SAINT BERNARD DRY NOSE TREATMENT
WHAT IS THIS CRUSTY STUFF ON MY ST BERNARD’S NOSE?
Does your St. Bernard buddy have an over-all dry nose or are there patches of dryness and you can tell it needs some attention? That crusty is probably not accumulated food, a scab, dirt or even caused by what your Saint is eating, it may be a generalized dry nose that can be easily taken care of with NOSE BUTTER®.
NOSE BUTTER® moisturizes your Saints nose and fast. While not as cool as brandy in a flask, NOSE BUTTER® has a benevolent St. Bernard on the label for you to enjoy.
If the crust on your Saints nose is thicker, covers the entire nose or looks like something on Game of Thrones, then your St Bernard may have a condition known as Nasal Hyperkeratosis aka crusty nose stuff. Yes, a long, complicated name for a simple to remedy condition.
Nasal Hyperkeratosis is an idiopathic condition ¯\(°_o)/¯ (scientific lingo for they don’t have any idea what causes it) that creates a protein/keratin overgrowth (keratin-more fancy lingo). While it is more often found on dog noses, it does occur on their paw pads.
This skin gone wild overgrowth is often seen in older dogs, dogs on some medications or suffering from a range of diseases.
Plus, certain breeds or breed types have a genetic predisposition to Nasal Hyperkeratosis. Bully breeds, toy breeds, the mastiff breeds, and anything with a heavy, chunky body type seem prone to this condition.
Now you know what it IS, let’s talk about what will get rid of it…NOSE BUTTER®!
NOSE BUTTER® is individually handcrafted (by 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: Original NOSE BUTTER® has a dash of essential oils or aromatherapy (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 essential oils we use in The Blissful Dog products, we respect that some may want a completely unscented version.

ST. BERNARD HISTORY INFO
Saint Bernard History: The St. Bernard possibly originated from Mastiff or molosser type dogs brought to the Alps by the ancient Romans. Alpine Mastiff, Tibetan Mastiffs, Mastiffs and more contributed to the Saint. The history of this breed is fascinating, for more visit here.
Bits & Pieces: Brutal winters from 1816 to 1818 led to many more avalanches, killing many of the breeding dogs as they attempted rescues. In the 1850s Newfoundlands were brought in and crossed with many of the remaining Saints to bring vigor to the tightly inbred survivors. They believed the Newfie coat would help protect them from the frigid temperatures. But the long coat of the Newfies weighed the dogs down, holding ice and snow, rendering them much less useful as a rescue dog.
That Barrel? The monks of the St. Bernard Hospice deny that any St. Bernard ever carried casks or small barrels around their necks. Sir Edwin Landseer’s 1820 painting, Alpine Mastiffs Reanimating a Distressed Traveler, was probably the source of the myth. Ever the savvy marketers, the monks kept casks around for photographs with tourists.
