We tried out the 60g container and found it extremely helpful for our active beagle who loves to go on walks, even when it’s -20F or 90F in Minnesota. It helps protect his paws from snow, ice, salt, and hot pavement. It also takes a lot longer before one of his paws starts “snowballing” and snow gets stuck between his toes. It’s truly an all-season product and yes, he does try to lick it in small amounts. However, we have not noticed any bad reactions so far in the past 3 years. We loved this product so much we bought the 200g container (over 3x bigger than this one) off a different website. Highly recommended!
