BEAGLE NOSE BUTTER® KEEPS YOUR BEAGLE'S NOSE IN TOP SNIFFING SHAPE
Your Beagle has a hardworking nose, famously known as one of the top sniffers in the canine world. Only their Basset and Bloodhound cousins have more sniffing mojo. They put their noses to the ground and follow the scent…focused on with single-minded determination.
Your Beagle's nose may be dry, with some rough patches or even a bit of crust. Or their nose may be covered by layers of cracked, crusty tissue, that looks like barnacles or tree bark. If that describes your dog's nose it could be a condition called Nasal Hyperkeratosis (more info in tabs below & HERE). Our Beagle NOSE BUTTER® works on all types of dry dog nose issues from a touch of dryness to full-on Nasal Hyperkeratosis.
YOUR BEAGLE HAS CENTURIES OF DNA TELLING HIM TO SNIFF!
The most your Beagle may ever track is the kids as they run around the backyard, but that doesn't mean his sense of smell is not important.
All dogs rely on their sense of smell for most of their info gathering. To have a dry, crusty nose inhibits their ability to gather all the info they need. Think of it as being in an unfamiliar area with not even one bar on your cell phone. You would probably be nervous and tense. That is how your Beagle feels when they cannot get info via their super sniffing dog nose.
Nature tells dogs, especially scenthounds, to keep their nose moist and pliable. The moistness acts as smell catching flypaper, catching the scent particles that give your dog info.
BEAGLE NOSE BUTTER® moisturizes and nourished the dry tissue of your dog’s nose. After a few days of NOSE BUTTER® your Beagle will look and feel better physically. Getting all the info they need makes for a happier, more confident dog. They are on top of all that is going on in their kingdom, even if the kingdom is your house and yard, not a forest full of foxes.
BEAGLE NOSE BUTTER® SIZES: 1, 2, 4, 8 & 16 OZ | TUBE SIZE OPTIONS: .15 (Lip Balm Size), .50 & 2 OZ

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.
