Dry dog noses can range from just a bit dry to a more extreme dryness, like the noses above, called nasal hyperkeratosis. While not life-threatening, it's uncomfortable, unattractive and can cause your dog stress.
Many dogs have a temporary dry nose caused by; environment (dry climate, dry winter air, etc.), some medication, certain illnesses, and more. The noses that look like barnacles are growing in crusty layers, with rough dry tissue that may crack and bleed usually exhibit Nasal Hyperkeratosis. The good news is all levels of dry dog noses can be managed with Nose Butter.
Nasal Hyperkeratosis causes nose tissue to grow uncontrollably, covering the nose in scab-like skin. Our research leads us to believe is is caused by a slightly depressed immune system. Dogs with extreme body types are often at risk; extremely flat-faced, big, small, bully, etc. Want to know more about Nasal Hyperkeratosis? More dry dog nose info here.
