Keep Pets Safe this Winter with Salt-Free Ice Melters

Cosmo braves the Atlanta snow last winter
Snow and ice are a bit of a novelty in our neck of the woods, in Atlanta. But for many folks, and especially those in the Northeast this weekend, ice can pose a danger to you and your pets.

The salt that you may use to keep  from slipping and sliding can also be harmful to your pet. To help keep pets safe this winter, consider a salt-free ice melter.

Morton Safe-T-Pet has introduced a new salt and chloride free formula this year which is safer for pets' paws and stomachs than other salt/chloride based melters. Safe-T-Pet can be purchased online or at Walmart and other major national retailers. Find a store located near you.

Safe Paw also offers a salt-free product, developed in 1996 to answer a demand for an environmentally sound product that's also safe for pets and children. Safe Paw is sold a most major pet stores and at many online stores, grocery shops and national retail chains. Find a store located near you.

How you can help keep more pets safe with just one "Like"


Morton Salt and the ASPCA have launched a Keep Pets Safe in Winter campaign, and as part of this program, Morton is making a donation of $20,000 to the ASPCA to help keep pets safe in homes and in shelters. In addition, for every "like" received on Morton's Facebook page from now until January 31, 2012, Morton will donate $1 to the ASPCA, up to $55,000. The additional funding from Morton will be used by the ASPCA to raise awareness about the importance of proper winter pet care and safety.

The campaign will culminate with "National Keep Pets Safe in Winter Day" on December 22.

After you "Like" Morton come on back for the Saturday Pet Blogger Hop!

  1. Thank you for the advice, Cosmo. You are looking adorable in the snow. We're getting our first snowstorm of the season today. So this is a very timely post!

  2. This is a good post! I live in an area without sidewalks, so we have to walk in the road. And the city uses salt on all the roads. Oh, yeah and it snow a ton here!

    Don't forget to enter our giveaway!

  4. Hi there! We live just up the road from you in Tennessee! I want to share our experience from last year. Jen went to buy some salt-free de-icer last year (we had lots of snow also) and a national pet store chain had the stuff marked up VERY high. Jen then went to Walmart and found the same product for 1/4 the price there. It made Jen sad because she was afraid people wouldn't buy the safer product because of the high price. So our warning is to shop around, or buy BEFORE winter and have on hand before they jack up the prices.
