Hello

Unfortunately, sun burn in dogs has the same possible side effect as in people, as in it predisposes the dog to developing skin cancer at a later stage.

For the moment, you are going to have to keep her out of the sun while the sunburn heals. If you are using a cream, make sure it doesn't contain any ingredients that can be harmful to your dog. A cream from the vet may be a safer option. When she starts going out again, apply sunscreen every morning to her belly and the areas on her face that tend to get burned. You can buy special doggy sunscreen or use children's SPF 15 sunscreen. Please make sure that the product you use does not contain PABA, as this can be toxic to dogs.

I hope this has been of some assistance to you.

Every thing you have told me here has been tried with her. In the summer i use childrens spf 50 sunscreen still no joy with that.Plus daisy is controlled while she is out i never let her stay out any longer than 10 min.This is why im online now cause i really dont know what to do any more.
I'm afraid I don't have any other ideas, as usually the daily application of the sunscreen is sufficient. I am going to unlock this question to see if anyone else has any other ideas.
