Anyone else have a pink dog?
|Is it heat that's causing the pinkness? When I shaved my two, they were pretty white and grey. Maybe talk to the groomer about leaving him a bit more hair, probably an inch or so to provide more coverage.|
|No he's always been pink. He has a lot of white on him and the skin under there seems to be much more sensitive. I never worried with Walter or Marley because they have darker skin too. I'm not sure an inch is enough though, his hair is really thick and coarse so it separates in some areas and the skin is exposed. I suppose I'll just have to find a happy medium.|
|My maltese was pink, and this was a common topic on the board. They generally didn't leave them out for a long time because of their sensitive skin and kept a little hair on top when shaving them. My dog was always an inside dog so I never thought anything of it. We took her outside for long periods but never long enough to test how long she can bare before getting burnt. i remember sunblock lotion being recommended before too.|
|Abby has a very pink muzzle when shaved, so I just use baby sunscreen (it comes in a spray, for infant's heads) and that has worked fine!|
|try ice on ice it has a sunscreen in it! its a grooming spray for helping the matting and a leave in conditioner|
i had a puppy bichon in the other day it came with a sunburnt nose due to minamal sun we have and got sunburnt. its only june and just getting warm inbetween the rain here. ice on ice will help the coat too but if you are unsure put some baby sunlotion on.
the difference most groomers will find, is that if your dog is matt free their clippers/comb attachments will go to an inch other than that its hand scissored, and there is a difference in price.
but whatever the cut if you have pink sensative skin use sunblock or lotion to be on the safe side.
billy has a large scar on his back from before we got him, i have to put sunblock on it whatever length his coat is
|ohh cool, I will definitely try ice on ice and a little sunblock for his cute little nose|
|Zeke is pretty pink.|
If he stays out in the sun too long, he gets a little redder.
We never let him stay in the direct sun for too long.
|When the hair's really short, limit the time outside. When it's longer you can bump it up. We always used sunscreen on their noses. My husband did neon purple zinc oxide on one once. It looked hilarious. Caused traffic jams when we walked him.|
|My vet told me to be careful about sunburn w/the skin around Lilly's left eye. She looks like she has eyeliner around her right eye, but she has very pink skin around her left eye. I'm not sure how I could put sunscreen on so close to her eye. I just do not let her be out in the strong sun for very long.|
|Oscar is so pink, he's practically an albino! And when he gets too hot, or is fighting some sort of inflammation, he turns fuchsia. |
Like many on the forum, I limit his exposure to direct sunlight. We take our long walk early in the morning, and he only goes out for short walks after that. I do not use sunscreen on him, as he's sensitive to something in it. More skin trouble, we don't need!!!
I'm sure Rudie looks really cute with his new "do".
Laurie and Oscar
|I have baby pink and powder blue sunblock.... Both look very cute!!!!!|
