Pet-safe and Plant-safe Ice Melt

Dec 15, 2020 John McGrann Tips & Advice

As winter approaches we often hear questions about pet-friendly, plant-friendly and surface-friendly ice melt products, especially from our customers in Downtown Lancaster where dogs are encountering harmful products on city sidewalks.

We offer two ice-melt products: MAG Pellets and Cope Performance Blend:

  • MAG Pellets are the most pet-friendly option. They are more expensive than traditional ice melt, but much safer for pets, better for trees & shrubs, and less damaging to brick and concrete sidewalks. MAG Pellets are $27 per 50-pound bag.
  • Cope Performance Blend is more affordable, still very safe for pets, and continues to melt at temperatures as low as 25-degrees below zero. Cope Performance Blend is $18.90 per 50-pound bag.

To compare these products alongside other more traditional ice-melt solutions, see the chart below courtesy of The Cope Company, then stop in to prepare for winter’s worst!
