Did you know that we also only have sweat glands in our paws, and no where else? Although, we mainly cool through panting. Though some Dogs have paws that smell like corn. I am told the distinctive smell is because of a build up of microbes such as yeast and sweat.
In that case, may I suggest that the paws might benefit from a wash, thorough drying, and a dab of FurBabies Botanicals Multipurpose Magic furbalm to get rid of those microbes, followed by a good quality protective balm to protect, moisturise and prevent dry cracked paws and over-proliferation of those microbes (highly recommend nose, paw and wrinkle balm)
