Four Paws Paw Guard was created to protect pets' paws from harsh summer and winter conditions. Paw Guard is a wax-like formulation created to protect paws from wintertime salt, sand and other corrosive eliminators of ice and snow. During the summer, Paw Guard prevents burns from searing hot pavement, hot sand and acts as a moisturizer for dry, cracked pads. It not only protects paws and pads, it heals too. Paw Guard contains lanolin (known for its moisturizing qualities) and is pleasantly scented.
