Cocker Spaniel Dry Nose? Let’s Get Rid of That FAST!
Cocker Spaniel Dry Nose is seen on a lot of Cockers and NOSE BUTTER can knock it out fast! Handcrafted by ME (yep, I make every item myself) from 100% Organic Shea Butter, organic castor oil, organic olive oil, organic avocado oil, organic almond oil, organic coconut oil, organic beeswax, organic cocoa seed butter, Vitamin E oil, 100 percent Therapeutic Grade Aromatherapy from Young Living Oils, my own The Blissful Dog Vibrational Essences, and a LOT of LOVE.
Just rub a bit of Nose Butter™ across the top of the nose and allow it to melt in. To keep them from licking at their noses, distract them a bit after applying the Nose Butter – play with them, throw a toy, give them a treat, feed them their dinner or even go for a walk (gets your outside also). Nose Butter soaks in really quickly, but if they do lick a bit, no worries, it is all organic good stuff. I told my husband that IF I cooked I could cook in Nose Butter!
Apply 2-3x a day for 1-3 days and then rub the crusties off with a bit of tissue. Apply as needed to maintain a soft smooth Cocker nose. The amount to maintain will vary from dog to dog – experiment a bit. For more info visit FAQs Nose Butter, and FAQs Dry Noses.
Cocker Bit: Vitamin A-responsive dermatosis is a rare disease seen primarily in Cocker Spaniels and reported in Labrador Retrievers, Miniature Schnauzers, and Shar-Pei. It seems to be a vitamin A deficiency caused by problems with the skin and not a nutritional issue at all. Classic Cocker Spaniel dry nose, crusty nose, scaly skin, dry coat, big pustules, hair loss, crusts, and waxy ears are symptoms. Rather than subject your dog to invasive tests, most vets choose to give them Vitamin A and see how they respond. If positive, there is the diagnosis. The vitamin A supplementation (usually in the range of 8,000 to 20,000 IU twice daily), will be lifelong .
Cocker History: Spaniels are one of the ancient classifications of dogs. The modern Cocker’s ancestors are thought to have been brought to England with the Roman invasions (54-55 BC). They were bred to flush birds from dense brush. Chaucer wrote of spaniels (1342-1400), as did Shakespeare (1564-1616), and they were instrumental in England’s separation from the Catholic Church when Lord Wiltshire’s Cocker Spaniel bit Pope Clement VIII on the toe, causing repercussions felt around the world! They were AKC recognized in 1878.
