Heatwave Alert: Did You Know The Sun Can Give Your Dog Solar Dermatitis

With the UK in the middle of a heatwave and warnings about too much sun exposure and high temperatures, leading veterinary charity PDSA is urging people to take care of their pets too.

Summer can be a wonderful for the nation’s pets to enjoy long walks, playtime in the park and lazing in the garden but many owners are not aware of the hazards to animals, particularly in very hot weather. If pets are exposed to too much sun, it can cause heatstroke and can cause a pet’s skin, particularly delicate areas such as the nose or ears, to become sunburnt. Long-term sun exposure can prove fatal, as like people, pets can also develop malignant skin cancer.
