Now that WINTER is here - BE ALERT of what your dog is walking on and licking when on outdoor walks !
Step 5: Protect your pets
(excerpt from Consumer's Report: Best rock salt and ice melts review Use Consumer Reports' five steps for smarter, safer deicing)
Always wipe your dog’s paws with a moist towel after walking outside on snowy days, says Louise Murray, D.V.M., vice president of the ASPCA Animal Hospital. Trim the hair between the dog’s toes to reduce mineral collection, or put doggie booties on all four paws as extra protection.
Don’t let your dog lick ice melt or drink from puddles or slush pools when its outside. Even very limited amounts of 100 percent sodium chloride can be lethal to dogs.
Consider using a salt-free ice melt, such as Safe Paws or Morton Safe-T-Pet. But even those products could cause issues. “People are better off using these, but just saying it’s ‘pet safe’ doesn’t guarantee anything,” Murray said. Even urea (carbonyl diamide), which is considered safe—and is an ingredient in Morton Safe-T-Pet and a modified ingredient in Safe Paws—can cause drooling and vomiting if ingested. Purchase an ice melt with colored pellets or granules to make it easier to identify in the snow.
