How to Help Support The Health of Our Dogs’ Skin, Joints, & Muscles
This is a sponsored guest post with Innovet Pet.
As a pet mom of two Great Pyrenees who are loaded with fur, I often worry about what’s hiding under all that fluff. While I wouldn’t trade away their fluffiness for the world, I’m all too aware of how all that extra fur brings along an increased risk for skin problems. There are bugs that love hiding, yeast infections, and hot spots to all look out for. But that’s only one of their breed specific issues I worry about for them.
Unfortunately, like many breeds, Great Pyrenees are susceptible to hip dysplasia, inflammation, and joint pain. There is also this Spongiform Leukoencephalomyelopathy (SLEM) which is a recessive hereditary disease in Border Terriers. It is commonly known as “shaking puppy syndrome”.
That’s why I was excited to give heal.protect. wag Balm by Innovet Pet a try. It offers 14 all-natural ingredients that give us a multi-solution approach to helping our dogs with everything from skin health to inflamed joints.

What Makes Heal.Protect.Wag Balm Different From Other Pet Topicals
Heal.protect.wag. Balm focuses on being a multipurpose solution that targets all sources of inflammation. Even better with 14 ingredients that all have a complex profile, this topical can target a single source of inflammation in multiple ways. Basically, inflammation doesn’t stand a chance!
This is so important because inflammation is associated with more major diseases than it isn’t.
Inflammation is seen playing either a role in allergies, asthma, autoimmune diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, chronic pain, depression, ulcers, and fever to name a few.
Innovet Pet included hemp seed oil, avocado oil, and St. John’s Wort. They also included apricot kernel oil and chamomile to help moisturize dry skin and soothe itchiness. Five great ingredients that come together to help prevent and treat those dreaded hotspots.
Heal.protect.wag Balm main focus is hitting all the source of inflammation from multiple attack points or pathways. Basically, all the ingredients in this topical have research showing they help reduce inflammation in some manner.
The topical allows you to apply direct relief from inflammation, pain, and arthritis at the source. This is a big help if you notice your pup is having more issues with a particular area.
So for example, your dog might have a couple of stiff limbs, but on some days their right back leg bothers them more. Heal.protect.wag Balm can be applied as needed for additional isolated support to a specific area
How to Use Heal.Protect.Wag Balm?
Simply apply a dime-sized amount either on your hand or directly on the area you want to treat. Gently massage the cream into your dog’s skin which will absorb within minutes.
For treating skin conditions such as irritated skin or preventive skin health, it may be difficult to see the topical working in the moment. You should see improvements in their skin within a few days to weeks depending on the reason for use.
For sore, stiff, and painful muscles & joints, you should see the topical physically helping with their mobility and comfort within 30-60 minutes. Apply more as needed at any time.
