If you have ever been to Northern Virginia during the winter, then you are probably aware that we don’t really know how to handle snow. We get it often enough that it’s a problem, but not too often that we’re actually prepared for big snow falls.

Our inability to prepare and deal with winter weather usually means endless traffic jams on some of our favorite roads – like I-66. Last year it took me almost an hour to go 3 miles because we had a surprise “dusting.”

It also means that we salt EVERYTHING. Sidewalks and other walkways are covered in salt or ice melt pretty much from the first snow fall until it all gets washed away in mid-March. Some places think about our pets and use a pet friendly option, but there is really no way of telling once it’s already on the ground.

So we hedge our bets by protecting both Ralph and Luna’s paw pads through a few different steps. We use paw covers like Pawz on long walks and always make sure to wipe each and every paw free of possible chemicals as soon as we get back inside. We also use paw moisturizing cream to make sure they don’t get cracked and damaged.

This year we are trying out a new brand of paw moisturizer and one lucky person will be able to do the same because Pura Naturals is sponsoring an amazing prize pack for Day 4 of the Stocking Stuffer Giveaways to keep your pup healthy and safe this winter. (Did you miss Day 3? Find it here!)

Beagles & Bargains Stocking Stuffer Giveaways 2016 - Day 4 - Pura Naturals Pet

Beagles & Bargains Stocking Stuffer Giveaways Disclaimer

Pura Naturals Pet has dedicated itself to creating the highest quality products for cats and dogs, using only ingredients that are natural to Earth. They strive to eliminate dangerous toxins, skin irritants, and chemical fragrances from products we use on our pets.

They truly understand that we have to be the voice for our pets. Just because your dog or cat can’t complain when a product stings their eyes or leaves them with a burning rash, doesn’t mean that those products are safe.

Paw Rescue, Nose Butter, and Ear Cleansing System from Pura Naturals Pet

We were lucky to try out three products from Pura Naturals Pet recently and I am definitely planning to use them more frequently as the weather gets colder, drier, and snowier.

Paw Rescue was the first product we put to the test. It is designed to heal and restore dry, cracked paw pads by hydrating, soothing, and moisturizing with Shea Butter and Vitamin E.

So far, we haven’t had to use it repair damage, but I have been applying it as a precautionary measure. Luna seems to be a big fan of the smell and taste, which is fine because it is safe even when licked! But, I don’t plan on giving it to her as a snack any time soon.

I love that the ingredients are all high quality and included for a specific purpose rather than just filler. Paw Rescue contains Organic Hemp Seed Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Beeswax, Organic St. John’s Wort Extract, Vitamin E, Organic Rosemary Extract, and Organic Calendula Extract.

To use Paw Rescue, all you have to do is rub it into your dog’s paw pads and massage gently.

Pura Naturals Pet Nose Butter keeps dog noses moist and dry all winter long

We are also prepared to keep Ralph and Luna’s noses moist all winter long with Pura Naturals Pet’s Nose Butter. Made of just Organic Olive Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Castor Oil, and Organic Rosemary Extract, Nose Butter protects and heals dry, cracked noses. The Beeswax creates a moisturizing barrier while the Castor Oil calms and soothes.

Just like Paw Rescue, Nose Butter is made with food grade ingredients, so it is safe even if your dog attempts to lick it.

Both of these winter weather tools are certified to USDA Organic Standards and made right here in the USA. Plus, they are chemical, paraben, gluten, and fragrance free and are made with absolutely no synthetic dyes or perfumes, preservatives, or additives.

The third product we’ve put to the test is the Pura-Tips Ear Cleansing System. If you have ever had a Beagle or other floppy eared dog then you know regular ear cleanings are crucial to prevent nasty ear infections. Just this past summer we dealt with BOTH Ralph and Luna have a double ear infection and I don’t ever want to go through that again.

Pura Naturals Pet Ear Cleansing System helps protect dogs from ear infections

In the past, we’ve tried various other ear cleaning products. Some are just solutions you put in the ear while other comes with special applicators. We gave them all a chance, but in the end we didn’t think any of them were much better than the old fashioned cotton ball.

But, I think the Pura-Tips that come as part of this system are about to change that. They are carefully designed to remove oil and dirt without damaging your dog’s inner ear and ear canal. Essentially these are fancy Q-tips for dogs and so far they have made life a lot easier. But, the best part is that they are reusable and all you have to do is rinse the tips with hot water between uses. The tips themselves are made of bio-based foams that are derived from renewable resources such as plants and trees and are produced in an eco-friendly manufacturing process.

The Ear Cleansing System also comes with special Ear Cleansing Serum that contains Organic Olive Oil, Organic Witch Hazel, Organic Mullein Oil, and Organic Chamomile. The Mullein Oil acts as a natural disinfectant and the Witch Hazel deodorizes any bad smells.

If you are ready to protect your dog’s paws and nose this winter, you can shop Pura Naturals Pet products in the AKC Online Shop. Keep those floppy ears clean and pick up your Ear Cleansing System on Amazon for about $25.

You can also find many other Pura Naturals Pet products on Amazon. Both the Nose Butter and Paw Rescue are great stocking stuffers for your pups. Plus, many qualify for free Amazon Prime shipping!
