My little American Eskimo's black nose started turning pink when we moved to SC and it took me months to realize that it was because of sun exposure! We limit her exposure but I'll look for sunblock now.

I had no idea! My poor little one, I bet thats why she hates to be outside with us is because of sun burn. I will have to check around at the local pet stores to try and find her some sun screen!

THat is very scary i never knew that. It would be kind of hard to put sunscreen on your pets though. it would make their hair really oily and greasy

i'm not sure animal sunscreen would be as thick as one made for humans. i mean, dogs and cats lick pretty much everything off so they'd probably need something thinner and lighter.

This again it's like I'm back in high school and they keep on shoving the same crap down my throat over and over again even after I have memorized it. But this is good advice to always know. This makes me wonder why at go 4th at the lake that they allow people to bring their dogs to it and they have a petting zoo they should not be aloud this could be dangerous if a big dog where there that heard the fire works and the niose and got scarred then they could run off and hurt some one not on purpose but by accident.
