The Wall Street Journal Recently Published an Article on Deicers and Pet Safety Entitled: “The Safest Ice Melt Products for Your Pet in the Snow.”
To protect your dog on winter walks, veterinarians recommend covering paws with booties and wiping them off with a wet cloth as soon as you get back into the house. It is also important to make sure your dog has access to water if it may have ingested ice melt, veterinarians say, as harm is more likely if a dog is dehydrated.”
The Wall Street Journal article further states: “The small amount a dog might lick off its paws won’t cause more than drooling or vomiting, but a couple of mouthfuls can raise salt levels in the brain and cause seizures or even death, says Ahna Brutlag, associate director of veterinary services and senior veterinary toxicologist at Pet Poison Helpline, affiliated with the University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine. “When we see serious poisoning, it is almost always dogs, and it is almost always when the dog has chewed through the bag,” she says.”
