shiba inu has dry nose

Does Your Shiba Inu Have a Rough, Dry or Even Crusty Nose?

It's easy to see why the Shiba Inu has grabbed the attention of the dog-loving public in the last few years. Their plush good looks, quizzical expression, and that sassy Shiba ATTITUDE would make any dog lover take notice.

Your Shiba's Dry Nose

Like many dogs, the sassy Shiba has a predisposition toward having a dry or crusty nose. Your Shiba's dry nose may be a dull, dry nose or the more extreme form of dryness, a condition known as nasal hyperkeratosis. Nasal hyperkeratosis presents as nose tissue growing uncontrollably over your Shiba's nose in chunks or layers. No matter how dry your dog's nose is, Nose Butter smooths, softens, and revives your Shiba’s dry, crusty or cracked nose. Then regular maintenance keeps it looking great.

All Natural Nose Butter Moisturizes Your Dog's Dry Nose

How To Use Nose Butter

#1 Tip - Warm product before application for faster absorption
• To warm; stick in your pocket, bra, or scoop some out & warm in palm
• Open the tin or tube
• Gently control your dog's face (jowls, side of face or under their chin)
• Don't use a head-lock - that is a big trigger
• Tag Team - have someone hold & you apply
• (Tin) Scoop a bit out appropriate to the size of your dog’s nose
• Dab it on their nose (doesn't have to be precise)
• You do not have to rub it in, it will melt quickly, especially if you warmed it up a bit
• Distract to keep them from licking or rubbing it off
• Repeat 2-3x a day for 1-3 days or until nose is back in shape
• Then use as needed for maintenance (usually 1-2x a week)

It's not rocket science, but there are tips that make application faster and easier for you and your dog.

• Give a cookie or treat before, during and after application
• Cuddles, pets, repeat as needed
• Feed their dinner (with extra yummies)
• Play your dog's fave game
• Throw a ball
• Go for a walk
• Pet them, lavish praise on them for their overall good dog-ness
• TIP! Not only does something positive (like cookies) take their mind off having something done to them, it also build an association between GOOD STUFF and Nose Butter application.

• Apply as in the previous tip
• After 2-3 days of multiple daily application (do the best you can, 2-3x a day is great), test the crusty stuff with a bit of tissue and see if it will crumbles off
• If it does NOT crumble right off (it will look like black, greasy dirt), keep applying Nose Butter 2-3x a day until it easily, without picking, comes off.
• Resist the urge to pick as tempting as it may be.

The crusty stuff is actually skin and hurts your dog if you pick it off, just like us pulling a scab off a skinned knee too soon.

Nose Butter Answers

The Bad News is there is no CURE for Nasal Hyperkeratosis, it is a condition.

If you stop using Nose Butter, the dryness and crust will probably come back.

The Good News is maintenance usage of Nose Butter keeps the Nasal Hyperkeratosis under control.

When our hands are really cracked and dry we can use lotion to get them in shape, but we can't slather lotion on our hands once and be moisturized for life.

Like cutting your dog's toenails...Nose Butter is part of their health care regimen.

Ouch! That stung! It's not that your dog dislikes Nose Butter (we hope not), they DO dislike being held tightly and restrained.

Bully and flat-faced breeds already have compromised breathing systems due to their adorable flat faces. If held tightly they will struggle to protect their breathing.

Toy breeds know they are small and will often put up an unbelievable tussle to get away.

Dogs are often triggered by being held tightly or controlled. This may come from puppy play, when they wrestle and play-fight. It's not fun for dogs (or us) to have siblings pile on and make us feel helpless. (I'm looking at my three sisters).

Also, keep the mood upbeat and fun. Make a game of applying Nose Butter and follow it up with treats and most dogs can be won over.

Greta loves it

Our 7 month old GSP pup's nose feels much better with her nose butter. After several attempts. we finally distracted her long enough for it to soak in.

Better than anything I've tried!

I have used almost everything and nothing helped my dogs nose. My dog would get so upset when I would touch her nose. Since using your product my dogs nose looks amazing! She sees me get the little tin and jumps on the couch and waits for me to put it on her nose instead of the old running away and hiding she used to do. I'm a forever customer. It works for my dry hands as well!

Effective Beyond Belief

The Blissful Dog Nose Butter worked so well and so quickly on our fourteen year old ChihuahuaXRat Terrier that I would not have believed it if I hadn’t witnessed it for myself. After only six applications, her nose was transformed and looked like it had when she was young. She seems more comfortable and no more incidents of her nose snagging on fabric. I am sharing my experience of the Blissful Dog Nose Butter with the dog people in my circle including our veterinarian. Easy to order, delivered quickly, economical and, most importantly, effective!

Works Fast and Amazing

I have a St. Bernard and she sticks her nose into the dirt, all the time. This product works fast, and she like the taste when she licks her nose. She is playful, so when she sees the tin she runs, but only onto the couch. I think she does that to get comfortable, lol

Excellent Product

Works great on our Cane Corso. She doesn’t mind this at all because it’s unscented which is perfect! Her nose is looking fabulous! So glad we found Nose Butter!

My cockers had badly chapped and cracked noses. One application of Nose Butter and problem solved. Now only need it once a week to keep things nice.

YES! That is the kind of news we love to hear! Cockers have more dry nose issues than is fair. We're thrilled yours are doing well. Thank you so much for taking time to leave us a review. We appreciate each one!
