Urea based ice melts are generally the ones labeled as safe for use around pets. However, with a practical working temperature of around -3.9°C / 25°F, urea is not a very effective ice melting product. Whereas an icemleter such as GroundWorks Natural™ Icemelter will go down to – 23°C / -9°F, it melts the ice as much as it protects your pets’ paws.
Moreover, when urea washes off of driveways, it often ends up in the most nearby stream or river. Urea contains nitrogen and when released into the environment turns to ammonia, which can be quite toxic to aquatic life even in small amounts.
GroundWorks is UREA FREE!
GroundWorks Natural™ Icemelter is a pet-friendly icemelter, and it does not contain urea (sometimes listed as Carbonyl Diamide or Carbamide Resin), as Urea is very harmful to the environment even with very little amount.
So when it comes to pet-safe icemelter, eco-friendly GroundWorks Natural™ Icemelter is your top choice!
