Yes they can get sunburns just like we do. Lighter the pigment the faster the burn.

Go get any of the sun protector lotions and put on nose and anywhere else the dog is getting RED.

Get one that is 30 + anything less then that will still allow the dog to burn.

Make sure to run in. Will not make dog sick,

Black or dark fur will soak up the heat and if the skin underneathe is not dark with pigment they also can get a sunburn.

be careful

his skin is very light underneath. i dont leave him out if the temp is higher then 80 5 mins out in that weather and it looks like his tongue is going to fall outa his mouth!!

yes you can put aloe on the dogs ears and nose. it will not hurt the dog at all.

sunburn maybe

it could of been several things, she might have gotten sunburned but she also might have an allergy and had an allergic reaction to whatever it is she might be allergic too, or she might of gotten overheated. p.s. next time remember to grab a bottled water to take with you, cause this summer is gonna be whooo hot espically if your in the south like we are.
