Sunburn

Post by Sparky on Sat Jul 20, 2013 3:51 pm

Poor Gizzy seems to have sunburn Crying or Very sad 

He is a blue-eyed bun and the rims of his eyes have always been quite pink, but they now look really pink and sore. The hairs on his 'eyebrows' are really thin and don't seem to offer him any protection. It really does look sore and uncomfortable, even from a distance, and he has been quite grouchy with Cindy lately so Humum thinks he might be a bit uncomfortable.

Hudad has been keeping an eye on him. He has plenty of shade, the sun shines into the top of the hutch but he generally chills out in the lower tier, and he has not been out in the run when it has been really hot (and the run is half covered with a solid panel for shade too).

He seems to be such a pale-pigmented bunny that he'll just burn in no time Crying or Very sad 

They can't think of anything more they can do to prevent it happening, but is there anything they can do to soothe it for him? They're assuming any cream they might put on would just be groomed off by either Giz or Cindy Hmmm

When I had my doggies they did a special animal sunblock. It soaked right into the skin - I'd have no idea if it w,old be safe for buns but might be worth looking into??

How about fixing up some sort of awning for the hutch? Or getting a fly screen for it. The pigs have one of those black fly screens that caom with the scratch and newton insulating covers. It does a really good job of shading them for the short period of the day that the sun gets into their hutch. Greenhouse shade netting might do the job.
