NOSE BUTTER® FRENCH BULLDOG DRY NOSE TREATMENT 

french bulldog groomingWHAT IS THAT DRY, CRUSTY STUFF ON MY FRENCH BULLDOG’S NOSE?

Frustrating, isn’t it? You’re a great Frenchie lover – feed them top of the line food, make sure they get exercise and regular check-ups and all the sofa time they could ask for. But there is that crust on your Frenchie’s nose and it won’t go away!

Rest assured, it’s almost certainly nothing you have done wrong or didn’t do. It’s  probably not food, dirt (even for the most relentless digger) or bad genetics. If your Frenchie’s nose is dry overall or has a small line of crust at the top, it may just be a general dry nose that NOSE BUTTER® will hydrate and moisturize in just a few applications (then regular usage keep that Frenchie nose looking good.

If the crust covers the entire nose, has a layered look to it (like oyster shells or barnacles) or a like a porous rock of meteorite chunk then your Frenchie may have Nasal Hyperkeratosis aka crusty French Bulldog dry nose crud. Ugly name for an ugly condition.

BEFORE-AFTER-NOSE-BUTTERScience Lesson Time: Nasal Hyperkeratosis is known as an idiopathic condition ¯\(°_o)/¯ (medical double talk for they don’t have a clue where it comes from) that causes a protein or keratin overgrowth (keratin-more jargon). There is the nasal type you are seeing on your dog’s nose and also a paw pad variety that shows up as tufts or layers of extra tissue on their paws.

Flat-faced breeds, the entire Bulldog family, toy breeds, the mastiff crew and anything with a chunky body type seem to have a genetic predisposition toward this condition. Some medications will worsen it, as will some unrelated conditions and dry climates will aggravate it.

I use the term condition, which means this is a chronic issue that can be HEALED but not CURED. The symptoms (the crust) can be gotten under control, and kept under control, but regular maintenance is required. Yeah, like cutting their toenails…you cut them and they grow back! Personally, I feel it is caused by a slightly depressed or compromised immune system. Frenchies are a dwarfed, brachycephalic breed and it stands to reason that to get such an extreme body type and “look” something is compromised. Class Dismissed!

french bulldog puppiesNow you know what it IS, let’s discuss what will get rid of this issue and keep it under control…NOSE BUTTER®!

NOSE BUTTER® for your French Bulldog is individually handcrafted (by my team and me – Kathy) here in far northern Minnesota using all organic good stuff – organic shea butter, organic olive oil, organic castor oil, organic castor oil, organic avocado oil, organic almond oil, organic coconut oil, organic beeswax, organic cocoa seed butter, just a dash of essential oils and a LOT of LOVE. Every item is tucked into a fabric gift bag with complete directions included.

SCENTED OR UNSCENTED?

LIGHTLY SCENTED: Our classic NOSE BUTTER® has a dash of essential oils (Cedarwood for grounding and stress reduction, Cypress for balance and clarity and Ylang Ylang for uplifting energy and light), but unless you have a very sensitive nose, you will probably not notice it at all.

UNSCENTED VERSION: While we totally believe in the energetic healing properties of the dash of essential oils we use, we honor that some of you may prefer a completely unscented version. Select your choice in the dropdown menu.

Frenchie book by Kathy Dannel Vitcakfirst french bulldog romJACKPOT! FRENCH BULLDOGS

For decades I bred and showed French Bulldogs under the JACKPOT! kennel name, as I felt I had Hit the Jackpot! when I got my first French Bulldog, CH. Tea-D’s Joker’s Wild Jackpot! Yes, I was the crazy woman shaking the toy shrieking about something that was incredibly at that moment at the dog show aka Parker Posey in BEST IN SHOW. I laugh and cringe both at some of those memories!

