I have a 9 month old white kitty and about a month ago his ears started getting red and the hair seems to have fallen off the tips. I wondered if it is possible that he is getting a sunburn and what can I do?
I would try putting a little castor oil on the ears topically just to help the healing before anything else, but I would definitely get some sunscreen for your pet's ears because I had a cat, who was white, and he developed these scabs on his ear, and come to find out, he had skin cancer. That is what he died from. Really sad, I had no idea that was even a possibility. A little sun block would have helped had I known, but I'm not sure if you can get something special for animals as they tend to clean their ears and I don't think human sunblock is safe to ingest.
