Safe Paw Ice Melter is a pet-friendly way to take care of snow and ice.
January 6, 2012 12:34 am | By Zootoo Editor Flinn D.
As any pet owner living in a snowy environment can attest, many salt products used on salt and ice can be painful for your dog’s tender paws. Although washing your dog’s pads after a walk in winter weather can help to lessen irritation and prevent larger complications, traditional methods of melting snow and ice can still be dangerous for pets. Safe Paw Ice Melter allows owners to melt snow and ice from their sidewalks and driveways without being concerned about their pets’ paws.
The Safe Paw Ice Melter uses a formula that is non-toxic to both pets and children — another reassuring reason to make the switch from products that use harsher chemicals. And Safe Paw seemed to be as effective at melting ice and snow as competing products. Another benefit of Safe Paw Ice Melter is that the product is also friendlier to the environment, allowing pet owners to go green while keeping their animals’ safety in mind.
Safe Paw Ice Melter can be more expensive than other salt products, but a little time spent comparison shopping can help to bring down the cost of the melt, especially through some online retailers. And if you take into account the cost and energy of safely maintaining and treating your pet’s paws without a pet-safe ice melt, the Safe Paw Ice Melter can even seem like a bargain.
Pros: Non-toxic for pets; helps to prevent irritation and pain in paws.
Cons: Can be more expensive than non-pet-friendly products.

I clear a path on my wood deck to the yard then put this down. It does not work as good as salt but helps when the snow melts and freeses again. My dog does not slide off the deck now. It does work if using alot.
Pros: better for the paws
Cons: cost alot to keep pets safe

Our shelter uses this product to melt ice on the porches and walkways. Here in the Chicago area, the ice and snow are awful. This helps keep all the people and dogs around the shelter buildings safe.
Pros: Safe for dogs paws.
