Eclipse Effect on Your Dog

The “Great American Eclipse” is going to occur today. It is an exciting event for humans to watch but not for your pets. This eclipse is when the moon passes over the sun and causes 2.5 minutes of darkness. The danger lies in the sun’s powerful rays that can burn your retina and the retina of any animal that looks directly at the sun.

Dogs and most animals do not look directly at the sun so “Eclipse Blindness” is not a major concern. However I always like to play it safe
