This arrived in a much smaller post than I expected (admittedly this was due to me not comprehending that it came in 25 ml packs!) so at first I thought I had been a bit short changed, but actually only a little balm is needed and it goes a long way. I use this for dog 2's paw pads occasionally (approx fortnightly to monthly) as she is a rescue and arrived with us at 5 months old with the roughest, most calloused and sandpaper-like paw pads I've ever felt. I'm not sure why this is at all. I know dog's pads roughen over time but in comparison to our other dog (same age) and other dog-friends, hers are definitely not quite right. This balm helps to soften them a little and it helps her get used to her feet being handled. She even enjoys a good old foot massage now when I am applying it! It's a dog's life, eh.