So many wonderful things have happened in my life as a result of my love affair with Frenchies, for which I am always grateful. There were many Number One, Top Ranked Frenchies that came from my breeding program and some Best in Specialty and Best in Show ones. But I am still the proudest of the fact that my beloved and still missed CH. Jackpot! Money Money Money was awarded the very FIRST ROM (Registry of Merit) from the French Bulldog Club of America.

Money was also the sire and I was the breeder of the very first French Bulldog, CH. Jackpot! For the Love of Money to receive an OFA Hip Certification of EXCELLENT. Thank you for allowing me to reminisce, ok and brag a little bit. Money is the brindle boy to the left and his son Lover Boy is with him.

In 2001, I was honored to be asked to write a book for Howell Books (now Wiley) on French Bulldogs. It is still available in Kindle format and in hardback every now and then. Here is a link to AMAZON if you wish to check it out.

FRENCH BULLDOG INFO & HISTORY

French Bulldog HistoryFrench Bulldog GaminFrench Bulldogs were bred to be a woman’s companion and they live up to that heritage. In the late 1800s, English Bulldogs were often bred in a Toy variety, many were not much over ten pounds! They had a variety of ear-sets – rose, bat and prick.

With the Industrial Revolution, many lace workers immigrated to France, taking the little bulldogs with them. There they crossed the dogs with Pugs, terriers and other small breeds, creating the early French Bulldog. Frenchies became the darling of society and were often seen on the arms of prostitutes as they walked the boulevards of France. As is often the case, fashion traveled upwards and the wealthy soon clamored to have this charming little dog. Many were exported to the United States, where the bat ear was “set” by American enthusiasts.

In 1897, the first French Bulldog Club of America specialty show was held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York. Frenchies were all the rage! As many know, a French Bulldog was lost on the Titanic and a Frenchie, Ortino, was the beloved pet of one of the daughters of the Russian Royal family. His remains were found where the entire family was executed.

ApplyNBHOW TO APPLY NOSE BUTTER®

  • Tin – Dab a bit, appropriate for their size nose, across the top of the nose
  • Tube – Point away from eyes and swipe across nose
  • Apply 2-3x a day for 2-3 days until nose is smooth
  • Then use as needed for maintenance (1-3x weekly on average)

DISTRACT & DIVERT 

NOSE BUTTER will not harm your dog if they lick any off (or eat the whole tin-it has happened!), but we want it to soak in and get its job done. To keep your dog from licking NOSE BUTTER off try the following:

  • Give a cookie or treat before and after application (added benefit – they soon associate NOSE BUTTER with yummy treats)
  • Feed dinner (extra yummy)
  • Play a game
  • Go for a walk

FOR EXTREMELY DRY, CRUSTY, CRACKED NOSES

  • Apply 2-3x a day for 2-3 days
  • Test crusty area with tissue
  • If crust crumbles off drop back to maintenance application
  • If crust does not easily crumble off continue application 2-3x a day for 2-3 more days
  • Repeat test
  • Then use as needed for maintenance (may be daily for senior or compromised dogs)

ODDS & ENDS

  • NOSE BUTTER in the tin and the tube is same product, just different containers
  • NOSE BUTTER will do no harm if your dog licks some and swallows it (or eats the whole tin)
  • Dip a bit of NOSE BUTTER and warm it in the palm of your hand prior to application
  • Some prefer to scoop NOSE BUTTER out of the tin with a spoon or knife – it’s all good!
  • In summer – pop NOSE BUTTER into the fridge (envelope and all) for 10-15 minutes when it arrives to firm it up again
  • In winer – allow NOSE BUTTER to soften to room temperature (it is coming from far northern Minnesota after all)

MORE TIPS FOR SMOOTH NOSE SUCCESS

Many dogs loathe being controlled, held tightly or messed with in any way. Flat-faced dogs often stress a bit more because their breathing is already compromised, so they instinctively try to prevent having their noses covered.  Be FAST in applying NOSE BUTTER and they will not struggle as much.

