b. After a month

c. It will happen eventually

Hint: It is a pretty common issue

It can vary from person to person. But eventually, bad germs and bacteria growth will start causing problems.

Q4. Now, what do you think are the main paw irritation causes?

a. It’s how they are

b. Bad germs and bacteria accumulation

c. Environmental issues

Hint: Every problem has a cause.


b. Bad germs and bacterial accumulation & c. Environmental issues

There are many paw irritation causes. However, the majority of them are related to bad germs and bacteria accumulation between pads.

Q5. Will licking naturally cure paw irritations?

Dog licking paws: How can I fix them? Dog paws protect against plenty of life’s obstacles while being a loveable part of your fur baby! Do you have a dog constantly licking paws? If your furry companion can’t seem to stop licking and chewing at their paws, this can be worrisome and simply annoying.

One of the most common paw irritations in dogs is the buildup of dirt, germs, and bacteria - especially between pads. These can each be problematic, causing irritations internally and externally. However, it’s impossible for dogs to avoid collecting this as they walk through grass, dirt, mud, puddles, and pet stores. These can affect your dog’s paws over time resulting in cracked paws, an unusual smell, and irritations they try to solve with constant licking. It’s similar to athlete’s foot with a human. If only dogs could wash their paws like we wash our hands!

Irritation causing bad germs, and bacteria
Gone in 3 sec.

Keeping our dog’s paws clean can prevent the accumulation of unwanted germs and bacteria. Sleepy Cotton created an AFTERWALK Paw Gel Cleanser designed to target the source of the problem of paw licking: unhealthy buildup. It’s made with naturally derived USA ingredients, and even mild enough to safely ingest. A dog’s paws encounter a significant amount of bacteria and germs throughout their day-to-day activities. By keeping them clean and germ-free, dogs can stay relaxed from constantly licking and chewing their paws. This way, you can also easily deter outside irritants from being tracked through your home.

Sleepy Cotton utilizes a medical-grade key clinical active ingredient that kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria. It’s also combined with healthful essential oils and natural honeyquat to give dogs super moisturized paws. This healthy regimen can keep us hoomans healthy too, as well as our dog’s body - inside and out.

Soothe Paws
Stop Paw Licking & Chewing

Our Gel Cleanser includes a high amount of chamomile and calendula extract. The combination of these two naturally derived anti-inflammatory ingredients works exceptionally well at soothing irritated paws.

Stopping a dog from licking its paw takes lots of time and patience. As long as you provide yourself with the right information and resources to target the issue, your dog's paws will be soothed in no time.

Properly clean and care for those adorable paws. Common paw washers and paw wipes are not able to get to where dirt, germs, and bacteria accumulates causing paw irritations - especially between pads. With Sleepy Cotton Paw Gel Cleanser, you can SUPER CLEAN and care for paws the right way, properly eliminating possible paw irritation causes.

Cup style paw washer

This method is messy. Plus, it will supply water that germs and bacteria need to grow.

Typical Way #3

Dog shampoo & Water

This way technically works great to get rid of germs and bacteria! But, it is messy and time consuming.

Great product

My dog has been having issues with their paws being irritated and licking. Think we’ve figured out the cause now but bought this to try and help give him relief. Very easy to use after a walk and not messy. Will definitely buy again when needed. - Meredith P.

Worth it!

Overall my experience has been positive! My dog used to chew her paws a lot, now she only chews them a little. Her paw pads look and feel a ton better and it's not made of super delicious, irresistible ingredients like some other things we've tried. At this point I feel like this is a product we'll continue to use. - Jenny F.
