Most dogs are busy animals prone to paw injuries including bruising, sprains, cuts, wounds, and infections. Signs of injury are easy to spot and include obvious pain, limping, red and swollen pads, and a general reluctance to walk or run. Heal Care Ointment is a topical ointment designed to soothe and heal injured paws.

How to Administer
Topical ointment: Clean and dry paw pads. Apply to affected area 3 to 4 times per day until healed. It may be necessary to use booties or wrap the paw with gauze dressing so that your pet does not lick the ointment.
Do not apply on open or bleeding wounds. Heal Care ointment contains arnica which may cause a skin allergy on some very sensitive pet’s. Try the product on a hairless part of the body first to test for sensitivity
Should I regularly check my dog for scrapes and bruises?
Yes, it's a really good idea. Our vet staff have seen dogs come into the clinic with paws sloughing after playing happily for hours. Sometimes they're having so much fun, they just won't show their pain. So yes check often. It's also a good idea to not walk your dog on hot concrete, and to wipe their paws down after walks in the winter.
Can my dog go outside immediately after application or should i let it soak in a bit first
We would encourage you to let it soak in a bit. A few minutes should be fine.
Is there a difference between the Heal Care Ointment for dogs and cats?
No, we've split up 'for dogs' and 'for cats' to make it easier for people to find. But all our supplements can be used for dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, and others.
Do certain breeds skin needs more time to absorb?
Not necessarily. The heal care ointment can be used on sore joints. If using it on sore joints we would suggest getting your vet or groomer to shave the area first.
