Sunscreen for Dogs – They Need Protection Too!

sunscreen for dogsSunscreen for dogs…this might sound a bit crazy, but just like us, dogs can get sunburned and suffer from pain, peeling and skin cancer. Severe burns may also cause skin infections. So it’s possible your dog might need some sunscreen, especially if you’re going to the beach where there is a lot of sun due to sand and water reflection.

If you have a dog with a thin coat (or shaved) and pink skin, you might need to consider putting dog sunscreen on your dog (after you lather up yourself). Some breeds are more susceptible to burns, such as, Boxers, Frenchies, Bulldogs and Bull Terriers. If you have a really furry dog like a Bearded Collie or a Chow, their hair is likely going to give them enough coverage.

Make sure you use a sunscreen made for dogs. Do not use human sunscreen on them, especially if it has zinc oxide, which is toxic for dogs.

Here are 3 great Dog Sun Protection options:

When applying sunscreen on your pooch, you’ll want to put it on those areas that are prone to sunburn, e.g. nose, ears, eyelids, abdomen, groin and inside the legs. Just like with us humans, remember to reapply, especially if your dog is going in and out of the water.

Lightweight Dog Bag by Sturdi Products

SturdiBag GreenAs we’re always on the search for great dog bags / carriers, we were thrilled to discover the SturdiBag Flex-Height Carrier! The first thing you notice is how light the bag is. The SturdiBag large only weighs 2.6 pounds, despite that it has been tested to safely carry a pet up to 40 pounds and has the dimentions: 18 L x 12 H x 12 W inches. It’s by far the lightest bag we’ve seen on the market!

SturdiBag

One the key advantages of the SturdiBag is the patented flex-height design with flexible rods that allow the carrier to flex down without collapsing to conform to under seat heights. Then the bag pops back into shape when it is no longer stored under the airline seat. Many dog carriers do not have this extra support and as a result the bag does not hold its shape and the top can collapse down on your dog.

The SturdiBag is made of durable 600 denier polyester with urethane coating, which makes it very durable and water resistant. It comes in a variety of colors and is available in 5 sizes for the standard model (non-divided) and 2 sizes for the divided models. It also has pockets so you can put your dog’s leash or treats in it. There is one back storage pocket on the 5 standard models and deep side pockets on the 2 divided model. The SturdiBag is also easy to clean and completely machine washable.
SturdiBag

The SturdiBag includes:

  • Adjustable 4-point padded shoulder strap & leather hand grip
  • Retractable privacy flaps on all mesh windows
  • Seatbelt safety straps for car travel
  • Interior Comfort Pad secured by Velcro
  • Zipper Security Clips and a tether for safety and security

The SturdiBag Flex-Height Pet Carrier comes with a Comfort Pad which is covered with soft fleece. This light weight Comfort Pad is filled with a cushy, convoluted or “egg-crate” style foam that provides air circulation and superior weight distribution for support, comfort and pressure relief. The Comfort Pad may be beneficial for aging pets and/or pets with arthritic or other orthopedic problems. If your dog really likes the Comfort Pad in the SturdiBag, you can purchase additional ones to use around the house. There are various Comfort Pad cover designs and colors so you can find one that suits your home.
