People who have never had a dog, don’t know what they’re missing in terms of a true and devoted friend. Dogs need love and attention, just like any other member of your family. Your dog’s skin needs care too, particularly because skin problems can be uncomfortable for your dog and cause a lot of misery. Lots of these skin problems though are preventable with the right knowledge and care.
Just like with ourselves, overexposure to the sun, especially with white haired dogs can be seriously dangerous. If you’re going to be on the beach, put a pet-safe sunblock on. For overheating, a reflective jacket can also help to keep your dog cool. Remember that if your dog has been cavorting in the waves or in the field, grooming will help keep your best friend’s skin healthy. Matted and tangled hair can cause hot spots and skin irritations, so always brush your dog, even if it has short hair.
This kind of contact with your pet keeps the skin healthy but strengthens the bond between you as well. Don’t bath your pet too often as it destroys the dog’s natural oils and can irritate sensitive skin as well. Dogs make such absolutely awesome pets, its worthwhile taking special care of such a loyal and devoted friend.
