While Floss and I were stripping the winter coats of the Minions yesterday, I noticed that both Tiddles and Storm had sunburnt noses.
Not a good look and, as someone who also gets burnt just by looking at the sun, I can completely appreciate how utterly miserable it feels too – crunchy, itchy, hot and painful.
So today Floss and I came armed with Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream – my go-to over-the-counter healing unguent (that and Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream).
Floss put a headcollar on Tiddles and I slathered the Sudocrem all over his poor sore nosey.
He took it like a man. Tiddles is always a good boy.s
Then it was Storm’s turn.
His poor little pink nosey had also started to burn in the rare Shetland sunshine.
There were those of course who pointed and laughed!
Poor Storm was not impressed.
There were also the same “those” who insisted on wearing Sudocrem too even though they didn’t need it but wanted to feel involved.
Floss dished out some Carrots of Appeasement.
Carrots are always popular with everyone.
I have now ordered from the vet proper sun-block cream for horses (and cats) as I think we are going to need to use it this summer but, for now, the Sudocrem nosey treatment will have to do.
I don’t think anyone was particularly put out by having a white nose. They went back to their life of eating and enjoying life.
