Kelly's Dog Blog — Don't Forget the Sunscreen — For Your Dog!

Just like us, dogs can get burned from sun exposure

August 2, 2019

We all know the importance of sunscreen as a preventative against wrinkles and skin cancer, but did you know dogs are susceptible to skin cancer as well? Short-haired, close-

shaven, and light-colored dogs are especially prone to sunburns. The tender skin of snouts, noses, ears, and tails is also exposed to the UV rays. 

Not all pet stores carry dog sunscreen, so check out your options online. 

Most dogs love the outdoors — the beach especially — so keep them hydrated and protected.
