Just like humans, many dogs enjoy laying on the deck and feeling the warmth of the sun! However, some breeds may need a bit of protection if they are outside for long periods of time because yes, dogs can get sunburn!
For example, dogs with dogs with light-pigmented noses and eyelids can be at risk for getting sunburn. Some veterinarians even suggest that you pay close attention to dogs that have light or white pigment on their ears. If the skin on your pup becomes reddened, warm, or begins to flake, consider taking your dog indoors, or at least into a shaded area.
Furthermore, if your “best friend” happens to be an unusual breed such as the American Hairless Terrier, ask your vet for advice on how to best protect him from harmful UV rays.
