Are ice melts dangerous to your animals?

As winter sets in, it's important to be mindful of the hazards that come with icy conditions. One often overlooked danger is the use of ice melts on sidewalks and roads. While these products help combat slippery surfaces, they can pose a serious threat to your furry friends.


The chemicals in ice melts can be harmful to your dog's delicate paw pads. Exposure to these substances can lead to irritation, burns, and even poisoning if ingested during grooming. Additionally, these chemicals can be tracked into your home, further exposing your pet to their harmful effects.


To keep your canine companion safe this winter, consider using pet-safe alternatives, such as salt-free deicers or sand, and always wipe your dog's paws after a walk to remove any potentially harmful residue.
