    Default Sunscreen????

    Do you use sunscreen on your bully, and if you do, what kind do you use? My hubby is wanting to take Dozer fishing with him, which I think Dozer would love as long as it isn't too long out there, but I'm worried about him getting sunburn. I was told once before to put suncreen on him, but just a little leary about that. We live in Florida and it gets HOT!. Thanks for any info you can give.

    Is it cool enough for him to go fishing?

    I don't know how sunscreen would be applied or if it's safe for the ph of their skin, I wonder if they make a doggie sunscreen?

    Yes because they would only be out for a little while. But the vet recommended sunscreen. His face does get red when he is outside too long.

    My bully's dermatologist said it is OK to use sunscreen as many dogs in his California practice ended up with skin cancer. They suggested water-babies for my girl.

    I use sunscreen on Bocephus, I use Epi Pet Sun Protector but have also been told you can use infant/child sunscreen. I would recommend one without zinc

    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.

    Someone on here once said, if its over 79 degrees they should not be outside at all. Adding Florida humidity to that and you're at "Feels like 90". Really dangerous. You might end up with an overheating event on your hands. Be careful.
