"Dogs either ingest the ice melt pellets or they get frozen into their paws. Later when they are inside at a higher temperature the dogs lick their paws. Some of the salts can heat up as high as 175 degrees and not only burn their skin but their mouth and digestive system."
Safe-Paw is a dual-effect compound composed of crystalline amide core infused with special glycols. The non-corrosive compound gives it a two-way time-release action.
The liquid component starts melting ice instantly while breaking its surface tension. Safe Paw leaves an invisible protective shield that prevents ice from sticking to the surface for up to three days.
