MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - People aren't the only ones who need to be careful when it comes to ice. Pets do as well, and Mares-Z-Doats in Marquette has just what you need.
Normally, they carry a pet-friendly “ice melter.” But they're currently out of stock. However, they do have dog booties and alternative “ice melters” people should use in moderation.
They also recommend people buying a pair of yak tracks or boots, too.
"A lot of times towards the end of the season, a lot of people are excited about winter going away and they think they don't need things like an ice melter lying around, but usually it's the end of the season where the ice is really bad, and a lot of ice melters just aren't available anymore,” said Jennifer Hallinen, the Manager of Mares-Z-Doats.
Due to this Mares-Z-Doats recommends people get an earlier rather than later start on these necessary purchases.
