Before we lost Petey, I used to use a powdered sunscreen on him. The lotions and sprays were a real pain to get on him and he wouldn't cooperate with me.

I found this powdered mineral sunblock that was the bomb. It's meant for humans to dust on their skin, but it worked great on the dog when I used a huge fluffy brush that I got at Walmart. He'd sit there and let me powder his head and nose.

It's called Natural Reflections, it's made by Everyday Minerals. It gives great protection from the sun with out the hassle. I take a medication that makes me very prone to burning, so this powder has been a real life saver for me.

Natural Reflections Fair is great for light colored dogs.

Oliver sunburns on his nose. I put johnsons baby no tear 50 proof sunblock on his nose before he goes outside.

He hates it and wrinkles his nose up at the injustice of having to wear baby sunblock, but it works wonders.

I ordered the Epi Pet today, thanks to this thread. Looking forward to seeing how my dog reacts to it. She has allergies so hopefully she does well with it on her coat.

No Problem! I came across Epi-Pet when looking for natural dog products to add to my web store and when I food them I was having an issue with my boy Titan. He has seasonal alopicia so I decided to order some before I brought them on as a company I would sell. I must tell you that I am very impressed at the results I am getting.
