Check out this informative video from Mercola on the benefits of soaking and disinfecting your dog’s paws after a walk outside. Cleaning off your dog’s paws before he starts licking them is important both now in the winter and later on in the summer.
A dog’s paws get salt on them in the winter, and in warmer weather, they could become covered in substances like lawn pesticides, especially since dogs sweat from their paw pads.
How do you clean your dog’s paws? A quick soak with water mixed with betadine is a great way to disinfect paws. A soothing cleaning solution can also be made with water and vinegar or water mixed with green or chamomile tea.