MORE SUGGESTIONS

  • Gently tap NOSE BUTTER onto their nose while they are sleeping. If your dog wakes up, act casual, like you did not do anything
  • Give a treat that is gooey with a stronger smell (goat cheese, bit of peanut butter, tuna) with one hand  and quickly dab NOSE BUTTER on with the other hand

Don’t feel bad – It takes Steve and me BOTH to apply Nose Butter to 12 pound Gio. Embarrassing.

THE BLISSFUL DOG INGREDIENT FAQS

Everything that goes into The Blissful Dog products is sourced from human organic cosmetics and all natural supply sources. The exact same ingredients as you see in luxurious spa products are used in the products we make for your, and our, dogs. Questions? Email me!

SHEA BUTTER (Shay) Shea butter is the main ingredient used in your organic dog’s balms. All of our butters build from shea butter.  Cold pressed oil from the nuts of the Shea tree, it is used for its ability to moisturize and retain the elasticity of the skin. Shea butter has also been known to help protect the skin against the damaging effects of the sun while repairing cellular degeneration. Our shea butter is refined and deodorized without the use of harsh chemicals.Our shea butter is hand harvested, certified organic, and expeller pressed. Shea butter has quickly become a go-to butter for the most opulent of balms and luxurious body pampering. Your dog deserves the best and shea butter is it. The shea tree grows almost exclusively in Western Africa, where it is used as a food, cooking oil, beauty product and source of income. It takes approximately 15 years of growth before the tree begins to bear fruit. For more info here is our shea butter FAQs page.

SHEA OIL  is extremely high in Vitamins A, E and F. It provides skin with all the essential elements it needs for good balance, elasticity and tone. Shea Oil is the base for The Blissful Dog Shine On! Nose Polish™. Using shea oil enables your dog to have the same healthy ingredients as shea butter, but in an easy to apply oil form. It is not just melted down shea butter, is is processed differently to stay at a liquid form.

COCOA SEED BUTTER is an aromatic solid butter pressed from the roasted seeds of the Cacao tree. It softens at body temperature and adds a rich, creamy, thick consistency to our butters. There is no heavy chocolate smell or caffeine left in the butter we use, just a nutty goodness. Note: There is none of the active ingredient in dark chocolate in the Cacao Seed Butter. So, no harm to your precious dog!

ALMOND OIL is best known for its ability to soften, soothe, and re-condition the skin. It made from raw almond kernels and exceptionally rich in fatty acids. Note: Adding a bit of Almond Oil to a topically applied product is different from feeding your dog almonds. The oil is processed in a different manner than nuts for consumption. The almond oil in our products is safe for use on dogs.

COCONUT OIL is a renowned general moisturizing oil and serves as a protective layer, helping to retain the moisture in your skin. It is great for inflamed and irritated skin, and those with skin sensitivities. For years I had hesitated to use Coconut Oil, maybe it was all those summers slathered in Hawaiian Tropics suntan oil that I am paying the price for now. But after testing it, I knew that it had to be added to the mix.

CASTOR OIL comes from certified organic Castor beans. It is a hard, shiny oil that acts as a “barrier agent and protective medium against harsh conditions and extremes.” I resisted this one for a while, maybe thinking about having to ingest Castor Oil as a child did it, but it is such an amazing oil, I added it and am thrilled with the results. Note: There are none of the properties of the ricin that has been in the news (and Breaking Bad). The process that makes it oil eliminates that possibility.

COMFREY OIL infusion is made from certified organic Comfrey leaves and root (Symphytum officinale) infused (steeped) in a base of organic olive oil. Traditionally used for general wound healing, treatment of bruises and for skin cell growth. Comfrey grows throughout Europe, North America and western Asia. Its leaves are dark green and covered with short hairs.

CHAMOMILE INFUSION Chamomile is relaxing, cleansing, moisturizing, soothing, calming, cooling, anti-inflammatory, and is well known for reducing calluses.

