Winter Weather In Denver: Pet Safe Ice Melt Solutions For Heavy Snowfall

Ice Melt Safe For Pets

DENVER – Wednesday will be the warmest day of the year so far in Denver with at least 70 degrees. Then winter quickly returns starting Wednesday evening.

The last time Denver reached 70 degrees was in early November so it’s been more than four months since the city has been as warm as the weather is expected to be on Wednesday.

Then changes quickly arrive Wednesday evening when a strong cold front reaches the Front Range. Temperatures on Thursday will be at least 35 degrees colder on Thursday along with gusty northerly winds that will make it feel even colder.

The front will cause light rain to develop by late evening on Wednesday followed by a change to all snow before 2 a.m. Thursday. Snow showers are then expected especially over the southern and western suburbs of Denver through the Thursday morning commute. Locations farther north including Fort Collins, Loveland, and Greeley may not get much if any snow.

Snow accumulation will be under 2 inches for most areas but some areas south and west like Castle Rock, Ken Caryl, Morrison, Genesee, Golden, and Boulder could get up to 3 inches.

Using Ice Melt Solutions Safe For Your Pets

While everyone is worried about how much and when it will snow, people with children and pets at home have one more issue to worry about. They are busy hunting for pet-safe ice melt solutions. The concern is real because the icy pavement and driveways can be dangerous for pets, and so can some ice melt.

Some of the best products you’ve heard are not safe to use. Most of them use some or the other form of rock salt in the form of magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, or potassium chloride. These chloride-based products are not safe to use and cause problems like skin irritation, eyes, nose and lung burning, and nausea if ingested.

Gaia Enterprises Inc. delivers 100% pet-safe and environmentally friendly winter products. Safe Paw, our flagship product, is the #1 selling pet-safe ice melt that does not harm pets, safe if ingested, and safe on all types of concrete.

Even though you may be using a pet-safe ice melt solution, your neighbors and municipality may not be. Therefore, here’s what you must do –

1- Wash and dry their paws after every walk. Use lukewarm water and dry them using a towel.

2- Use Dog boots. It may take some time to get your dog used to the booties, but it’s totally worth a try.

3- Always check the label for the ingredients. Do not buy a product that has salt or chloride in any form (Magnesium chloride, potassium chloride, calcium magnesium acetate, calcium chloride, calcium carbonate).

4- Dogs should be prevented from eating ice melt when taken out for a walk.

5- Store ice melt safely so that your pet can’t get into it.
