We like to keep things safe for everyone when it gets icy outside. We had to find a way to effectively melt the ice AND keep things safe for our pets in the process. That's why we carry Paw Thaw Pet Friendly Ice Melter. It was exactly what we were looking for - a safe, biodegradable ice melter option that will not harm pets. It works extremely well, and the non-hygroscopic formula is less harmful to your grass, trees and other vegetation. As an added bonus, it is water soluble and odorless. Should it get tracked inside your home or automobile, it will not harm carpets or footwear. The pellets themselves also provide added traction control as they work. For us, keeping this product around when the temperature drops is a must for our home and store.
