Sunnies might be a summer staple for us. However, for some dogs (and even cats), glasses aren’t just a fashion statement. Conditions such as conjunctivitis and ‘dry eye’ (or KCS) caused by a lack of tear production in the eyes are the most common medical reasons.

These glasses and goggles might just be the most adorable way for pets to throw some shade this summer...
