Just like people, dogs can get skin cancers that can be affected by prolonged or repeated sun exposure As with many questions though, the answer to the question of whether or not to apply sunscreen to your dog isn’t exactly straightforward. Whether or not your dog needs sunscreen can be influenced by many different factors. Including, amongst others…
- How much time your dog spends outside, and during what part of the day?
- Where do you live? (factors: altitude; hours of daylight; etc.)
- What color is your dog’s coat?
- How thick and full is their coat?
