What Happens If My Dog Eats Snow And Safe Paw?

Salt For Dogs

You may be worried that your dog eating snow is harmful, but it’s not. Snow is a natural product and dogs eat it all the time. The same goes for Safe Paw ice melt: it’s made from a naturally occurring material as well. Unlike Salt for dogs, Snow and Safe Paw are both safe for kids to eat, so you can rest assured about your pup’s health!

Salt for dogs

Are you also wondering- Can salt kill you? The answer is no. It doesn’t kill you but isn’t safe for you either.

Salt is a toxin and even small amounts can cause problems for dogs. Sodium chloride (salt) may also cause kidney damage in dogs with existing kidney disease or predisposition to developing kidney disease, so if your dog already has poor renal function, you should avoid salt altogether. The same goes for any other type of ice melt product you put on your driveway or sidewalk—if it’s not Safe Paw Ice Melt, don’t use it!
