Anytime your dog or cat is exposed to the sun for a period of time, sunscreen should be used. Dogs and cats can get sunburned, and they can also get skin cancer.

-Dogs and cats with fair skin and short white coats are the most at risk.

-Protect your pets with a child friendly high SPF.

-Avoid zinc-oxide based sunscreens as they can be toxic if ingested (for instance the pet manages to lick the sunscreen off).
