MP recently came across Paw Refresher by Good Essentials. Paw Refresher is an antibacterial and antifungal spray to help sanitize a dog’s paws. We sat down with Good Essentials to learn more about Paw Refresher and what makes it so unique. Learn more below.

MP: Why is it important to sanitize your dog’s paws?

GE: When dogs come in from outside, they can carry many harmful chemicals or pesticides on their paws. If they lick their paws to clean them, they risk ingesting harmful chemicals. Sanitizing dogs’ paws removes toxic substances like tar, feces, and other debris that can get trapped. These can often lead to various diseases.

However, dog owners must be careful what they use to clean their dog’s paws. Hand sanitizers, for example, should never be used to clean a dog’s paws because it can cause poisoning if absorbed through the skin, and can make your dog sick if ingested. Because it is an alcohol-based product, it can also dry out the paw and make it more likely to crack and to be more sensitive to burns when they’re out on walks.

A dog’s paw is as sensitive as a human hand and drying out the footpad can cause painful cracks, like a cracked, dry heel. This is why we’ve created a special all-natural formula specifically designed to refresh and clean a dog’s paws.

MP: How do dogs get infections on their paws?

GE: There are a variety of ways that dogs get infections but it’s mostly through their paws. Dry, cracked paw pads (which are a result of hot pavements, wintery conditions, chemicals, dry air, exposure to rough surfaces, and excessive licking) can be painful and put your pet at a risk for infection.

MP: How can dog owners naturally protect their dogs from infection?

GE: Cleaning your dog’s paw pads with Good Essentials’ Paw Refresher is an all-natural solution that will protect your dog from infections on its paws.
