I ran across a site with sunglasses for dogs. Is this something that is becoming "recommended" for dogs who are outside a lot? Or is it something that is another way to get your money but isn't needed for most animals? I know what UV rays and lots of light does to my eyes, and have wondered for years if dogs got similar problems. I know they have shorter lifespans, so I wondered if the UV rays were not a problem because they were not exposed to them for 30-80+ years. I'm not trying to be a smartazz or be mean or insensitive. I truly wonder this and have since I was a kid. I know it wouldn't be a high priority for a lot of families, but even as a kid I wondered if the sun hurt our dog's eyes the way it did mine. Back then I got laughed at when I asked. The site I saw is called Doggles (www.doggles.com) and they have a couple of types of eyewear for dogs, along with some other pretty neat dog stuff. They have a basic pair, a pair with interchangeable lenses and even mesh eyewear that isn't hard but can still be seen through and keeps the UV rays out. It seems like the other ones, made of similar stuff to people sunglasses, could become chew toys if the dog was unattended, but the mesh ones wouldn't. Is this something that you would try for your dog if you were going to be outside with him all day? Or is it unneeded for most dogs? I know eye docs are pushing for kids to wear sunglasses when they are outside just like sunscreen to protect their eyes for the long run. I also know dogs get cararacts. Sorry if this is a strange question. Seeing the doggles just made me wonder again.
