Small chips and cracks on garage floor

Just wondering if I should seal small chips I have on my garage? Right in front of the garage door, there's lots of what looks like someone got an axe and hit the concrete many times causing small divdets. Not sure if the ice forming at the end of the driveway in the winter is the cause ?

Any suggestions on how to fill it?

You can try a concrete filler like this one: https://www.rona.ca/en/concrete-patch-repair-38l

I find that stuff works better than the plastic concrete fillers because it's an actual gritty emulsion that dries to a hard concrete texture, not a smooth plastic substance. The issue will be colour matching unpainted concrete though. You could try mixing in a little colouring, but it will change as it dries, and it's very difficult to match both the texture and the colour of old concrete.

Is this the part that is visible when the garage door is shut and subject to weather? It could be your choice of deicing salt.

Yup that's the part exposed to exterior weather. I thought about that too but I don't see any salt on that part.

I'll try the concrete mix and see what happens

You wont see the salt... The salt is put down in the winter and eventually damages the concrete. Not right away, but over time.