BEESWAX is a wonderful substance secreted by worker honeybees. Beeswax has a higher melting temperature, so it helps the various butters keep their shape and ship better. Paw Butter™ and Elbow Butter™ organic dog butters have more beeswax since it acts as such an amazing protective barrier.

CALENDULA OIL is great for dry and damaged skin, skin inflammations, etc. It is an all around powerful addition to anything to do with skin or noses, paws or elbows. The Calendula plant has been used medicinally, in food, as a fabric dye, and cosmetics. This oil has been used for its anti-inflammatory properties as well as combating rough or scaly skin.

ST. JOHN’S WORT OIL that we use is made from freshly gathered St. Johns Wort flowers and infused in organic Olive oil, with Vitamin E oil added. Used externally is is a valuable anti-inflammatory which can help speed the healing of wounds, bruises, bee stings, and mild burns. Just a good herbal oil to use! You will see this ingredient in many organic dog products, such as our Paw and Elbow Butters.

ARGAN OIL is a glorious oil and exploding in popularity now. The active substances, triterpenoids, in Argan Oil offer many  protection benefits. These include tissue healing (scars), anti-inflammatory, sun-protective and disinfectant properties. The oil contains 80% unsaturated fatty acids. Back in the day argan oil was extracted from the nut after a goat ate the fruit. Yep, exactly what you are thinking! Thank goodness we don’t have to rely on goat poo for organ oil anymore.

PUMPKIN SEED OIL is a dark green oil that is very rich in beneficial fatty acids, antioxidants (Vitamin E, beta-carotene and zeaxanthin), and compounds such as phytosterols and delta-7-sterine that have many health benefits. Pumpkin seeds are macerated for their oil and plant constituents. This oil contains over 60% unsaturated fatty acids and is high in Omega 3 and Omega 6.

NEEM OIL has many benefits – both therapeutic and medicinal use. Neem Oil is anti-septic, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal. Used widely in creams, dental products, hair care products, and in gardens for natural pest control. Known for its ability to treat problematic skin conditions, we use Neem Oil in our Boo Boo Butter. This oil is really think and rich, contains a heavy odor. Trust me, undiluted it has a very strong smell!

JOJOBA OIL Jojoba is actually not an oil, but it is a liquid wax ester. Cold pressed from the Jojoba plant, it has fabulous moisturizing properties and is used extensively in the cosmetic industry.

GRAPE SEED OIL is a light oil that is rich in vitamins and minerals which makes it a nourishing addition to any product, especially massage oils, intended for dry, damaged or irritated skin. Note: As in some of the other ingredients, the usage of grapes oil is not considered harmful to dogs in any manner. It is processed and carries a different chemical base than what your dog would get from eating grapes.

french bulldog fawnDRY DOG NOSE INFO

“My dog’s nose is dry”. “My dog must be sick, her nose is warm.”

We have all heard that a warm or dry dog nose means a dog is sick and that all healthy dogs have moist, wet noses.

Actually, a dog’s noses can be a bit warm and be perfectly fine. Just as we have moments when we may feel a little hotter or flush and then fine in a few minutes, so can our dogs. A warm nose, with no other symptoms of illness may be no cause for concern. Of course, lethargy, fever or other symptoms may necessitate a trip to the vet.

A dry, cracked crusty nose CAN be cause for attention. NOSE BUTTER attention, that is! Of course, (blatant plug), we want you to start with using NOSE BUTTER® and take care of it…but let’s look at the WHY of the crusties.

ALL THE SCOOP ON THE CRUSTIES

Nasodigital Hyperkeratosis or Nasal Hyperkeratosis is an idiopathic (unknown cause) condition that is marked by the excessive formulation of nose or footpad crusts that vets call keratin or protein. Thick, crusty, hard, dry crud accumulates on the top of the nose, paw pads, or both. The accumulated dry keratin is usually most visible on the top of the nose and on the edges of the paw pads.  It is common in older dogs and certain breeds seem to have a genetic predisposition to the condition.

