[quote=“Stray Dog”]From http://www.vetinfo4dogs.com/dhair.html
… it is probably important to use sunblockers if hair coats are shaved very close to the skin, especially when dogs have white or light colored hair coats – or to limit exposure to the sun until there is some hair regrowth. I have really only seen a few dogs with obvious sunburns and none with severe sunburns but it is almost certainly best to error on the side of caution with sun exposure.[/quote]
It seems to be debatable practice:
It says to leave some fur to protect from the sun…and I just shaved her to the skin…darn.
Oh, well…fur might protect from the sun…but while indoors it wouldn’t be benificial in any way (with regards to keeping cool) and she’s indoors more than she’s out.
Plus after shaving off all her fur we found a few trouble areas on her skin that she’ll need to see a vet about…for that alone it’s worth shaving them sometimes…IMHO.
