Basset Nose Butter® for Your Basset Hound's Hard-Working Nose

Shut your eyes and think BASSET HOUND. What popped into your mind? Did you picture a Basset trailing a scent, nose to the ground with those long ears wafting the smells up to their nose? Sure you did!  

Your Basset's Super Nose

Your Basset's nose may be a bit dry or extremely rough and dry. Nasal Hyperkeratosis is a condition in which your Basset's nose is covered in layers of scabby skin (more info in tabs below. No worries, Basset Hound Nose Butter® works on all dry dog nose problems.

Your Basset may never run with 40 other Bassets baying at decibel 100 as they chase woodland creatures, but centuries of trailing smells IS hard-wired into his genetics. The Basset was specifically bred to lock in on a smell and follow it without hesitation. Their long ears flopped, waved and funneled the smells up from the earth into their noses. Their short, stocky legs kept them at perfect sniffing height...almost ground level. 

A Dry Nose Affects Your Basset's Mojo

A rough, dry nose keeps your Basset from gathering up the smells, leaving him uncertain and off-balance. The moistness acts like canine scent gathering flypaper, so if your Basset’s nose is dry and can't grab smells, he will continually lick his nose in a futile attempt to regain the smell catching moisture. That makes it worse, like when we lick chapped lips.

Think of it as driving through an unfamiliar area and having NO SERVICE on your cell phone. You'd be nervous, stressed. That's how your Basset feels with a less than stellar sniffer…off-balanced, low-key stressed.

Our Basset Hound Nose Butter moisturizes and nourishes the dry tissue of your dog’s nose. After a few days of Nose Butter your Basset will look and feel better physically, plus, that legendary Basset joie de vivre will return.

Works very well
So glad to hear it worked for your Pyr. Our Great Pyrenees, Zoe, would run to rub her Nose Butter off and we would all laugh, as she was letting me know who the boss was and it wasn't me. After a few treats and pets, she accepted it with her usual gracious dignity. Thanks again for letting us know. -Kathy

We love hearing that! He is one lucky dog to have had you pick him! Thanks for letting us know the Nose Butter helped. Yeah, I wanted that item first in line, so I had play tricks and added the 1 to the start of the name. That worked better than digging into computer code for three days ;-D Kathy
