According to The Vision Council, National Sunglasses Day is, "a reminder that our shades are a health necessity and it is important to wear sunglasses or other UV-protective eyewear every day to protect long-term eye health." So, while we are keeping our beloved canines safe, healthy, and happy, let's not forget about ourselves! To keep our furry best friends in tip-top shape, we need to be, too!
And what about sunglasses or goggles for dogs? While they may not need sunglasses as we do, there are doggie sunglasses, a/k/a dog goggles, and there are times when it is important for them to wear them, especially when they are in a car, truck, or boat with their faces to the speeding breezes to protect their eyes from the wind, as well as any harmful dust, debris, and UV rays. Just check out our boy Wolf rockin' his doggie goggles (and safety jacket) before a boat ride! Some dogs may also have eye health issues and require wearing them more often. Not sure if your dog should wear dog sunglasses? Check with your vet!
