CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- The cold weather could take a toll on your pet's paws. That's why it's important to use the right ice melt.

Certain types can burn the pads on a dog's paws. But, most places sell ice melt which is pet safe.

It's the kind the Champaign County Humane Society is looking for. If your dog walks on salt and you're not sure if it's safe, the best thing to do is rinse off his or her paws once you're home.
