Help Your cat Beat The Heat Part 2....


White cats or cats with white ears and faces, are particularly susceptible to sunburn.  Over a period or repeated exposure to the sun can cause squamous cell carcinoma, , a cancer found most often on the tips of the ears and nose.  Early signs area sore that does not heal, or that bleeds.

White cats should be kept out of direct sun as much as possible and  if they must be in the sun, you can help them prevent sunburn by using a sunscreen on their ears and noise.  our veterinarian can recommend one which will not be harmful if ingested.

The sun is a powerful giver of life.
Still worshipped by people  all over the world.
It is not always your cat's best friend.
