Sunscreen for Pets

If your pets spend a lot of time in the sun, do ensure that they are protected from the harmful UV rays with pet-safe sunscreen. Pets with pre-existing skin conditions (e.g. Cushing's disease, discoid lupus), hairless breeds (e,g, Chinese Crested dogs; Sphinx cats), white-coated pets and pets with pink noses/ears/belly/groin are more at risk of getting sunburnt. 

Similar to humans, animals with skin that has been sunburned are more likely to develop skin cancer; therefore, sun protection is extremely important. Phone us at (06) 358 8675 or come into our clinic to find out about about our pet-safe sunscreen products.
