    Milly has quite a pale nose (springer spaniel) and i noticed it looked darker round the outside, is this sunburn? Is there anything we can do to prevent burning?

    Novak is white so I put sun cream on his nose, ears and tummy before taking him out in this weather.

    The vet told me to do this when I took him for his first injection, before that it hadn't even occured to me that dogs could get sun burnt.

    I use factor 50, Nivea for kids on my mainly white SBT.

    If he does catch the sun, then i use aloe vera to soothe it.

    The best thing to do is keep your dog out of the sun as much as possible to prevent burning.

    Sudocreme is a total sunblock and waterproof too :thumbup:

    My horse had a v pink nose and got badly burnt. Even the highest factor human cream had to be applied 3 times a day. Sudocreme only once and he had a nose like a baby's bottom :lol:
