ST. BERNARD HISTORY INFO

St. Bernard HistorySaint 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.

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 as needed for maintenance (1-3x weekly on average)

DISTRACT & DIVERT 

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)
  • The new nose leather underneath may be lighter in color when crust comes off

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.

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.

Great dog nosesDry 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. So, a warm nose, with no other symptoms of illness is 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. 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.

Nasodigital Hyperkeratosis is an idiopathic (unknown cause) condition that is marked by the excessive formulation of nose or footpad crusts that vets call keratin. It is common in older dogs and certain breeds seem to have a genetic predisposition to the condition. 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 at the edges of the paw pads. This is not life-threatening and is considered cosmetic, but we want to eradicate this condition! 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!

The paw pad variety of this is called Footpad Hyperkeratosis. Hyperkeratosis is thought to run in bloodlines and results in severe digital hyperkeratosis (overgrowth of crusts and crud). Once again, not life threatening, but needs to be addressed for their comfort and your peace of mind.

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 sunscreen. Shea Butter offers some natural SPF protection, the exact numbers are not available, as sources say anywhere from 9 to 30. I will have a sunscreen option soon (by spring 2014 for sure).

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!

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 Oil™. Using she 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.

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 is 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 certified 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. I use beeswax that is certified organic and when I can get it it, from Minnesota bees. Beeswax has a higher melting temperature, so it helps the various butters in the tubes keep their shape and ship bit 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 great addition to anything to do with skin or noses, paws or elbows. Nothing but the best for your organic dog! The 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.

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 SHIPPING INFO

Orders ship within 24-48 hours of receipt (not counting Sundays or holidays). Nothing short of a blizzard, zombie apocalypse or that good looking Alcide guy from True Blood showing up will slow down shipping. I don’t get out much, but if I am going to be away from The Blissful Dog World Headquarters (aka-home) for more than a long weekend I ship from my travels OR let you know in the order verification email.

The Priority Mail option includes a FREE freezer pack during summer months (US only). Highly recommended if you live on the surface of the sun aka Arizona, Texas, California or other sweltering locations. As an FYI, I don’t include a freezer pack if it is 60 degrees here and 60 degrees where it is going – keeping that carbon footprint as small as possible! 8-)

SHIPPING USA

Your shipping charges are based upon the actual weight of the item you have selected and the exact USPS charges. There are no added handling or service charges. For some reason handling charges bother me…

Your order will usually arrive from here in the far north to your mailbox within the US in 3-7 days. Of course, there are exceptions, but that is a good rule of thumb – er – paw.

FREE Priority MailUSA FREE PRIORITY MAIL UPGRADE WITH PURCHASE OVER $50

Spend over $50 and your order is automatically upgraded to PRIORITY MAIL. No coupon needed. USPS United States Shipping ONLY.

USA ONLY FREE PRIORITY SHIPPING WITH PURCHASE OVER $75

SHIPPING INTERNATIONALLY

Shipping charges the exact USPS charges of the weight for your purchase. There are no added handling or service charges.

International time frames vary from country to country. Sadly, some orders have taken 3-4 weeks to arrive to some countries. I wish I had that teleportation thing worked out and I could just zap your items to you, but until then the USPS will have to do.

I honor and feel your pain on how expensive international shippings is. Using the exact weight allows me to offer you the best rates possible. Tracking is not available after your package leaves the US. Tracking will stop in Chicago, IL, which the exit point for mail in my area leaving the USA. That does not mean it is stuck there, just that the tracking ends there.
