MIAMI, FL (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
If the notion of dogs wearing sunglasses conjures the image of a pampered, purse-riding Chihuahua wearing a Prada collar, think again. According to the American Veterinary Medical Society, ocular eye injury is a common occurrence in dogs. Canine eye injury can range from minor to severe—and, most importantly, can often be prevented with protective eyewear.
“It never occurred to me to protect my dog’s eyes,” dog-owner Betsy Banks says. “In fact, whenever I saw a dog wearing sunglasses, I just assumed the owner was a little overly-invested in dog fashion. But experience changed my mind. My dog suffered from allergies, the vet prescribed an antihistamine, but I wanted to do what I could to prevent the problem. That’s when I hit the Internet, and discovered Doggles™ Now Truman’s eyes are protected from pollen and other foreign bodies—which helps prevent him from hurting himself by pawing itchy eyes later.” The goggles can be found at its ad here on WholePetDirect.com
Dog eye injury can range from mild to severe. Causes include exploring heavy vegetation, fights with other animals, projectiles such as fireworks and gunshot, and debris flying up from the road to strike the eyes of an enthusiastically sight-seeing dog. Excruciating and with the potential to affect vision, most eye trauma can be prevented.
“I know it’s not safe for Truman to ride in the car unrestrained—even though he adores hanging his head out the window,” Banks says. “ Now we compromise. When fastened in his Mutt Gear Harness, seen here, Truman enjoys the fresh air from an open window—while wearing his Doggles™.”
Doggles™ are contoured goggles designed to comfortably fit the dog’s face to protect the wearer from eye trauma and sun damage. The interchangeable shatterproof and anti-fog lenses make them suitable for day—when the sun protection lenses provide 100 percent UV protection—and night, when the clear lenses protect your dog friend from eye trauma without impacting vision. The deep lens cup and wide nose bridge ensure canine comfort. Available in four sizes, for dogs ranging from one pound to 45+ pounds, Doggles™ feature and adjustable strap to ensure canine comfort. They are available from WholePetDirect.com for $19.49 with flat-rate shipping of $5.75 per order, and FREE shipping for orders over $100.00.
