The WSJ recently published an article (“The Safest Ice-Melt Products for Your Pet in the Snow“) regarding your pets’ safety with regards to rock salt and deicers. Laura Johannes writes that rock salt and deicers containing calcium chloride can be harmful to your pet. Her research found that veterinarians recommend covering paws with booties and wiping them off with a wet cloth as soon as you get back into the house. And if they have ingested deicer, ensure that your pet has water available, as more harm is likely for a dehydrated animal. Symptoms include vomiting and drooling for small amounts, seizures and death can occur for larger amounts (i.e., a couple of mouthfuls). And if there is any question as to the severity of your pets health or the amount ingested, please call your local veterinarian.
