British Bulldog - prone to skin cancer

Hi,

I have British bulldog who recently has a skin cancer removed. We are in QLD and it's hot summers. Can you recommend a body suit she can wear that isn't incredibly hot

Hi Olivia,

Thank you for your question!

As a fellow Queenslander I completely understand what you mean about the hot summer!

I haven’t had personal experience with doggy body suits but there are a couple of options that are worth exploring.

Bromelli have made to measure sunsuits to help protect short-haired dogs from the strong Australian sun - they are also lightweight and should not make your bulldog overly hot - you can find out more from their website: https://www.bromellidogs.com.au/

Another great company I met at the Dog Lovers Show in Melbourne this year but who are based in Queensland is BeachMutt -The jackets are easy to put on and take off, are lightweight and UPF50 rated their website can be found at: http://www.beachmutt.net/dog-health.html
