Dog owners are all too familiar with this scenario:the meteorologists are calling for snow and the salt trucks are out on the roads laying down pounds and pounds of that chunky salt. You take your dog out for a walk, and as soon as their paw touches the salt, your pup whimpers in pain. While you can’t change the salt your town lays down, you can use a pet-safe ice melt on your driveway and sidewalks to provide a pain-free walk for your dog. Safe Paw ice melter is non-toxic, safe for animals and its timed-release formulation helps prevent re-icing for up to three days.
