Did you know animals can get sunburnt too?

Introducing Be:Sunsafe natural SPF 15 protection for your four-legged friends.


We all know human skin needs UV protection, but can animals get burnt too? The answer is YES. A fur coat does not automatically offer sun protection.


Too much fun in the sun can damage your pet’s skin and increase the risk of your four-legged friend developing skin cancer - just as it does for us. For example, dogs with white fur or thinner coats may be more at risk for sunburn than others, and those who have light-pigmented noses are extra susceptible to sun damage.


Some of the more common dog breeds that may be particularly at risk include Collies, Australian Sheepdogs, Dalmatians, Bulldogs and Whippets.


Sunburn can also exacerbate any existing skin condition your animal might have, such as dermatitis. So, if your pet is a sensitive type, some skin soothing Be:Sunsafe SPF 15 could be one of your most valuable pieces of pet care kit this summer season.


Protect your pets on sunny days with Be:Sunsafe SPF15

Prevention is better than cure, so try and keep your animal out of the midday sun. And if you are going to be out and about, make sure they always have access to shade.


Apply Be:Sunsafe SPF15 balm to exposed areas of skin. Noses and ear tips are particularly at risk, as are pink tummies (should you have a dog who likes to lounge around upside down, for example!) Make sure you reapply regularly too, particularly if you have a pet who is a keen swimmer.

Because human sunscreens may contain ingredients that are toxic to pets - Zinc Oxide is one - Be:Sunsafe has been lovingly formulated with natural ingredients that are 100% safe for animals and humans. These include Vitamin A, E & F, Beeswax, Grapeseed Oil, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Citronella, Chamomile, Lavender, Carrot Seed and Raspberry Seed Oil.

Be: Sunsafe £9.99/60g. Available here or ask in store at your local pet supply retailer.
