Is Your Tibetan Spaniel's Nose Rough? Dry? Maybe Even Crusty of Flaky?
No, Not a Pekingese, Not a Lhasa Apso
The Tibetan Spaniel is a loving companion, bred for centuries to sound an alarm and be the Little Lion at your side. Like his flat-faced cousins, the Pekingese, Lhasa Apso and Japanese Chin, the Tibbie, as they are affectionately called, often has a dry or crusty nose. Having a dry nose can affect your Tibetan Spaniel more ways than just cosmetically. It can inhibit their ability to capture smells and lead to anxiety.
Your Tibbie's Dry Nose
A healthy Tibetan Spaniel nose serves as smell capturing flypaper. Floating scent particles adhere to the wet surface of a healthy nose and are sent to your dog’s scent glands for classification, storage and decision making.
Tibetan Spaniel Nose Support
Your Tibbie instinctively knows to keep their nose damp to be able to get the maximum amount of info. If their nose is dry, they lick it, like we lick chapped lips, in an attempt to moisten it. With a dry nose, your dog isn’t getting all the info they need, which can lead to anxiety and stress.
Tibetan Spaniel nose issues can range from a bit of dryness to the severe form of canine nose dryness, a condition called nasal hyperkeratosis. Nose Butter moisturizes your Tibbie’s nose with all the luxurious butters and oils you see in the ingredients list. This keeps your dog’s nose in tip top sniffing shape. And your Tibbie stays confident and sassy.
