Today the Kansas City metro area is experiencing another blast from old man winter.  We are receiving our fair share of snow at Wayside and our awesome facilities staff is busy shoveling the walks and clearing drives and parking lots for visitors.  When winter weather hits, most people go right for the salt to treat ice and snow covered areas.  But because this common ice remedy poses a real health risk to pets, our staff depends on Safe Paws.  Today, is no exception!

Salt based products used to melt ice contain sodium chloride or potassium chloride which heats up quickly (to 175 degrees) when exposed to water, ice and freezing temperatures.  When your pet walks in the treated areas, the crystal salt pellets can very easily get stuck in the fur between your dog’s toes.  When these pellets come into contact with water, it can burn the pads of their paws, mouth and digestive tract. 

Safe Paws was developed by a chemical engineer “to eliminate the health and environmental problems.”  Safe Paws does not contain any salt and is made of crystalline amide core infused special glycols that are non-corrosive and have a two-way time-released action.

Safe Paws Ice Melter is available at Wayside Waifs for $16.50/gallon.  This is $2.50-$3.00 less than most pet supply stores.  Not to mention, all of the proceeds help Wayside in their mission to save the lives of thousands of abandoned, abused and homeless pets. 

Keep all members of your family safe this winter season and come in today to pick up your supply of Safe Paws!
