I was wondering if you could post a friendly reminder to the neighbors to be careful what they use on the sidewalks to melt snow. A lot of snow melt products can burn the pads on a dogs foot, causing a lot of pain and limping. I was walking my dog yesterday and ended up carrying him most of the way home because he stepped in chemical snow melt that burned him. Carrying a 50 lb dog is no small feat!
I'm sure that many home-owners who aren't dog owners just don't realize that what they're using is causing harm, so I thought it was worth a post. I did a quick search online and there's plenty of pet-safe snow melt product for sale. For my part, I'll get some booties for my dog, but dog-safe sidewalks would be greatly appreciated.
