Thread: Dog licked sunscreen off floor, is that bad?

    Default Dog licked sunscreen off floor, is that bad?

    I'm back again lol....... our dog has thrown up twice today (second time appeared to just be a large watery pool) & apparently she may have licked some sunscreen off the floor last night I'm told; so not sure if it is because of that or not!?

    The sunscreen is the "Cancer Council - Ultra Sunscreen 30+".

    The ingredients are:

    Preservatives: Phenoxyethanol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol

    Active Ingredients: Octyl Methoxycinnamate 75mg/g, Zinc Oxide 60mg/g, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane 17.5mg/g, 4 Methylbenzylidene Camphor 10mg/g.

    She's a Shitzu x Maltese x Bishon, almost 5 years old & around 6kg or so..

    Thanks!

    My dogs like the taste of sunscreen and have licked off quite a bit in the past although not in huge quantities. Didnt seem to affect them. Hard to say if that is the cause.

    Yeah, I'm thinking if they licked it off somebodies leg it shouldn't be a problem as it's been rubbed in, but if she licked it off the floor she may have ingested a bit more....... but I wasn't there so unsure how much she actually licked.

    I hate it when my dog 'throws up'. I find myself mentally running a list of possible causes ...
    Hope your dog is OK now cyphix

    Mine have licked up spills, but they are 3 times the weight of your little one. Hopefully she is good now.

    Mine sometimes throw up for no apparent reason. Mind you they are not adverse to sampling the odd unidentifiable object. Not very often but they seem to get over it quickly.
