You and your dog should enjoy the summer; however, you need to be safe and proactive regarding sunburns. Let EzyDog help you with a Dog Rashie to protect your furry friend from a painful sunburn or worse.
EzyDog’s Dog Rashies Keep your Dog from Getting a Sunburn
The fun-in-the-sun months have arrived and it is time to think about sun protection for your pet. Just like humans, our pets can also suffer from the damaging effects of the sun, such as a sunburn or skin cancer. The best preventative measure is to keep your pet from the sun’s bright rays between the peak hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. However, this is not always possible.
There are other precautions you can take if your dog is in the sun between the peak hours, like applying sunscreen to your pet. However, you need to select one that is designed specifically for your cat or dog. Most sunscreen lotions or sprays for humans contain zinc oxide, but zinc oxide is toxic to dogs, so don’t use a lotion for a human on your dog. Constant exposure to the sun can result in dogs getting sunburns, skin ulcers and/or skin cancer. Some breeds of dogs are more susceptible to sunburns, especially those that are fair skinned, short hair and light colored noses. In addition, dogs with shorter legs are more susceptible to sunburns because their bellies are closer to the ground and it is easier for their tummy area to get sunburned from the sunlight reflecting off the ground.
Another way to prevent your dog from getting sunburned is to keep your pet’s fur at least half an inch long. You also want to protect your dog’s eyes by having them wear sunglasses, especially designed for your dog. The last method to keep your dog from getting burned is to use protective clothing like the Dog Rashies from EzyDog. It is 94º today and Big Red would definitely get a sunburn, if he was outside too long. When we take him to the beach, he wears his EzyDog Rashies.
