The four-leggers of the Northeast Kingdom are tough as nails – they’re not afraid of the black bear, deer, bobcat, coyote, fox, fisher cat, loon, wild turkey, and ruffed grouse they share the Kingdom with.
But locals like Ana still like to use Bag Balm to preserve her dog’s paws from the harsh, icy weather in winter. Her dog thinks it’s just about the best foot massage ever, and her dog is right.
“I bought this product on the advice of a vet for our beagles to protect their paws in icy weather. I noticed that it quickly helped, not only to hydrate dry skin. We use it on small cuts and scrapes on the dogs and cats, as they frequently give each other tiny cuts while playing. I also have started using it on myself on rough dry spots, cracked areas of skin on my hands and cuticle beds (I’m a nurse who loves to garden...my hands suffer a lot), and on bug bites.”
