healing cream. It stimulates the epithelialisation phase of wound healing, antiseptic properties create a clean wound environment. Dermavet helps wound heal faster.
