Caring for Dry, Cracked Dog Paws

What Makes Dog’s Paws Dry Out or Crack? Dry, cracked dog paws can be caused by many different issues, typically stemming from where your dog walks on a frequent basis and the environment you live in.  Dogs in areas with dry, hot ground can have paws that dry out frequently, and result in cracking. This is also seen in dogs who swim frequently in chlorinated pools or even the ocean. Both salt and chlorine can dry out paw pads.  Dogs who live in colder climates, or who play in the snow frequently, can also find themselves having dry, cracked paws.
