3 Ways To Avoid Pet Injuries In Winter

Pet Safe Ice Melt

As a pet owner, we understand the anxiety you must go through every winter. The constant worry of paw burns and abrasions, cuts because of unsafe deicers or ice melts, and the increasing medical bills, or visit to the vet clinics, if needed. Yes, winters are pretty trying for pets. They cannot walk freely, play with their favorite toys, or go to the dog park for a stroll and activities. 

With multiple ice melt and deicers in the market, choosing the right one becomes quite a task. Well, before proceeding further, let’s take a quick look –  

How Can We Keep Our Pets Safe? 


Some dogs are more prone to catch a cold than others. All dogs react differently to temperature changes. Some may adapt to cold weather quickly, while others will take time. You need to know your dogs’ limits to ensure they are warm during peak winters. A few dogs who may face a problem during winters are Shih Tzu, Great Dane, Bulldog, Chihuahua, Boxer, Boston Terrier, etc. These dogs love warmth, so it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Keep Their Paws Clean

We often take our pets for granted. While they wipe their paws and lick it quite often, we have to ensure they are clean as well. Several owners invest in winter boots to keep their feet clean. The biggest reason why dogs fall ill during winters is ice melt. Most of them are harmful to their digestive system. Cleaning their paws clean after a walk will help in avoiding this problem.

Eco-Friendly Deicers 

The biggest mistake pet parents make is to use deicers that that are not pet safe or pet friendly. Like we mentioned above, pets are susceptible to a stomach infection or digestive problems because of wrong ice melt products. Using eco-friendly ice melts, such as Safe Paw deicer, helps overcome this predicament and prepares you better for winters. It does not harm your pets in any way, does not burn their paws, and enables you to sail through winters.

How To Melt Ice On Concrete? 

– Use not-so-environment-friendly ice melts, such as rock salt, potassium chloride, calcium chloride, magnesium acetate, blends, etc. These may lower the freezing point; however, there is a high chance of spoiling your concrete and vegetation in the long run.  

– Several people use homemade temporary solutions to melt ice as it is ‘considered’ safe on concrete. However, the flip side of it is that it creates a mess and does not help melt the ice for a longer duration. 

– Another way to melt ice on concrete is by using a Safe Paw deicer that is 100% chloride-free and an excellent traction agent.
