I've always been a bit nervous about putting sunscreen on my dogs's noses because of the "lick factor".  I'm just not too sure the stuff that is in screen is safe to be eaten.  We had an all-white akita with a pink nose and he would get terribly sunburned so we ended up having his nose tatooed black (that is a WHOLE other story) and trying, as much as possible, to keep in the shade on sunny days.  In Southern Calif. that was a tough prospect!!!

I was wondering the same thing. I found this online. Wonder if it really works. I looked on ebay but did not find anything right now.
