Affenpinscher Nose Butter® Keeps Your Affie's Nose Healthy and Smooth, Using All Natural Ingredients

Your Affenpinscher Needs a Healthy Nose

Did you know Affenpinschers were originally bred to eliminate rats in barns, stables, and homes? Hundreds of years of DNA is urging your sweet Affie to use their sniffer to find and kill rats.

A healthy dog nose acts like flypaper to catch and hold scent particles on the damp surface of the nose. If your dog's nose is dry or rough the smells will not stick. This prevents your dog from getting info. Remember the last time you had ZERO bars on your cellphone? Yep, that's how not getting info feels for your dog.

Not only is a dry nose physically uncomfortable for your dog, but it can also cause stress to their doggy psyche. See why a healthy nose helps your Affenpinscher be more secure and confident?

Little Noses Need Moisturizing, Too!

How to Best Apply Nose Butter

The Nose Butter Basics

#1 Tip - For quicker absorption warm Nose Butter prior to using
• To warm; stick in your pocket, bra, or scoop some out & warm in palm (see image)
• Open the tin or tube
• Gently control your dog's face (side of face or under their chin)
• Avoid holding them too tightly - that's a trigger for many dogs
• 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
• Rub it in a bit, you do not have to rub it in completely as it melts quickly, especially if warm
• 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)

Applying Nose Butter isn't rocket science...BUT

Until you've tried to hold an uncooperative, frightened8-pound dog with the strength and flexibility of a Cirque de Soleil acrobat, Piranha teeth, and an eardrum rupturing scream and dab something on their nose, you haven't experienced true frustration.

Our littles know they are small and put on a big tough front. But they are well aware of their small size and how easily they can be injured.

Dogs are often triggered by being held tightly. This may come from when they were puppies. Puppy play involves a lot of wrestling and play-fight. It's not fun for dogs (or us) to have siblings pile on, hold us down and make us feel helpless. (I'm looking at my three sisters).

If your little dog is also flat-faced, they may fight and struggle to protect their already hindered ability to breathe.

Tossing out some additional tips!

Gently wrap your dog in a blanket or towel to control their legs. Then apply.

Complete opposite is to let them stand and dab it on. Like shoeing a tiny horse, they can keep their flight or fight instincts intact.

Stay relaxed and positive and be very generous with treats and your dog will soon enjoy, or at least tolerate, Nose Butter time.

• Apply 2-3x a day (do the best you can, 2-3x a day is a good goal)
• After 2-3 days of using Nose Butter multiple times daily, gently rub the nose with some tissue and see if any of the crust easily crumbles off
• If it does not EASILY 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 temptation to pick. We get it, you just want it gone. Stay strong!

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

We babble on about distracting your dog to allow easy application of their Nose Butter. The thing is...it works!

Remember, warm Nose Butter up a bit so it is absorbed quickly! #1

• 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, they soon equate Nose Butter with treats.

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

A Medical Condition is a health impairment resulting from a disease or injury or of idiopathic origins. Some condions can be cured, the majority can be managed or controlled.

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.

Which is Best? Tin or Tube?

• Tubes allow for no-mess application.
• Tins offer hands-on application

The .15 oz lip-balm size tube of Nose Butter® is the perfect size for small noses, travel or to try out. It is .63" across, so a bit over ½ inch.

The .50 oz tube is .87" across, so over ¾ but not an inch.

What Size Should I Get?

Nose Butter is available in five sizes of tins and three tube sizes. Why so many? Dogs come in all sizes from Chinese Cresteds to Tibetan Mastiffs, so choose accordingly.

If you only have one small dog decide if you prefer the tin or tube and go from there.

If you have several small dogs who need Nose Butter, consider the 3 pack of lip-balm sized ones or at least a -ounce tin.

Why So Many Dog Breed Labels?

Nose Butter® is the exact same product no matter the label. The dog breed labels celebrate canine diversity and our dog geekness.

Great product

This has worked miracles on my Walker’s nose. I was using vitamin E before and it didn’t work near as well as this. I would highly recommend this product.

Happy Nose

Our dog had issues with their nose cracking to where part of their nose would peel off. The nose butter has made their nose so much better and feeling better too.

Relief!

My dogs nose has been excessively cracked, dry, and in some spots peeling from whatever is happening. We had a bleeding issue that resulted in a emergency vet visit. Luckily, she had a cut in her nose where all the swelling was occurring. We have used the nose balm for three weeks and what an improvement. He nose is still dry but with the nose balm, the other issues have subsided. I can even apply the balm without incident any longer. I am thankful for this product. It has been a wonderful relief for our Aussie!

Great Stuff

The Vet told me Teddy had colly nose, thought I would try the Blissful Dog nose butter. After a few applications on his nose and snout & some sores on his ears they looked good, now I only apply the nose butter every couple of days. During this hot weather I noticed him nipping at himself which caused quite a few scabs and welts all over his body, I thought why not try the nose butter, I applied the nose butter to the scabs & sores, it helped decrease the itching and scabs, they are almost all gone by now.

Miracle Remedy

My Saint Bernard's nose has been dry & cracked for years. Nose looked discolored from the dryness. ONE use and his nose was perfectly shiny black again! I was so shocked! He started getting a little dry (but no discoloration) 2 weeks later, so used one more time. I love the tube butter. It's easy to apply like a big chapstick for his nose. The paw butter tin is working great on the pads of his feet. Those were worse and taking a little longer since I haven't been consistent. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I only wish I found this product sooner. I will never be without it again.

Better than I expected

This product is amazing Banjo’s nose was dry, crusty and cracking. He suffers from Collie Nose and was being treated with steroid drops. These worked but continued use is not recommended. Banjo lost his hair above his nose and also his brown pigmented nose turned pink.
After a few months using the Nose Butter his nose back to normal with the brown nose starting to return and the hair is coming back.
I would highly recommend this product.
Cheers Iain from Australia.

It works!

The nose butter restored my golden retriever’s nose. It took closer to 2 weeks to achieve the results with applications of the butter two times per day. My only request is to find a container that offers improved-design and is easier to open and the seal. I will try the tube next time instead of the tin can with screw on/off threads.
