    Thank you so much! She has had crack pads for few days, but I see her getting healed thanks to you, Dr Andrew! Vaseline, coconut oil, and cbd oil all work!!

    if the dogs lick the coconut oil off … will it still work? I also do make sure its deep in her pads…

    I have been worried about my dog’s cracked paw since last week, she was limping. Will try coconut oil tomorrow cuz I have that at home right now. Hope it helps. I feel sad when I see her in pain. Thanks Dr. Jones.

    I use a mixture of coconut oil, Shea butter and coco butter for my skin and my dogs skin! I use coconut oil for any cuts or scrapes. It helps heal them up.

    Thank you for this video. I noticed my dog’s pads are cracked a couple of days ago. He was never limping, though. I will do what you said in the video. Also, one of his pads (just beneath his claw) is cracked and torn apart with a small piece of flesh moving around. When I touched it, it really seemed to bother him, of course. Should I take my dog to the vet to get stitches?

    ‘She was limping’ … then jumps off the couch like a cat …. Cool ha ha

    Love your videos thanks allot. I’ve got a pitbull who got inflamed toes in ALL his paws. Very red tender cysts come and go. Been dealing with this problem for over 6months. Took him to the vet and he supplied me a 1month and half supply of antibiotics for skin and sterioid shot for allergies. Did absolutely NOTHING for his poor paws. I’ve been rubbing Neosporin twice daily for the last 2weeks and also been giving him fish oil and curcumin per your other video I watch3d but still super red and inflamed in between all paws and toes really need some help thanks for the vids again.

    My daughter dog pads are separating, are there any type of infections that cause this?

  14. Fira Lion2003 on June 17, 2019 at 6:50 pm

    Hello! I adopted a little chihuahua and where I live it gets very hot, my guess is that she was living on the hot streets, I checked her paws and just realized how badly cracked they were. I’m a new dog owner, is it possible to ask where you bought some of those natural remedies? Thank you so much!

  15. helpfulnatural on June 17, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    With the cold weather coming on, I made a paw wax for my dog to apply before any damage is done from road salt and lawn chemicals applied in the Fall. It’s also great for treating cracks in the paw pads to help them heal faster. It’s a mixture of beeswax, coconut oil, calendula oil, and avocado oil. I poured the melted mixture into a tin about the size of my dog’s paws so I just have to rub his paw onto the surface to apply the wax. I couldn’t find calendula oil so I made it by steeping dried calendula flowers in pure olive oil for 4-6 weeks, then strained it.

    +Veterinary Secrets Can you do a video on “hairy paw” and how to identify it

  19. LA WhispersASMR on June 17, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    That’s some fantastic elevator music going on in this video. Rock on

  20. Tiffany Blondin on June 17, 2019 at 6:58 pm

    What would you suggest for a dog who won’t stop licking his paw? Is it okay to wrap it up after applying any of these remedies to ensure he doesn’t try to lick it off? If so, how long would you advise leaving it bandaged before it will start causing problems?

  21. Nancy Volker on June 17, 2019 at 6:58 pm

    you should take a look into C60 and Borax, and castor oil for cataracts a drop or two before bedtime for people and puppies and kittens will get rid of them and the C60 will restore vision to normal for those cheater readers you need after 42 and it works against lime ds.

  22. Jackie Marsh on June 17, 2019 at 7:00 pm

    Thank you Dr. the video was very interesting! Dry paws can really be a problem for sure if not treated so Thank you for the information!!!

  23. Caryn Gayfield on June 17, 2019 at 7:01 pm

    Great informational video as always.  Thanks Dr. Jones.  I recognize the shea butter you show because I use that same brand too!  Alaffia is the brand and they are Fair Trade helping women and villages in Africa.  This company hails from Olympia, WA where I called home for many years.  There is also Shea Nut Oil by Now Foods which is great too!

    who the heck downvotes this??

    I have a black lab mix with wolf. At a puppy at 7 weeks I adopted him from an abusive home so he suffer PTSD. He was full of worms. I had him dewormed. But at 3 months he started shacking, had stiff muscles, hard paw that started to crack and stop eating. I had to hand feed him for  months before he started eating on his own. He eat Alpo and table food. What I eat, Jcob eat too. I had him vaccine and started rubbing his muscles and putting aloe vara on his paws. It worked. But he grew from10 lbs at 7 weks to over 70 lbs by 3 months old. Now Jacob is 12 years old and seem to have trouble walking as if he were drunk. He doesn’t seem to e in pain but I like to know if it is late signs of HARD PAW DISEASE and how do I treat him.

  26. Marked Man on June 17, 2019 at 7:06 pm

    Should you wrap it as well so we’re no getting coconut oil on the floor and my pet doesn’t lick it off?

  27. Rachna Tripathi on June 17, 2019 at 7:08 pm

    Hello Dr Andrew. Can you come to India and start a small hospital that I plan to build at Jhans????i –revenue sharing basis–we need you more here plz

  28. Sarah Pitt on June 17, 2019 at 7:08 pm

    Thank you for the great videos. I just "adopted" a giant dog that was abandoned on a highway. His poor paws were so tender he couldn’t walk on hard surfaces when he came home ☹️ I haven’t cared for a dog in several years and your channel has been such a help ❤️

  29. Nini Leakz on June 17, 2019 at 7:09 pm

    I’ve always been tempted to put lotion on my dogs pads but figured it may be irritating. I’ll try coconut oil. My dog loves coconut oil too. Thanks

  30. Genesis Kravitz on June 17, 2019 at 7:12 pm

    Love your videos!

  31. Margaret Blickenderfer on June 17, 2019 at 7:18 pm

    Great channel! By chance have you covered dog pads that look really rough, and sort of striated? My large dog chews on them, esp the random one near the ankle, like it itches.

  32. Doug styles on June 17, 2019 at 7:19 pm

    I rescued an 8 month old pit and her pads literally slice my chest,abs when we play. It really STINGS! Lol.
    Don’t they lick most of this stuff off?

  33. Eve Haslam on June 17, 2019 at 7:19 pm

    Thank you- wonderful video. I was always told never use vaseline on there pads because it clogs them. There is also a CBD balm- probably ideal! Also Shea Butter, Bees wax, Coc oil and sunflower oil, heat up, cool off, makes a great balm!!!

  34. REBEL LOGIC on June 17, 2019 at 7:19 pm

    Just as I needed this video – boom u post it! Thank you so much for the constant wisdom that u share with us

  35. Rashi Jamwal on June 17, 2019 at 7:21 pm

    Thank you so much ! love and regards !

  36. Adina Lev on June 17, 2019 at 7:22 pm

    Could you take the camera out of "auto-focus"? The constant moving of the lens is making me a bit nauseated

  37. motivate4change1 on June 17, 2019 at 7:28 pm

    HI Dr..thank u so much for your videos. I have 2 questions for u! After you rub these things into the footpads, wont the doggies lick it right off? Shouldn’t we wrap their feet or put socks on them after applying any of these things to their paw pads? and…2nd question…is if safe and/or beneficial for me to give an 18 lb dog CBD Oil, who has Hemolytic Anemia and is being treated with 6 mos of Prednisone, Atopica (and Doxyclcene for a few weeks) ? Wil there be any problems, or negative side effects of CBD oil going against his current treatment for Hemolytic Anemia with those drugs I listed? Thank u!!!
