Dogs and Sunscreen

Ms. Jane asks:
Since you live in a sunny region of the country, do you worry about your pups getting sunburned? And do you use sunscreen?
Mother:
I always keep an eye on Lily since she is white and does get pink around her nose. I have never applied sunscreen to my dogs since I don't allow them to bake in the sun. They always alternate sun, shade, sun shade.
There are some good facts on the French Bulldog Rescue Network site regarding dogs and sunburn.

  1. We have to watch Doc as he is mainly white and has no sun sense! we have a doggie safe sunscreen and use it when needed..our summers are brutal. We always check his pale bits and general skin health anyway and I do make him get inside when the sun is fierce..so far at nearly 13 apart from some old age warts all looks good :) loves Fozziemum xx

  4. that's a good question... I think it's better to sleep in the shade of a tree instead to get grilled like a hot dog :o)

  7. We don't stay in the hot sun long enough, and living in MN, the danger is only certain times of the year.
