Morton Salt and BarkPost have teamed up to spread the word on protecting your dog’s paws this winter! Morton Salt’s Safe-T-Pet® is a salt-and-chloride free ice melt alternative. The veterinarian-recommended formula causes less irritation to paws than plain salt.
After the first snowfall here in New York City, I saw just as many dogs protesting to walk across the street as I saw playing in the snow.
The same seems to go for other pup parents around the neighborhood who I’ve seen picking up their full-grown Doodles to avoid salty patches of ice melt on the ground.
To help avoid this whole “pick up your 50-lb. dog every 10 feet” scenario, Morton offers a milder ice melt alternative. Safe-T-Pet is a salt-and-chloride free ice melt that lets you worry less about your dog and more about how you’re going to get your car out of that snow-turned-solid-ice-tundra.
Here’s How It Works:
Step 1. Evenly sprinkle Morton Safe-T-Pet on snowy or icy surfaces.
Thanks to Morton Salt, I was able to try Morton Safe-T-Pet on my own steps. And since Levi walks on other salty sidewalks besides my steps, I wanted to give bags of Safe-T-Pet to my dog-loving neighbors so that all the neighborhood pups’ paws are less irritated as well! I’m a handwritten note type of person so I also included a note from Levi’s perspective about why the ice melt they choose to use matters.
