About Safe Paw

Pet Safe Ice Melt You Can Trust

Safe Paw was born out of the desire to have an environmentally aware solution for melting ice. The goal was to find the safest formula, one that excels at melting ice without harming people, pets or the planet. Safe Paw is ice melt with a conscience, and it contains no harmful chemicals like salt or chlorides, which can cause problems for our furry friends. It works at very low temperatures, won’t damage vegetation, and can be used on any surface without conductive or corrosive properties.

Why Is Safe Paw the Right Choice?

Safe Paw gives you peace of mind when using it around pets and your home. Made from safe proprietary compounds that do not contain harmful chemicals or salts, it won’t cause temperature swings when it makes contact with ice or snow. Salt and chloride-based ice melters cause the temperature to quickly rise, which can burn paws on contact. Those other ice melts can also be toxic if ingested—a common issue when pets lick their wounds.

Safe Chemistry in a Small Package

Safe Paw pellets have a bright color that’s highly visible, and it can be used wherever ice can form. It is useful anywhere that can become dangerously slippery, including concrete steps, driveways, wooden decks, stone pavers, metal ramps and more. Once the granules have completely dissolved on the surface, a barrier forms to prevent water molecules from re-binding into ice. Safe Paw is intelligent chemistry at work and a great solution for people and pets!

Used and Recommended by Veterinarians

It’s no wonder that Safe Paw is used and recommended by vets, animal hospitals and shelters. Unlike other ice melts, Safe Paw does not burn your pet’s paws or cause intestinal damage from ingestion. Our trusted companions don’t know to avoid regular ice melts or understand the damage they can do, so it’s up to us to protect them by choosing a health-conscious ice melt like Safe Paw.

The Better Ice Melt

Concentrated Formula

A little goes a long way—you can use ½  as much as you would use with salt, and Safe Paw lasts 72 hours on the surface.

Safe for Plants, Too

Safe on vegetation and suitable for use on lawns and shrubs, it will not dry plants like salt or chloride-based melts.

Works on All Surfaces

Use it on stone, pavers, wood, brick, metal, asphalt and even properly cured concrete that’s at least 1 year old.

Flexipail, for Big Jobs

Flexipail offers 22 lbs. of economical ice melting power. Use it in a spreader or to refill an empty Safe Paw jug.

Did Damage

Applied as recommended 4 times during the last winter season. It caused $800 in lawn damage and damaged portions of my sidewalk. Attempted to contact the company and nothing but crickets.

Fantastic Item

The SafePaw deicer works very well, and that's in New England, where we have serious icing problems. I can spread it all over the deck and driveway and the dogs have had zero problems with it. As to Chewy, I cannot begin to express my satisfaction with them.

Safe Paw results

I used Safe Paw on some ice at the top of the driveway and although it took longer than rock salt, it worked and the driveway was dry by the end of the afternoon

Possibly stains fabrics

The de-icer works pretty well but, unfortunately, if you track it in and get it on your rug or upholstery, it discolors the materials. Hoping it's not permanently stained.
