Default Maddy went to the vet and came home with her own chapstick

Last week I noticed Maddy licking her lips a lot, so I looked in her mouth but didn't see anything. I got out the flashlight and had a look, and noted ack! Could be brushing their teeth more thoroughly! But nothing else. A week goes by, about about 100 mouth checks, and I can see her lips getting swollen and pink, so finally off we go to the vet. Vet: so what is wrong? Me: She has a mouth infection; I think it's cellitis. Vet: Where? Me: There. Vet:...Where? Me: Right there. Vet: "Oh okay! No wait, where?" So, I felt a mite foolish, but the upshot is, sometimes dogs get chapped lips, and that allows bacteria or allergens to enter which could irritate the tender inner lip area, so I can put chap stick on her before our runs to prevent this. She got a shot of antihistimines and I paid $290, so we both had to suffer! (while we were there we got thorough well-puppy exams including hips so I guess there was that). Not sure if PF members have ever had this experience with your poodles? But if you do, Burt's Bees makes a nice organic chapstick, honey or mint flavoured

Indiana: I had no idea that could happen to a pooch! Glad Maddy is okay. It's amazing just how useful ChapStick can be. I put it on Chagall's paw pads if they get chafed or rough. (I save the "good stuff," Burt's Bees honey flavored, for myself!)

i would recommend fragrance free for your dogs (and never ever use any essential oils around cats)

Has anyone else here used Bag Balm? It was originally made for cow udders, but I have used it for my pups, and my family. It works great for paw pads and I've used it for chap stick, knees, elbows, heels, etc. It's not expensive either.

Yes,
I used it on our former dog. I just don't groove on the scent* of it, but does work wonders! Our local feed and grain store sells tons of it.

*(Admittedly, I'm a bit of a *stinker" about scents!)

I live bag balm! My husband uses it all the time on his hands. I've seen on the tin it can be used on dog paws, but I've never tried it.

I don't think it was that brand, but we used to get a balm for our cows and used it on our hands and feet too...it is great for those rough summer heels and gardening hands The kind we used had a spotted cow on the front and it smelled kind of creamy...not perfumey but not unpleasant either. But I like the smell of hoof cream too, so that's me. The only thing is, I would hesitate to put it on my own dogs' feet because we conditioned them slowly to running to toughen up those feet...would hate to soften them back up again. But I only recently found out that you can put cream on their noses to protect them, I thought that was a no-no! So I'm learning every day
