Sprayable sunscreens

I'm going to be clipping my leopard appy this summer,he has always been a bad sweater and I want him to be comfortable. Problem is he has a lot of white. He is turned out at night and when he goes out durning the day he has a sheet to wear. Anyway could I buy that bullfrog hypoallergenic spray and put on him? Are there fly sprays with good sun protection? I used absorbing and rubbed it on his face but he still got burned

I use the absorbine sunscreen bug spray for my boy. For the face I use a fly mask that comes down over his nose.

I use E45 cream and fly cream, but a fly rug works too.

You could use some zinc oxide cream on the face. Might be easier to use a UV protecting blanket for the body.

Sunflower sunscreen is amazing. Works great for my pink skinned leopard. Easy to apply and last a long time
