Anthony Hall, DVM, MPH, expert veterinarian at Airvet, shared that cats can, in fact, get a sunburn. “Regardless if your cat spends its time indoors or outdoors, it can indeed get a sunburn the same way people can,” Dr. Hall told POPSUGAR. He said that while all cats can potentially experience adverse effects from the sun, white-haired cats and hairless cats, such as those belonging to the Sphynx breed, tend to have the highest risk.

Because of this, if you have a cat that loves to spend hours soaking up the sun, it is very important that you make sure to stay aware of any signs that could indicate sun damage. Dr. Hall shared that these red flags can include darkening pigment of the skin and burns around the cat’s nose and lips. Just like humans, cats also have the potential to develop skin cancer over time from sun damage.

Hall adds that dogs who suffer from neck pain are also good candidates for bolster beds. It’ll feel good to have their necks stretched out. Hall also says that dogs, who suffer from fear or anxiety issues may feel more secure and comforted by the sides of bolster dog beds.

So, what are the added benefits of using this ingredient? Dr. Peterson Pierre of the Pierre Skin Care Institute in Thousand Oaks, California (www.pierreskincare.com) shares just why probiotics are worth including in your daily skincare regimen. It’s all about restoring and balancing the skin’s natural microbiome. “All of this helps to reduce inflammation,” Dr. Pierre explains.

These properties allow probiotics to be very useful for inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis, and in preventing premature aging.”
