Can you believe it is almost summer ALREADY??
It seems like only yesterday bunches of our friends were snowed in
and it was freezy cold outside!!
Are you all ready for the sunshine???
Jakey likes to sunbathe A LOT!!!
The V-E-T says Sunblock sprayed on Jakey, especially his tummy area, would help lots. The best thing to do would be to keep him inside as much as possible when the sun is the strongest. Here in Northern California the sun is way strong between the hours of 10 and 3.
Not only does Mama spray Arty and Jakey's tummies (and sometimes mine too), but she makes sure our noses are protected from the sun too. She uses sunblock lotion for this.
DO NOT USE ANY PRODUCT WITH ZINC OXIDE
it is NOT good for doggies.
(Mama uses human baby suncreen).
Efurrybody knows the number one thing to do to protect against the heat right??
DRINK LOTS OF WATER!!!
I don't lay in the sun very often, but when I do I am usually wearing protective dresses. We are lucky up here on the Northwest Coast, the hottest it usually gets is 75 degrees or so.
How do you protect yourself from the sun??
