Every winter, after every bit of snow or ice, the sidewalks of New York are "de-iced" with salt or that blue stuff or whatever.

Every winter, after every bit of snow or ice, my poor little Shih Tzu can't go two feet before he starts to limp in agony. I have to then rush him upstairs to wash his paws. The only way I can walk him is to bring him to the alley nearby where the pavement hasn't been treated, but it's close to impossible to get him to use that area since he goes to the curb or the corner every other day of the year.

I've tried MushPaws (?) but it definitely was not designed for long-haired dogs (what a mess!), and he won't go a step in those silly booties.


Does anyone have any ideas? Who would I contact to change this? Are there any alternatives for de-icing? Remember, if they're too pricey, neither my landlord nor NYC will go for the additional expense since their bank accounts are far more important than the wellbeing of the city's dogs.

Sorry to rant like this, but it gets me so angry. I can't believe I'm the only one with this problem.

Any help would, as always, be greatly appreciated.

Christina :)
