All good! Belle (our border collie) does it all the time. That's why we needed to develop a formula that was completely safe to eat. All the ingredients are approved by the FDA (even for human consumption).
Welcome into the Säker Family!
Here, you'll find everything you need to know about your new paw balm mini!

Use your index to push at the bottom of the tube until 1/4 inch of the balm is out.
Use the tube as if it was lip balm. Apply it to your dog's paws, ears or nose.
For touch-ups, you can always use your fingers to apply the balm.
Tap the tube on a flat surface to make the balm go back in.

What if my dog licked the balm ?
The top lid of the balm is slightly loose, it falls off.
How often should I apply the balm ?
Your dog's paws are healthy and you use it as protection?
You should apply paw balm prior to a walk (I would apply it for extended outing; over 15mins). You can wipe off the balm once you're back from the walk.
Your dog's paws, ears or nose are dry or cracked?
Apply the balm twice a day on that specific area. The natural creams inside will heal the wound and reinforce the natural protection.
My balm is not filled to the lid, am I missing some?
Not at all. Each balm gets at least 0.15oz.
The reason it's not filled to the top is because the tubes are bigger. Keep in mind, we handpour each balm. It's hard not to spill it when filling the tubes. Therefore we made the tubes slightly bigger to make sure we can manipulate the balms easily.
Will the balm stain our floors?
First, we must say that the balm is for outdoor uses. You should apply it before going out and wiping it off after.
We did the testing indoor and it didn't stain the wood floors. BUT we haven't tested on all kinds of surfaces. To be honest, I'd try to keep the balm for outdoor uses.
Is the balm as good for hot asphalt as it is for snow?
Absolutely! On the outside, the balm acts as a barrier against hot AND cold.
While on the inside, the active ingredients will soothe and heal rough paw pads.
Shouldn't my dog's paws be okay by themselves? I mean, it's nature.
What's in it?
The ingredients & their benefits
Shea butter can be used to treat burns, insect bites, itching, wound healing and rashes.
Candelilla is said to hydrate parched and scaly skin for enhanced smoothness. It is also a skin-protective barrier agent that helps prevent the skin from losing moisture.
Coconut oil has some potential benefits for skin, including reducing inflammation, keeping skin moisturized and helping heal wounds.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant. It can help protect your cells from damage. Vitamin E may also be beneficial at reducing UV damage to skin.
Olive oil is also known to moisturize and hydrate your skin.
Well, there's no 6th ingredient...
So, I use this space to tell you how much it means to me that you decided to support our small local business.
We put all our love in the making of each balm.
You've heard right!
Paw Balm is something you need to order frequently. We didn't feel comfortable using plastic such as deodorant containers.
So our bags are biodegradable. And even better, both the paw balm & paw balm mini are made of waxed cardboard ready for compost.
