Your pet can get sun burnt too!

Dec 17, 2017 | Cats, Dogs, Pet Health

The sun in New Zealand is particularly harsh, which can be problematic for lighter coloured animals. Over summer ensure your pet has access to a cool, shady area, out of direct sunlight. If your pet has a thin coat and is affected by the sun or has pink/white areas on their body, you may like to consider using a pet sunblock powder. Areas on your pet that may be prone to sun burn are the muzzle/nose, ears, and abdomen.

Why a powder?

  • A powder is much easier to use on your pet compared to a cream. The powder is dabbed on using the applicator (similar to powder foundation)
  • Powder formation means less irritating to pets, reducing chance of pet rubbing or licking off
  • Light, dry powder vs. wet, thick cream. Pets often barely notice it’s on them.
  • Stays on for at least 24 hours or longer if your pet doesn’t go swimming
  • Blocks all UVA and UVB rays
  • Creates a smooth, film like coating when applied
  • Does not have a sticky finish, so does not attract dust and dirt
  • Very economic – a small amount of powder goes a long way
  • An all-natural, non irritant formula
