Yes, your pet will turn heads while wearing these sunglasses but there is a practical reason why you need a pair for your dog. Pets have sensitive eyes too. Pet eyewear reduces glare and protects eyes from UV rays. Built in foam padding prevents irritation. Everyone knows dogs love to hang their heads out car windows. That wind rushing through their fur can also blow dust or debris into their eyes.
Hiking, running in and out of bushes, catching balls or flying discs, running on the beach, rough play with other pets, or a new puppy or kitten in the home all offer opportunities for dogs to injure their eyes. A particular condition called Pannus results in redness around the sclera (whites of the dogs eyes), excessive tearing and mucus and should be treated by a veterinarian immediately.
