Preventing Sun Burn??

My wife and I have a white Arab Appy mix with fair pink skin.. we are currently keeping her under a fly mask and a sheet.. Any other recommendations??
Luckily we live in Oregon so its only about a 3 month a year problem..
Thanks Greg

The fly mask is a good call. Appies with pink skin around the eyes are prone to vision problems.

If you're looking for a cream product, baby sunscreen, horse -formulated sunscreen, and plain old zinc oxide are good options.

I use diaper rash ointment . The walgreens Brand works well. It has Zink oxide in it and works great

If you want something that will last all day, you can't beat zinc oxide cream.

Do be sure to use the above recommended sunscreens on her nose---that always seems to be the first place to get burned!
