Did You Know That There Are Sunscreens For Your Dog? Totally A Shocker
You know I am crazy about my dogs! Kramer and Eddy are my babies. When it gets crazy hot outside, like it is right now, I get up early in the morning to take the pups out. When I get home, I make sure they walk on the side of the parking lot where there is shade, so they don’t burn their paws. In addition, I do what most folks do to keep their pets healthy in the summer; give them lots of fresh water, make sure they eat well, give them heartworm meds, and flea and tick meds. However, I had no clue that you could get sunscreen for your dog!
According to swnsdigital, a new study of 2,000 American pet owners revealed that most go the extra mile to care for their pet. But 15% apply sunscreen on their pet. Now, I figured you couldn’t put human sunscreen on animals, so I Googled ‘sunscreen for dogs’. And I got lots of results!
The Spruce Pets has an article on ‘The 5 Best Dog Sunscreens’. The article says that dogs are at risk as humans are if they are in the sunshine too long. They can get sunburned, which can lead to skin cancer . Kramer and Eddy don’t really play outside often. When we go outside, it’s usually for a quick walk and a potty break. Although, if you’re dog plays outside lots or if you take your dog to the beach, you may want to consider using sunscreen.
