Your doggo’s coat may help them manage it a bit better than the rest of us, but prolonged exposure is still a problem. This means that they are at risk of being sunburnt, especially in exposed areas like the nose, ears, and belly. Worse than that, they are also susceptible to the risk of serious health issues like hair loss, and even skin cancer. It is for this reason that you are always encouraged to use dog sunscreen.
Did you know that dogs are just as much at risk of getting skin cancer as we are? Seriously! Most of them are strongly susceptible to skin damage from sunburns, but not many people think that. And with the temperatures steadily rising, as we get closer to the spring/summer seasons, this can also mean more visits to the veterinarian if we are not careful.
