Hello - sunscreen help

    Hello. I am new here.
    I wanted to say hello and thanks for this great resource first off all. I have been reading some of the threads and this group seems great.
    I have a question because the dog I recently adopted is going to need sunscreen. My very specific question is if anyone knows of a dog sunscreen that is fragrance free. I have a severe allergy to something in a lot of fragrances. I have spent hours searching online and a lot of these products don’t post ingredients. I thought I had finally found a product (it was advertised as fragrance free) but then I read that it contained essential oils (which are not fragrance free).
    All the sunscreens I can use contain things that my dog shouldn’t ingest.
    All the dog products I can find contain things that I can’t be around.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks from Jenna and Hiro!

    Hello! Welcome-
    I've had to use some on my girl when she lost her fur and had bad back to back staph infections. This one is okay, it's made for dogs and is a single ingredient product. We did not use it for an extended period of time though just for a short duration of time while she needed extra protection. It is only 15SPF but we stayed out of the sun during high peak hours. She suffers from bad allergies and she did okay with it. We did rinse it off with water though and only used it on targeted areas that needed it. I think there is a spray version as well but the stick worked out better for her for target areas.
