Doggy Sunstick – Sunscreen for Dogs
Just like people, dogs need protection from the sun. Doggy Sunstick provides the fastest, most convenient way to protect your dog from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays whenever they’re outdoors.
The gentle, non-greasy formula was developed especially for dogs and compares to SPF 15 rated sunscreens for people.
Great to use for cats as well, the non-greasy formula has a pleasant coconut and vanilla scent.
Simply rub on anytime your dog is out in the sun, especially on ears, nose, muzzle, pink skin areas and any other spots where skin is exposed to the sun.
Petkin Suncare Range
Keep your pet’s skin in tip top shape for a long, happy and healthy life…
Humans are well aware of the problems caused by excessive exposure to the sun, without the correct precautions and protection. However, pets are all too often neglected and exposed to these harmful effects. Skin cancers are the most common tumour in dogs, accounting for approximately 33% of all tumours…
In response to this, Petkin have developed a range of products designed to give pets maximum protection from the sun. Petkin Suncreen is developed for pets specifically so you know it is 100% safe. It can be dangerous to put human suncreen on your pet as human suncare products can aggravate your pet’s skin, as some contain PABA and zinc oxide, to name but two ingredients.
The danger is when dogs lick human suncreen from their body, the PABA can cause vomiting, diarrhoea and even bone marrow changes and liver damage. Zinc toxicity can also cause vomiting, diarrhoea, lack of appetite, lethargy and weakness and in more extreme cases, even liver and kidney failure and jaundice. Petkin’s care range makes sure that there are no adverse reactions to any ingredients. Harmful contents from human sunscreens, such as PABA and zinc oxide are NOT contained in these sunscreens.
Using 100% SPF ingredients, at a factor of SPF 15, Petkin have given pets 15 times more protection in the sun, compared to no protection.
This hits the correct balance of protection levels, without aggravating the pets skin which higher protection factors can do.
