Like if this guide is helpful

Sodium chloride most commonly known as salt is with a doubt the most famed solution for de-icing throughout the winter. Suitable for chips, de-icing and tequila salt has many uses which can be surprising. However using salt as a de-icer is not necessarily the best idea to execute this winter.
Although salt is the most readily available de-icing product because of its large quantity on the planet it does not make it the best solution for removing ice and snow. As well as having negative effects on the plantation in your garden and the environment in general the compound of sodium chloride can also have severe effects on your pets.
Though you don't directly feed your pets the salt they do walk through the salt on a regular basis. Then they lick their paws. A common enough habit for them to keep themselves clean but the extra salt they are picking up from their paws can have negative effects on their internal organs.
As a beginning symptom salt poisoning can induce vomiting. Although this used to be a standard practise with vets to help with certain ailments it is bad for your pets' health. Too much salt can also lead to lethargy and walking like they are drunk. Although these are mild symptoms they are noticeable.
Compared to these mild symptoms of salt poisoning there are some more severe outcomes of the poisoning. Possible injuries in the kidneys can occur as well as seizures and in worst case scenarios death.
