HOUSTON - As the temperatures climb and more pet owners spend hours outdoors, pet lovers are working to make sure pets stay safe, too. So, they developed pet sunscreen perfect for pooches.
Dogs are just as likely as people to get skin cancer. One third of all tumors in dogs are sun-related. Sunscreen made for humans is considered toxic, so developers came up with a potion fit for pets.
The sunscreen is made by Petkins, a pet care company. It's one of the first lines made especially for dogs. Depending on the size, the product costs between $4 and $10.
