My dog, Charlie, is my only child. As a dog mom it’s my job keep him happy,
healthy and safe. Charlie is around 4 years old and, knock on wood, generally
healthy! He does however have some allergies, occasional hot spots and
tends to zoomie so fast he injures his paw pads!! I’ve tried many products in
the past and will be sharing some that have worked for us!

Charlie lives to zoom around and explore new places and sniff all the smells!
We are lucky to live in a city that has a lot of parks around us and Charlie has so many friends there that he runs and romps with! The beginning of our walks start
with a sniffari (uninterrupted sniffing of the environment) followed by fetch!
Once Charlie gets tired he will try to hide the ball which results in digging
the perfect hole. Last weekend Charlie dug the biggest hole ever! It was
such a big hole that his body almost disappeared into it! He even lost the ball
in the hole; and we ended up leaving the park without it! But we know it will
be a nice surprise for the next dog that finds it.

Unfortunately, on the way home, I noticed that he was licking his paws and
they were red and irritated. Likely because of all of the running and digging.
When we got home and he laid on the couch, I immediately reached for our
Skout’s Honor Prebiotic Pet Balm. Within a few minutes of rubbing the balm
into his paw pads, Charlie stopped licking and was able to pass out from all
the day’s fun! Ahh yes instant relief!! I cuddled him with the confidence in
knowing that his paws would be ready for the next adventure whether it be
on grass, gravel, sand or snow! We use this product daily as a preventative
measure to keep his paws healthy and to provide an extra barrier of

In general, because Charlie has sensitive paws (even when running on
grass) I spray Charlie’s paws with Skout’s Honor Probiotic Paw Spray. Not
only does the spray smell so good, but it’s non medicated, alcohol-free and
hypoallergenic. I don’t have to worry about Charlie licking it off and getting
sick plus I know his paws are protected and clean. A big plus is it gets rid of
that corn chip/frito paw smell that tends to occur when bacteria and sweat
builds up! Did you know dogs primarily sweat through the glands of their paw

And our third favorite product is the Skout's Honor Probiotic Hot Spot Hydrogel. We use this also to help with the itching. It comes in handy for those difficult itchy spots. For Charlie this happens sometimes after beach walks. The sand can be rough on a sensitives pups paws, especially if he’s like mine and will zoom around and dig holes! When we leave the beach we try to clean his paws of
sand and salt water as much as possible, unfortunately sometimes he gets
to his paws first and will try to lick and chew on them to get the sand out and
that’s when hot spots can happen. Because of the licking and moisture, the
area gets inflamed and itchy causing a cycle of more licking. The Skout's
Honor Hotspot Hydrogel heals and protects the
site! The website even says it can be used for mild skin abrasions,
lacerations, cuts, burns and other irritated skin!
