The Best Pet-Friendly Ice Melts

Typical ice melts can be toxic for our furry friends, causing them irritation when brought in contact and toxic relations when ingested. To help your furry friend this winter, consider investing in a pet-friendly ice melt. Here are some of our favorites:

Safe Paw Ice Melter

8 lb – $21.95
35 lb – $69.99

Safe Paw Ice Melter is a non-toxic, biodegradable, and (of course) pet-safe ice melt. The formula is twice as effective as standard rock salt and comes in pellet form. Safe Paw guarantees that its pellets can melt ice at temperatures as low as -2 degrees Fahrenheit. Plus, their formula comes with a time-release technology that prevents any re-icing from occurring for up to 72 hours. Safe Paw’s formula is fast-acting and causes zero irritation to your canine companion’s paws. Additionally, this formula comes in a bright green color that makes it easy to spot after applying – and the main ingredient is urea.

Natural Rapport Pet-Friendly Ice MeltĀ 

10 lb – $21.95
18 lb – $34.95
35 lb – $59.95

The main ingredient in Natural Rapport Pet-Friendly Ice Melt is calcium magnesium acetate (CMA) which is gentle on your pup’s paws. Their formula is also one that comes in de-icing pellets, which are easy to apply and come in a bright green coloring. Additionally, Natural Rapport is made in the USA, meaning it follows high-quality standards set by its industry. These pellets are also gentle on concrete, wood, and metal surfaces while still gaining traction for you and your furry friend.

Just For Pets Snow & Ice Melter

9 lb – $26.95
15 lb – $39.95

Just for Pets Snow & Ice Melter was developed by expert veterinarians, which should already give you a boost of confidence when it comes to its safety around animals. Their formula is not only completely salt-free, but it also is free from magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, or sodium chloride (all hazardous to your furry friend’s health and safety). The rounded pellets are also comfortable for your furry friend to walk on, and the formula is safe when ingested in small quantities.

HARRIS Safe Melt Pet Friendly Ice and Snow Melter

10 lb – $22.99
15 lb – $36.99

HARRIS’ pet-friendly ice melting solution is made up of 100% magnesium chloride, which won’t irritate or cause burning on your canine companion’s paws, nails, or skin. Their solution works immediately and is a lot less corrosive to concrete and other surfaces than some other brands due to its fine formula.

Using a pet-friendly ice melt is not only better for Fido, but it’s better for you and the environment as well.
