Shaded Nation – Shade Sails

Keeping pets sun safe

Here at Shaded Nation we know that pets are a genuine part of the family. You only have to take a look at our much-loved office hound Gus for proof of that.

As people love their pets so much, they will do whatever it takes to keep them fit, healthy and out of trouble. However, there is one problem that even well-meaning owners can overlook and that is sunburn.

It may surprise you to learn that dogs, cats and other animals can all get burnt in the sun and this can lead to serious health issues in much the same way it does for humans.

But what can be done to ensure your four-legged friend avoids the dangers of the sun? Firstly, the most important thing is to control the amount of time they spend exposed to direct sunlight.

One option is to simply keep your dog or cat inside. However, being cooped up for long periods is not good for an animal’s wellbeing and can lead to health and mental problems of its own.

The ideal solution is to allow your pet to spend time outside, but to have access to shade should they need it. A sail shade structure is the perfect way to provide this.

Manufactured to block up to 98.8 per cent of harmful UV rays, our shades can create a cool spot in which your pooch or moggy can relax while the sun is beating down. They also provide shelter from wind and rain and can, of course, be used by the human members of the family as well.

If you want to make sure you pet stays protected during sunny weather, specialised sun lotion for cats and dogs can be purchased and applied to areas most at risk of burn such as the ears and nose.

Providing your four-legged friend with access to shade is an ideal way to keep them happy and healthy just like Gus!
