Thanks Debra for all the information I had researched Sunscreen a few years back because we spend a lot of time on our boat and it was so confusing. I would decide I would just order the doggie sunscreen and read the ingredients and they had a bad one listed. So I just started putting rash guards on Kaiah and tried to keep her in the shade when possible (lol). She had a red bump come up on her nose a while back and we thought she had maybe gotten bit by bee so we gave her some benedryl and no problems. The redness is gone but now months later a small bump is still there and it looks a little weird. I am taking her in next week for our vet to look at it . Hence the quest for a good sunscreen. I read in an article that Benzophenone-3, Triethanolamine, Methyl Parabene, Zinc Oxide, DMDM Hydantoin, Imidurea, and PABA Should not be used on dogs. My vet suggested a baby sunscreen and I have found a couple that do not have these ingredients but wanted to see if anyone with a basenji has used them first. Thanks for all the information.
Thanks I appreciate the recommendation. I have always been concerned about the sun with my basenji because she is mostly black. She really does get extremely hot. But I was hesitant to put sunscreen on her because of the ingredients so I just put a rashguard on her. I will give it a try.
I have a 5 year Basenji and a recent rescue 10 month old Vizsla, hound mix and I needing some advice. My basenji had been on triflexis for a couple of months and had a bad reaction (she was lethrgic) then we were using a topical medication that was not working , My vet gave me a new medicine, nexgard and I came home and researched it and i did not see any bad reviews. They have been on it for maybe 6 months or so . Well I looked it up again and saw some horrible reviews on the product. I discontinued my use. I live on an island in florida with alot of wildlife etc.. Any advice?
