Allow your furry friend to safely enjoy time in the sun with the My Dog Nose It! Sun Protection Balm. Specially created with ingredients suited just for dogs, this sun protector is totally safe for your pet—unlike human sunscreen. And besides reducing the risk of sunburn and skin irritation, this paraben-free balm comes with a host of other great benefits. It actually soothes and heals by adding moisture to any unprotected areas, and prevents the nose color from fading. Remember, humans aren’t the only ones who need to seek protection from harmful UV rays, but dogs need their own special formula!

Key Benefits
  • A clear and velvety smooth balm that dries quickly and is never greasy or oily.
  • Made in the USA, this pH balanced formula is made with natural ingredients such as Carnauba Wax and Ethylhexyl Stearate from coconut oil.
  • Water resistant and free of parabens, Zinc Oxide and Titanium Oxide which can be harmful to dogs.
  • Use on your pup's nose, ears and other unprotected areas to help eliminate sunburn and other skin irritations.
  • Easy to use, just apply every two hours when playing outdoors or in the water.

Why does my dog need this?

Because pets can get skin cancer too!Just like how we humans use SPF to stay away from skin cancer, our pets can also get the same cancers like basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and even melanoma.While basal cell carcinoma is the most common for humans it is the least common for dogs. Theirs is the more invasive; the squamous and melanoma.And yes, our furry friends are often covered in, well, fur! This does act as natural sun protection for most breeds and most of a dogs body. But what about the tummy, ears, and especially the nose? That’s where taking the proactive action of limiting your dogs exposure to the sun and protecting them with a sunscreen come in.But that doesn’t mean human sunscreen either! Human sunscreen blocks UVA and UVB rays using chemicals, like Zinc Oxide and Titanium Oxide. These are safe for humans but not on pets! The chemicals are toxic and can even be fatal if ingested! Even baby sunscreens can contain chemicals that are harmful to your pets. So please only use products that are meant for your pet, like My Dog Nose It!

How Many Dogs Really Get Skin Cancer?

This is uncharted territory folks. We’ve contacted the American Cancer Society and statistics on pets are, by their knowledge, not yet tracked. What we do know? That it’s on the rise. For humans, current statistics indicate that 1 in 5 people will have some form of skin cancer in their lifetime. Perhaps statistics for animals will be available in the near future.

Why is human sunscreen bad for my pet?

PLEASE do not apply human sunscreen to your pet. Most ingredients, while safe for humans, are very poisonous for our beloved family members. DON’T USE SUNSCREEN ON YOUR PETS!

Is this product safe for my pet?

Yes! My Dog Nose It is completely safe for your beloved family member! You can even take a look at our full ingredient list under our shop and order now section of this website. It not only shows each active and inactive ingredient but also details where it is derived from and what it is used for. My Dog Nose It is proud to be all natural, vegan, cruelty and paraben free.

How often does My Dog Nose It need to be applied?

When playing outdoors or in the water we recommend applying a thin layer every two hours.

What’s the texture like?

My Dog Nose It is a clear, velvety smooth balm that dries quickly and is water resistant.

Can I use the product on myself?

Out and about with your buddy and forgot your lip balm or lotion? Yes, go ahead and protect yourself too.

What is the SPF?

We did not use an SPF number as we do not want to associate with human sunscreen. Our product is designed to protect from the harmful rays of the sun and environment, as well as heal and add moisture.

  • Works Great

    By on

    I have found that this works really great for my dog as her nose and around her eye burns very easily. Sprays seem to scare her and think she is doing something bad as this is a nice pet. Yes, she likes to try and lick it but we try and distract her with treats and we have found using the palm of our hand works wonderfully.

  • doggie sunblock

    works well on my furbaby pink nose. Pittie with very short hair on face and tip of nose is pink. This kept the sunburn away during a stretch of very hot weather. I was disappointed in the small size of the product though - for $13 it was like buying a tiny tin of lip balm. Will probably search for a more economical product when this is gone.

  • Good product

    By on

    This is probably a very good product, if I could just get close enough to my dogs nose to put it on!! He's a white dog with pink skin and I need to protect his nose, ears, etc. but he flees when I put it on MY fingers to rub on his nose. What to do.

  • a little expensive for how much you get

    By on Top 10 Contributor

    The container is very small and doesn't not hold much product, but this does work very well as far as I can tell. My dog has a white nose with very little fur on it. I noticed it gets very red when we are walking outside in the sun. This has helped.

    My bully has a pink nose and very short fur. Application is easy and light, not greasy or slimy; rubs in easily. Doesn’t smell.

  • Pet friendly sunscreen

    By on

    I was surprised to learn that sunscreens for humans are toxic to dogs. My Dog Nose It is the perfect product to protect my fur baby's nose from harmful sun exposure. Love the packaging and cute instructions.

  • The Nose Doesn't Know

    By on

    Jury's out. Can't tell if this really work or not. It goes on nearly invisible so hard to tell if it is still there like the child's zinc oxide goop we normally use.

  • Love It! Can Do without It!

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    My albino looking, pink nosed pup is always trying to sunbathe. I picked this up as soon as I knew the adoption was final. Works so well. Worth every penny.
