Don't forget your pets when you're out in the sun this summer. 
Whether you're at the beach, the park, going for a walk or just lazing in the back yard, keep your dog safe from the sun.
Doggy Sunstick provides a fast, convenient way to protect your dog from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays whenever they’re outdoors. 
The gentle, non-greasy formula was developed especially for dogs and compares to SPF 15 rated sunscreens for people. 
Simply apply to the sensitive areas of your dog any time it is out in the sun, especially on ears, nose, muzzle, pink skin areas and entire coat of light colored or short haired dogs. 
Just roll on for instant sun protection.

Any dog can get sunburn,” says Dr Jade Norris, RSPCA Australia Scientific Officer. “But hairless dogs, white- and-pink skinned pets, white and light-haired pets and short and thin-haired pets are particularly susceptible. Outside living pets and shaved pets are also more susceptible.”

Just like humans, sunburn on dogs can have nasty consequences. UV radiation is a factor in some dog cancers such as squamous cell carcinoma, a malignant cancer which can spread to other parts of the body. Another cancer thought to be UV-induced is dermal haemangiosarcoma.
