The Petscreen SPF23 Dog & Cat Sunscreen Spray is a clear, quick-drying liquid sunscreen ideal for lightly pigmented dogs and cats to assist in the prevention of skin cancer and sun-related tumours.
Protect your pet who enjoys soaking up the sun rays. South Africa has a high probability for sunshine and therefore also a high probability for sun-associated tumours of the skin.
PetScreen SPF23 contains four different sunscreen agents to give animals broad-spectrum protection from both UVA (the ultraviolet radiation which damages the skin with more long-term effects) & UVB (the ultraviolet radiation which causes sunburn) components of sunlight.
The product has a Sun Protection Factor of 23, tested on human skin.
Another syndrome of sunlight-associated skin cancer has been recognised in dogs: tumours develop in lightly pigmented glabrous skin of the flank or ventral abdomen after chronic sunlight exposure and long periods of dermatosis .Although any lightly pigmented dog is at risk, tumours have been recognised most often in Beagles, Dalmatians, Whippets, and white Bull terriers.
