Just like fair-skinned people, animals with light or white extremities such as noses and ears are subject to solar dermatitis and skin cancer.
Although the incidence is low, we recommend that you take the following steps to provide your pet with the best care and the most protection:
- Keep your pet indoors as much as possible
- If you do take your pet outdoors, apply a sunscreen (PABA); level 10-15 to the light or white areas
- Limit the pet's time outdoors to before 10 am or after 3 pm
If you have any further questions please ask your veterinarian.
