Dog Sunscreens

Hey there, dog owners! It's super important to remember that our furry friends need sun protection, too, especially during those bright, sunny days. Here at Pet City, we've got a range of products to keep your dog safe from those harmful UV rays. We're all about ensuring your pooch enjoys the sunshine safely. Keeping your dog's skin protected from the sun is just as important as it is for us humans!


Do dogs need sunscreen?

Yes, dogs do need sunscreen, especially those with short or light-coloured fur, and areas with less hair, like the nose, ears, and belly. Just like humans, dogs can get sunburned, and regular exposure to the sun without protection can lead to skin damage or even skin cancer. It's important to use a sunscreen specifically formulated for dogs, as human sunscreens can be harmful to them.

What is the best dog sunscreen?

Choosing the best dog sunscreen depends on your dog's specific needs and skin type. Look for products that are non-toxic, specifically designed for pets, and offer broad-spectrum protection. Water-resistant options are great for dogs who love swimming. Always avoid products with zinc oxide or para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), as these are harmful to dogs if ingested.
