With ice and snow here, you need to be careful about the kind of ice melt you buy.
If your dogs will be walking on the area you will apply the melt, please get a brand that is labeled “pet friendly”. Last year we bought a brand called Road Runner and were pleased with it.
I found a 20-pound bag of Road Runner at Lowes this week for $9.34.
Unless you are willing to wash your dog’s feet, or dress four feet into snow booties, be sure to buy some pet safe ice melt. However, you live in southern Florida, like my cousin, your dog would prefer you spend that money on treats.
