Summer is here and we are all spending more time outdoors with our four-legged friends. This means that we must make sure they do not get too much sun and run the risk of sunburn or, worse, skin cancer.
Your dog’s skin is a tell-tale – or tell-tail – sign that he has had too much sun exposure. If your dog is sunburned, his skin will look pinker than normal. It might be more sensitive to the touch too. Your dog’s sunburn is more than unsightly and uncomfortable; it’s harmful. Like people, dogs exposed to too much sun can develop skin cancers, including squamous cell carcinoma. In fact, skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in dogs.
