Ragdoll Cats and Sun Burns

RagdollCats and Sun Burns

Did you know that it’s possible for cats to get sunburn? Both cats and dogs can be prone to sun burns and other skin sensitivities. Ragdolls are especially prone to sunburn on areas of skin that are not covered by fur. If you suspect your Ragdoll cat has a sunburn or irritated skin, please call your vet for treatment options. Cats with white ears are particularly prone to getting sunburn on the tips or edges of their ears. If approved by your vet, a sunscreen containing titanium dioxide as the active ingredient should be used on areas of your Ragdollcat that are exposed to the sun. Some cats may even need to have their body covered with a t-shirt whether it’s a people t-shirt made to fit or a cat-sized shirt. For more details or suggestions, talk with your vet Rochester, NY.
