Cats and Sunburns

Did you know that it’s possible for cats to get a sunburn? Cats of all breeds and ages should not be in the sun for long periods of time as it can cause sunburn to their skin and even heatstroke if they overheat. Cats that have little to no fur are especially at risk for sunburn because their skin is directly exposed to the sun’s rays. Light colored cats tend to have especially pink or sensitive skin, which can also be prone to sunburn. You can help your cat avoid sunburn by making sure he stays inside during the hottest part of the day when the sun’s rays are at its strongest. Keep the blinds closed in the house so your cat doesn’t sunbathe for too long and get overheated or sunburn. If your cat has a sunburn contact your Fort Collins, CO veterinary clinic to learn how to treat it.
