NOSE BUTTER Makes Your Dog Smarter!
That may sound like a ridiculous statement, but I promise, it will make sense!
Your Dog's Dry Nose Can Cause Stress & Anxiety
Your dog gets much of his info from his sense of smell. A healthy, moist nose snags the scent particles that carry canine information as they float by. A dry nose cannot capture the heavenly smells your dog depends on for info. This can lead to frustration and a lack of self confidence. Your dog knows info is out there, but he cannot get it.
A chronically dry nose can lead to a life-time of your dog not being at their best. Your dog knows there is a world of info just a sniff away and his dry nose blocks him from accessing it.
Think of your dog having a dry nose as being like this…you are driving along an unfamiliar, dark stretch of unfamiliar road and feel the unmistakeable jerk of a flat tire. You pull over, tap your phone and see NO BARS. You lift your phone to the sky in a vain attempt to capture the elusive bars. It is frustrating and for many of us, it's scary! This is how your dog feels when he is unable to sniff the air freely and get the info he wants and needs.
By using NOSE BUTTER® to moisturize your dog’s nose and revive and soften the dry nose tissue with layers of natural butters and oils.
When your dog has a healthy, moist, sniffing on point nose, he looks better and feels better physically. With no more chunks of crust on his nose, he is now able to breathe more freely.
SO...Healthy Moist Nose = Happier Dog Because They're Getting All Their Info = A SMARTER DOG!
I told you we'd get there...

NASAL HYPERKERATOSIS INFO
NASAL HYPERKERATOSIS AKA CRUSTY CRUD, BARNACLE NOSE
Is your dog’s nose EXTREMELY dry? Does it look like barnacles are growing on it? Are there layers or chunks of crust that crack and bleed? If your dog’s nose could be described as extremely dry, or looks like the BEFORE noses in the image above, it may be Nasal Hyperkeratosis. Rest assured, it is not caused by diet, genetics, playing in the dirt or anything you can control.
Nasodigital or Nasal Hyperkeratosis is an idiopathic condition, which means unknown cause ¯\(°_o)/¯ that is marked by the excessive formulation of nose crust that vets call keratin, (vet-speak for protein). It actually IS layers of skin tissue that has grown wild over on the nose. This condition isn't life-threatening and most veterinarians consider Nasal Hyperkeratosis cosmetic. But there are medical, cosmetic and mental health reasons that this dry nose condition can affect your dog's well being. It has to be uncomfortable for your dog. Your dog cannot breathe as easily. It’s unattractive, of course.
Most importantly, your dog is not getting the scents and smells they ned to feel secure and confident. A healthy moist nose snags good smells that float by and provide your dog with info. A dry nose is not going to capture the info packed smells. This can lead to frustration and a lack of self confidence. Your dog knows info is out there, but he cannot get it. Like us looking for a gas station in a sketchy neighborhood with ZERO bars on our phone. MORE INFO HERE.
