Sunglasses for pets? When I first saw some of these photos, I thought they were just a Paris Hilton-esque style statement. However, veterinarians actually recommend eye protection for certain dogs: those with eye problems, and those who are in environments that might damage the dog’s eyes.
The most prominent company that makes specialized eye protection for dogs is Doggles, which makes flexible, foam-cushioned frames with shatterproof lenses, and adjustable chin and head straps, so the things actually stay on the dog’s noggin. These are the sunglasses issued to U.S. military working dogs, to help prevent dust and dirt from flying into their eyes during missions.
Doggles are sold online and in stores like Petsmart.
Of course, sometimes the sunglasses look is just for fun!
