Another Aloe product I always have to hand (for the dogs and for me too – although I do have a separate one for me!!!) is the Forever Aloe Lips lip balm. Yes, you can of course use it as a lip balm but because it is self contained in its own little tube, it’s great for popping in to your first aid kit.
When skin dries, it dies. This means that if you allow the skin around a graze or wound to dry out, or to scab over, it will take much longer to heal and will possibly leave a scar as a result. If you can keep the skin hydrated and moist (not WET) the healing time speeds up and the skin is less itchy and tight. Whenever a wound starts to heal and the skin tightens, this can be irritating for your dog and often is the main cause of them nibbling and licking the area. This great little product can simply be twisted out, as you would a lip stick, and rubbed over the graze or sore patch to moisturise the area, keep it clean and help to soothe it all at the same time.
