Practical advice tip #4 :

Whereas they are well-known in humans, the dangers associated with sunlight are underestimated with reference to pets. Thanks to their coat,pets possess indeed a natural protective barrier against sunburns. However, it is important to remember that certain areas are more exposed than others. For instance, that is the case for the nose, the ears or the abdomen. Animals with light-coloured coats, without hairs or with scarce hair, or that have just been clipped are also highly sensitive. The same applies to dogs and cats that are suffering from certain pathologies (depigmentation, etc.) or who have scars. In all those cases, the application of a sunscreen (dedicated to your pet!) with a high protection factor is strongly recommended.
