National Safe Sun Week – May 24-30, 2021
We all know of the dangers of the sun and the risk of skin cancer. But did you know cats and kittens are also at risk?
While fur helps protect our pets against the damaging effects of the sun, it’s still possible for them to contract skin cancer. The good news is, if it’s caught quickly, it can often be treated.
What is feline skin cancer?
Squamous cell carcinoma – is caused by exposure to the sun. Outdoor cats are at greater risk of developing this type of skin cancer than dogs, due to their love of sunbathing, and basking in the warm sun on hot days is something most cats enjoy.
