Does Your Collie Have a Dry Nose? Or Collie Nose?
Collies have a range of nose issues, as you probably know, from a bit of a dry nose all the way to Nasal Hyperkeratosis and a separate condition known as Collie Nose. Collie Nose Butter can help naturally treat all ranges of Collie nose issues, read on for specifics.
Nose Butter Helps Collie Nose Issues
Collies are beautiful dogs by any standard. Their faces are refined elegance and that glorious coat makes you want to bury your face in it! And of course, many of us have such fond memories of Lassie being that best friend we all dreamed of.
Unfortunately, many of these lovely dogs suffer from a condition commonly called Collie Nose. Collie Nose Butter, while not touted as a cure, when used as directed, will help alleviate Collie Nose symptoms. Keep reading...more info on all-natural treatment for Collie Nose below.
Collies often have a bit of a dry nose, but they can also have Nasal Hyperkeratosis, in which the nose is overgrown with excess nose skin tissue (a protein overgrowth). The good news is any level of dry nose issue can be easily treated and maintained with regular Collie Nose Butter usage.
Collie Nose and How It Affects Your Collie
There are two types of lupus (immune system attacks itself) in dogs: systemic and discoid. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is rare in dogs (thank goodness). SLE attacks various tissues in the body; kidneys, skin, heart, lungs, nervous system, blood, and/or joints. This is usually fatal.
Collie Nose or Discoid Lupus Erythematosus (DLE) is a type of SLE, but is localized and doesn't spread through the entire system. DLE is skin specific and the sores are confined to the face and nose. Collies have a genetic predisposition towards developing DLE. A biopsy is required to 100% diagnose DLE.
First Collies lose the pigment around their nose and the nose texture gets abnormally smooth. Their nose loses all the texture and feels slick. Next, crust and open sores or ulcerated areas form. The nose, lips, ears, the skin around the eyes, and occasionally the genitals are affected. (see image)
Exposure to the sun aggravates this condition and they must have sun protection. There are precious few organic sunscreen ingredients available that really help shield from the sun’s rays. Zinc oxide is the most well known, but ingestion can cause zinc toxicity in dogs. So, the sun protection options with no zinc that are natural are very limited.
