3. Ice melting chemicals
Nowadays, a lot of people use ice melting chemicals on paths and sidewalks. They burn and injure dog’s paws and are poisonous if eaten. Though, the pet rarely eats the recent ice melting chemical, it can easily eat it when licking the snow from the paws.
The decision is to keep your dog on a leash when going out and wash its paws when coming inside the house. Or, even the better option is to purchase safe ice chemicals which are accessible now in the shops. Companies that provide food for pets also produce boots to keep their paws protected.
