Fou-Stick Review: Proper Care for Pet Paws

Posted on Jul 30 2013 - 5:22pm by Susan Bewley

Like many pet owners, I consider my dog to be part of the family. In many ways, my Reya puppy is very spoiled. She has a variety of toys, different beauty products, all types of treats, and likely even more that I am not considering. Heck, this pup never leaves Petsmart without picking out a brand new toy. While I try to always to keep her looking amazing, I never really thought about her paw pads. It wasn’t until recently that I really began to worry about them, when I saw they were getting a bit dry. I was actually quite surprised to learn that the paw pads take just as much care as her nails, leading to me looking for the perfect moisturizer and paw protector for her. After doing a bit of research, I found what could potentially be the perfect, all natural product – the FouFou Dog’s Fou-Stick. Wanting to know more, I reached out to FouFouPets, who was nice enough to send me the product for free!

FouFou Dog’s Fou-Stick: Paw Care

As pet owners, most of us know that taking care of any animal is more than just making sure they have enough food and water. You have to take care of all of their needed, ranging from proper grooming to making sure they have enough mental stimulation to keep them happy. Taking care of a dog’s paws is just as important. The ASPCA did a great job going over proper paw care in their Top 10 Paw Care Tips for Dogs. This article goes into everything from proper nail care to make sure that your dog’s paws are properly cared for, ranging from moisturizing to avoiding summer sores.  Taking care of your pets paws is an important part of pet ownership, and is a great way to avoid horrible paw injuries.

FouFou Dog’s Fou-Stick: What Is It

By now, you are probably wondering what exactly FouFou Dog’s Fou-Stick is and how it relates to proper paw pad care. This product not only moisturizes your dogs paws, but prevents cracking. Dogs’ paws take quite a bit of abuse throughout the day and are one of the most likely parts for a dog to injure. By keeping them properly moisturized, you are preventing cracking, bleeding, and other painful injuries. What is also great about the Fou-Stick is the extra protection it offers against burns from hot concrete and winter salt – two things that are known to be very damaging to little (and in Reya’s case, not-so-little) paws. Since this product doesn’t leave any residue and goes own transparently, you don’t have to worry about any mess.


FouFou Dog’s Fou-Stick: Effectiveness

So far, I have to say I’m impressed with the FouFou Dog’s Fou-Stick. My poor Reya had some very dry paw pads, mostly from walking outside on the concrete. After the first use, her paws were already looking better. Before using this cream, her pads felt like sandpaper – now, they have a nice, soft texture. Even better, Reya loves the peppermint smell! On this note, however, I am happy that it is made from all natural ingredients. She loves it so much that she tries eating this whenever it comes out!


FouFou Dog’s Fou-Stick: Overall

Based on my own experience with the FouFou Dog’s Fou-Stick, I have to say I am impressed with the moisturizer. Reya likes it and her paws feel so much better! Best of all, its small enough that I can re-apply it easily, making it perfect for traveling.  I can happily give the Fou-Stick an A rating!

    I wish I would have known about something like this when our dog was still alive. His paws used to get so dry I would sit in the garage and try to give him "foot facials" lol it wasnt pleasant for either of us 🙂

    This is something I definitely need to buy for my dogs.  My male has very dry and cracked pads and this would be perfect for him.  My 2 dogs are like my kids and need to be taken care of.  Thank you for sharing this review.

    I never thought about a "lip balm" for dogs' pads, but what a great idea.  Our dog used to get horribly dry pads in the summer when we went to  our beach house from running on the hot sand.  This would have been a godsend.

    My dogs hate messing with the feet!

      Reya hated it at first too but she learned quickly she has to deal with it 😉 We wipe down her feet after every walk. Having such a huge dog in the house can also mean a very big mess when she’s muddy!

    This sounds like something really great for our dogs paws.  I often think about when they walk on concrete or gravel what it might do to their paws and this is like a lip balm for their feet!!!!!

    This is great!  I hadn't heard of this but it would be very useful.  Pets are on their paws all the time through rocks, hot pavement….Their poor paws get sore and torn.  How great to have a product to specifically help.

      I was pretty happy when I found it. I wasn’t sure about trying it at first, but Reya seems to enjoy it. I’ve always been nervous about putting human hand cream on her due to some of the chemicals in the cream (even the natural ones). Lets face it, dogs are going to lick some of it off their paws and none of us want to give our babies anything that will make them sick!

    Ooh I have got to get one of these for my babies! I will have to wrestle them for their feet at first probably but it will be worth it. Thanks for the great information!

      It was a fight at first with Reya but when she saw it tasted and smelled good, she was all about it!

    Thankfully my dogs do not have dry paws but they are young. I will definitely have to pick this up just to have to hand

    I would never have thought about something like this. I try to keep up on all things dog related. I have a severely allergic to everything on the earth dog and she wears shoes when I take her out to pee. This would probably be awesome to put on her pads while she's wearing the shoes to help get more moisture back!

    I never really thought about moisturizing my dogs' paws. Thanks for the information!
