There are creams and balms you can use on paws. OnlyNaturalPet.com has several kinds.

Check with your vet first but you could try a little baby oil on the pads. The cats here groom their toes too. It's quiet funny to watch it looks like they are trying to pull them out. laugh out loud But they are just sharpening them up. laugh out loud MOL all the better to scratch you withlaugh out loud Kidding. But they do like to keep them in good shape.
We use baby oil on Hedgehogs that appear sick with Mange. It helps put a coating over the skin suffocating the horrible critters (Mange that is). Hedgehogs only come out at night, mainly.laugh out loud unless they are sick and need help.frown

Also maybe you can change the diet to something that has a little more oils or fats in it. That might help too.shrug Often the food packets say for sensitive skin. Or to help dry /flaking coats.thinking

Sounds like it's ok in small doses. But I would suggest you did a little more research as they say never trust what you read. If you are just rubbing it on their paws it sounds ok as long as they aren't licking it off as that might defeat the purrpuss.laugh out loud
