There is an increasing concern over ozone depletion and its effects on the environment and human health. However, the increase in ultraviolet-B radiation (UV-B) that would result from significant losses of ozone is also potentially harmful to animals. Any increase in disease in domestic species would not only have serious animal welfare implications but may also be economically important. The diseases which are likely to increase if ozone depletion continues include the squamous cell carcinomas… 
The interactive toxicity of benzo(a)pyrene and ultraviolet radiation : an in vitro investigation
TLDR
It was shown that mammalian (CHO-Kl) and fish cells (EPCAl and RTG-2) exhibited similar sensitivities to chemicals with different modes of action i.e. clastogenic ethyl methansulphonate (EMS) and aneugenic colchicine (COL) and that mammalian cells irradiated with UVB displayed a significant increase in cytotoxicity (NRR) and DNA damage (comet assay).
Potential effects of ultraviolet-C radiation on the mole rats (Spalax leucodon) hematological values
TLDR
The results showed that the UVC radiation has significant effects on some hematological parameters of mole rats according to the radiation exposure time and a dose.
Effects of Ultraviolet Radiation on Some Immunological Parameters in Rats
TLDR
The results showed that both UVA and UVB radiation have suppressive effects on some humoral and cellular immune parameters in rats.

Photodamage in Feline Skin: Clinical and Histomorphometric Analysis
TLDR
A positive correlation was obtained between age, degree of edema and sclerosis in the upper dermis, telangiectases, squamatization of basal keratinocytes, and epidermis thickness and the degree of PD.
