If you’re having sunny weather it can be oh-so enticing to run outside and have a good time. There are so many things you can do from throwing a Frisbee or stick to hanging out at the beach.
There is a danger though, that your dog will get sunburn, heat exhaustion or even heat stroke. The good news is that you can prevent these things from happening to your dog.
Sunburn Protection For Dogs
You might not have considered it before but the sun can burn your dog. Areas that are particularly sensitive are the nose, ears, and lips. You can try to keep your dog in the shade between the sunniest hours of the day.
These are usually between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. If you are not able to stay in the shade you can put sunscreen on your dog’s nose and other sensitive areas.
You should not put sunscreen on your dog’s lips as it is not safe. You just need to keep an eye on them to be sure there is no sunburn. Any blistering needs to be examined by a veterinarian.
