2 Reasons Why I Use Safe Paw In Indiana

Safe Paw Pet Safe Ice Melt

The 2020 Winter Outlook released by The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts that central Indiana has equal chances for below normal, normal, and above-normal temperatures for the winter season. For central Indiana, odds favor above-normal precipitation for the winter season.

As the season starts, we start worrying about winter storms, chilly winds, and snow. We must clear snow/ice from roofs and driveways to safeguard the buildings and avoid slips and falls. 

Many people use rock salt to melt the snow. Ice melt is also a popular choice for managing snow and enjoying hassle-free winters. Although there are many ice melt options in the market, I use Pet Safe.

Two Reasons why I use Safe Paw in Indiana

1. Dog-Friendly Ice Melt –

Did you know most ice melts use chemicals like calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, etc? But let me tell you how lethal these solutions are for your pets-

Rock Salt/ Sodium chloride

Let’s start with the most common ice melt- rock salt.

Mild ingestion of rock salt can lead to vomiting and diarrhea etc. Dogs eating large amounts of this type of ice melt can develop hypernatremia with central nervous system signs (like dehydration, tachycardia, tachypnea, hyperthermia, and death). Large ingestions of sodium chloride can lead to sodium toxicosis, and a dose of 4g/kg of sodium chloride can be lethal to dogs.  

Potassium chloride:

Another common chemical used in ice melt is potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a severe irritant and can cause gastrointestinal irritation to the point of hemorrhagic vomiting or diarrhea.

Magnesium chloride:

Ingestion of ice melts containing magnesium chloride can be irritating and result in gastrointestinal upset. If the dog has any renal disease, then ingesting larger quantities of such ice melt can cause hypermagnesemia.

Safe Paw, on the other hand, is a salt-free and chemical-free compound and is made from natural ingredients. It is a unique and patented dual-effect compound made up of a crystalline amide core infused with special glycols. Since there are no harmful chemicals in its composition, it’s a dog-safe ice melt that does not harm your pet, corrode your concrete, asphalt, or any other metal furniture.

2. Safe For Concrete –

Salt-based or chemical-based ice melt is not only harmful to pets but also damages the concrete. Safe Paw is a salt-free, chloride-free dog-friendly ice melt that does its job without harming your concrete. It can work at low temperatures and is equally effective. Another good thing with Safe Paw is, it comes with the preventive Teflon effect. After your floor has been purged of the frosty deposits, this effect creates an invisible layer on the deiced surface, which makes it easy for shoveling. 

The Winter season can be hard on us and our pets too. Slippery and icy streets, poisonous snowmelt all around, and freezing weather can harm our four-legged friends. As a caring parent, we must do what we can to make it easier for them to survive winters.
