Sunscreen for Dogs - They Need Protection Too!

Sunscreen for Dogs - They Need Protection Too! DogsizedSunscreen 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.

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.

    My father's border collie is constantly harassed by mosquitoes and deer flies. Are there any dog-safe products for Charlie?
