DogAge Tip of the Week
Bark if You Love the Beach
Do not let too much sun and salt put a damper on your dogs
day at the beach.
Even with all that fur, dogs can still be sun sensitive,
so make sure your dog drinks water and has a shady spot
where she can rest and cool her paws. If your dog is older
or out of shape, take frequent play breaks and if your dog
is fair-skinned, put some sunscreen on her ears and nose.
Plus, always rinse your dog off after she takes a dip, and
keep sea-sipping to a minimum, salt water can irritate both
her skin and her tummy.
