As a rule, animals should have a shady place to lie in, especially at midday, when the sun is at its strongest. Particularly sensitive animals require sun protection in the form of a waterproof sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 or a sunblock containing zinc oxide.
For longer walks where the sun’s rays can be particularly aggressive, sensitive animals should wear a T-shirt, coat or hat for protection. If sunburn is visible as reddened, warm or flaking skin, the animal should be moved to the shade as quickly as possible. To relieve the initial symptoms, you can use a soothing ointment however if they continue to worsen you should consult a vet who will be able to give you information and prescribe an antibiotic if needed.
