safe and sunny If your canine or feline companion enjoys catching rays as much as you do, you should take care to lather them in sunscreen, too. Not only are pets prone to sunburn, they’re also susceptible to sun-related skin cancer — squamous cell carcinoma is most commonly related to sun exposure. And just because their skin is covered in fur doesn’t mean they’re safe, especially if they’re light skinned.
