<span style="font-family:Times"> I noticed recently that Peaches's paws look dry and flakey. Is that normal? Or should I be applying some sort of topical moisturizer? Does anyone know of any products to use for dry paws?</span>

I am not an expert but I remember hearing somewhere that you want the pads
a little rough, if you keep them too soft they will bleed and get sores easily.

I'm sure someone will have more info for you.

i thought they were the same thing.....
The dryness I felt was the area under the toes. I guess its like the "palm" part of their paws. I hope Im making sense....</span>

It should be fairly rough as this is a very durable surface they walk and run on. If they are cracked, you can put Bag Balm on them to help soften them up.
