Bag Balm for your dog?

Ever wonder how you can help your dog with his chapped and/or irritated skin?

Take a look at how Bag Balm helped Arbutus; (Arbutus is Justin’s family pet.  He is 10 months old at this time).  Arbutus likes to run through the tall grass and fields on his family farm.  Sometimes his playful adventures result in minor skin irritations to his belly and lower flanks.



Day 1 Photo Prior to 1st Bag Balm application:

Poor baby, Arbutus is all red and scratchy.  :(






Take a look 2 days later.  Wow, Arbutus is so much happier.  :)

After just ONE application, look at the skin on his flanks!  Cool, Comfortable and Healthy.

Arbutus is now ready for his next adventure out in the fields!

It is recommended to keep Bag Balm handy for future applications as needed.  You may want to make a regimen of applying Bag Balm once a day to protect from future discomfort.

Keep Bag Balm handy in your pet(s) pack,  as an easy ointment to ”Salve” their minor skin irritations.

Why is Bag Balm Better?

Why is Bag Balm® better?
Because it’s made differently.
(beware of the imitators).
The saying goes that imitation is the greatest form of flattery. We’ve had our share.

Be careful, because imitation products often carry a bigger price. And make pretty big claims, to boot.

That’s why it’s always best to look for the familiar green can with red clover on the lid. We’re in drugstores, farm stores, pet stores, hardware stores, feed stores, and tack shops all across the country.

CBS visited the manufacturing plant in Lyndonville, VT a while back to see what people are saying about Bag Balm.  Like the article mentions, we have heard more stories about what people use the product for than we care to share.

story about its problem-salving – they use it on squeaky bed springs, psoriasis,
dry facial skin, cracked fingers, burns, zits, diaper rash, saddle sores,
sunburn, pruned trees, rifles, shell casings, bed sores and radiation

Everything, it seems, except for cows.

Shania Twain counts on Bag Balm”When her skin is really dry”

YOU CAN TAKE THE GIRL OUT OF THE COUNTRY, but you can’t take the country out of the girl.

Or that she has a reported $3 million contract with Revlon cosmetics. When Shania Twain, 34, is out of the spotlight and her pores are parched, she opens a tin of Bag Balm. “When my skin is really dry, I’ll rub it over my face and on my hair and leave it there all day,” Twain, who grew up in rural Ontario, told Britain’s Daily Telegraph last November. That’s right, buckaroos, the singer whose “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” became a pop anthem last year smears herself with an odoriferous mixture of petroleum jelly, lanolin and antiseptic used to soothe cows’ irritated udders. Says Twain’s stylist Jamie Kimmelman: “Other people talk about how they can’t live without their $200 moisturizer, but that’s not her attitude. She likes to use what makes her feel good.”  Read more from Shania and
