New York City Gets Cold, Hard Proof That It's Never Too Early to Start Winterizing Your Dog

 |  Oct 31st 2011  |   1 Contribution


On Saturday, two days before Halloween, New York City got several inches of snow, surpassing a meteorological record set in 1925.

In case NYC Dogsters needed cold, hard proof that it's never too early to start preparing for winter, this was certainly it. Smart Dogsters were prepared with pet-safe ice melt, so their best friends' paws wouldn't feel the brrrn of corrosive salt on snowy days.

There are plenty of corrosive ice melters containing salt — but only a handful of salt-free brands. For Dogsters who are serious about their pets' safety and comfort, it's definitely worth seeking out the paw-friendly brands.

The leader in safe, salt-free ice melt is the same name that — ironically — has become synonymous with salt: Morton. Yes, the company famous for its salt that doesn't cake up in humid weather - the "When It Rains, It Pours" salt - offers a salt-free ice melt that does its job of melting ice and keeping walkways safely un-slippery without causing injury or discomfort to pets.

Read about Morton Safe-T-Pet Ice Melt here.

Nontoxic Safe-T-Pet Ice Melt by Morton melts below 10 degrees F, so its equally as effective as those salty ice melts that cause injury and irritation todogs.

The greenish-hued crystalscome in an 8-pound easy-pour jug with a resealable lid. And just like the original Morton Salt everyone knows and trusts,salt-free Safe-T-Pet wont cake or clumpwhenthe weather turns damp: When it snows, it pours!

Safe-T-Pet has even earned the approval of the ASPCA, which is partnering with Morton in a public-service campaignto raise awareness of wintertime pet safety. The ASPCA has declared December 22 National Keep Pets Safe in Winter Day. Between now and January 31, 2012, Morton will donate $1 to the ASPCA for every unique Facebook fan Like it receives.

Please find Morton Salt on Facebook and click Like so the ASPCA can continue to educate pet lovers on the importance of winter pet safety, and help reduce winter-weather-related pet injuries. And please dont forget to lay ina goodsupply of pet-safe ice melt before theres yet another blanket of snow on the ground, and the store shelves are bare!
