The Hungry Puppy is a proud carrier of Bag Balm, a versatile salve that is used to treat skin conditions including: cuts, scratched, irritations, and abrasions.

It is safe to use on animals.
Not only does it heal but it also softens and moisturizes the skin.

Bag Balm is an all-purpose skin moisturizer and conditioner that has been around for over 100 years. It is made from a blend of lanolin, petrolatum, and other natural ingredients that work together to provide intense hydration and nourishment to the skin. The lanolin helps to restore the natural moisture of the skin, while the petrolatum provides a protective barrier against the elements. Bag Balm is ideal for dry, cracked, or irritated skin, and can also be used to soften calluses and soothe minor cuts and scrapes. It is gentle enough to be used on delicate facial skin, and can even be used to soothe chapped lips. Bag Balm is a versatile product that can be used in many different ways to help keep skin healthy and hydrated.

Benefits of Bag Balm for Pets 

  1. Helps to Protect and Soothe Skin: Applying Bag Balm to your pet's skin can help to protect it from the elements, such as wind, cold, and sun. It also helps to soothe any irritated or cracked skin. 
  2. Prevents and Treats Infections: Bag Balm contains ingredients such as lanolin and petrolatum, which are known to have antiseptic and anti-fungal properties. This helps to prevent and treat skin infections in pets. 
  3. Can Help to Treat Hot Spots: Hot spots are areas of irritated skin caused by itching or scratching. Applying Bag Balm to the affected area helps to soothe the skin and reduce itching, which can help to prevent further irritation. 
  4. Heals Dry, Cracked Paws: Bag Balm is an excellent choice for treating dry, cracked paws. Its emollient properties help to soften and heal the skin, while its antiseptic properties help to prevent infection. 
  5. Keeps Fleas at Bay: Bag Balm can also help to keep fleas at bay. Its natural ingredients contain flea repellents, which can help to keep fleas from making your pet their home.

You can even use Bag Balm yourself! Use on your lips or skin. It is a great product that can help to moisturize and protect from dryness and chapping. Great for hard working hands and tired cracked feet.

Bag Balm is produced by the Dairy Association Co., Inc., which is based in Vermont, USA. The company has been in operation since 1899 and originally developed Bag Balm as a solution for soothing and protecting the udders of dairy cows. Over time, it gained popularity among farmers and others for its effectiveness in moisturizing and healing various skin ailments, including dry, chapped skin.

Bag Balm is made from a blend of lanolin, which helps to retain moisture, and petrolatum, which forms a protective barrier on the skin. It also contains antiseptic 8-hydroxyquinoline sulfate as an added ingredient.

The company's main focus is on the production and distribution of Bag Balm, and it has become a trusted brand for various skin care needs, including relief for dry skin, chapped lips, and minor wounds. While Bag Balm originated as a product for livestock, it has gained popularity among individuals for its versatile uses.

It is important to note that while Bag Balm has a long-standing reputation for its effectiveness, the company's animal testing policies are not known. It is recommended to reach out to the company directly for up-to-date information regarding their cruelty-free and animal testing practices if there are any.
