Sunburn should be avoided by keeping cats confined during the warmer part of the day. Anybody who has experienced sunburn knows how painful it is, and just like humans, cats can develop cancer from exposure to the sun (see below).
Squamous cell carcinoma
This is due to a malignant tumour of the skin and is most commonly caused by excess sun exposure. Any part of the cat’s body can be affected, but areas with little or no skin are most at risk, that includes the ear tips and the nose. As with sunburn, cats with light coats are at greater risk due to the lack of melanin in the skin.
Symptoms of squamous cell carcinoma include red and crusted sores, bleeding ulcers which won’t heal and hair loss. Treatment includes surgery to remove the affected area and chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Pemphigus complex A group of rare auto immune skin disorders affecting the skin. There are three types of pemphigus in cats depending on the layer of skin involved.
