Protect your pet from the sun!

June 2023

In dogs and cats, this mainly affects the ears, the nose, the area around the eyes and the back. In animals that like to lie on their backs in the sun, the belly is also at risk of sunburn.
Protect your animals with shady places and sunscreens.
Not basically every white animal needs sunscreen in the form of creams. However, in case of pre-existing conditions or hypersensitivity, you should specifically protect your animals from further damage.
First aid for animal sunburn: Cooling compresses or skin-soothing ointments can alleviate initial symptoms. If it is a very severe burn and/or the area is infected, the veterinarian should be contacted.
Pre-existing conditions make the skin sensitive, and sun exposure can even worsen an existing condition in some cases.
Thus, conscientious sun protection is essential in animals with autoimmune skin diseases. Also, skin areas that were previously hairy and suddenly become bald, such as scar tissue after surgery or injury, should be monitored and specially protected if necessary.