After thirty plus years of being active in the sport of showing dogs and working in the pet industry, I have seen a lot of conditions that crop up in certain breeds over and over again. Just like with people, it seems there are more and more immune system issues than ever before. I won’t go all vaccines are bad on you here, but I do believe the predisposition to this dry nose condition is caused by a slightly depressed or compromised immune system. For example, French Bulldogs are a dwarfed, brachycephalic breed. This means they have already started out with genetic strikes against them. An x-ray of a Frenchie will not look like an x-ray of a Great Pyrenees because we have created a shortened version of a dog in the Frenchie. The same genetic manipulation that has gone into creating those adorable bat ears and smushed faces has also depressed the immune system. One of the ways that dogs may possibly present with symptoms of a slightly weakened immune system is the protein overgrowth of nasal hyperkeratosis. No one did anything wrong, it is not “in bloodlines”, it just happens because the dog’s immune system is a bit weaker than a normal dog. Whew, I pontificated, didn’t I?

NOSE BUTTER and PAW BUTTER are the key line of defense…not getting all infomercial on you. But that is why I created this line of products…it all started with Frenchie crusties that did not want to go away!

Sensitivities to plastic bowls can cause some nose issues. Switch to stainless shell or a well-made ceramic pronto. All those bad chemicals that we now know were in water bottles have often been used in pet food bowls!

There is another, serious condition, called Pemphigus foliates, which DOES need veterinarian intervention. It is characterized by blisters on the dry nose of a dog. They can burst and form crust that can covers the nostrils and makes breathing difficult. This is an autoimmune skin disease that is so very common amongst our modern dogs and cats. I repeat, your dog’s dry nose in this case would certainly need a vet’s attention.

Some dogs may be sensitive to the sun and need a bit of sun protection. The Blissful Dog SUMMERTIME formula offers the best in organic protection for your dog. As we cannot use zinc oxide, the “Go-To” ingredient for organic sunscreen production, due to zinc toxicity in dogs, we searched high and low until we discovered appropriate ingredients. Learn more here.

This is intended to give you a bit of info on the various conditions that can cause your best friend to have a dry, crusty dog nose. If you need more info, visit the Merck Vet manual site, email us or Google it!

Labradoodle Nose is Almost Completely Healed!
We have been using salicylic acid on Magnum the Labradoodle’s nose. Then the split in his nostril was so bad that the Vet dermatologist recommended “Liquid bandage” for humans be applied. Needless to say Magnum hated this. After one application he ran into his crate when he saw me coming with the bottle. I was desperate and then I heard about Nose Butter! Magnum’s nose is almost completely healed. And his nose is now “inviting” for a snuggle! I can’t thank you enough. – Carol

The Blissful Dog NOSE BUTTER SummertimeSUN CARE FOR YOUR DOG’S NOSE

As you may know, finding an organic alternative for your dog’s summertime nose care can be daunting! Products are either packed full of unpronounceable chemicals or may have zinc oxide (really bad for dogs).

There has been a lot of info in the news that the sunscreens we thought were helping us prevent scary skin issues may not be so wonderful after all. It is up to us to read, learn and make good decisions not just for our own sun care, but for our pets also.

ORGANIC INGREDIENTS FOR NOSE BUTTER SUMMERTIME

For years people have asked us about a sunscreen formulation, something that was organic that would help shield our dog’s noses from the sun. As I began researching and developing the formulation I realized there were no cut and dried easy answers. Drat…I love easy answers! Zinc oxide is the “go-to” ingredient for organic human sun products, but is a BIG no-no for dogs. Zinc toxicity is a real condition and is much easier for a dog to develop than I initially thought. So that ingredient was out!

Luckily, we have other blissful options in our organic garden such as red raspberry oil, carrot seed oil and more. NOSE BUTTER SUMMERTIME INFO
