Bernese Mountain Dog Nose Butter



Bernese Mountain Dog

Bernese Mountain Dog NOSE BUTTER®  Moisturizes Your Berner's Nose...Naturally

Bernese Mountain Dogs often have a dry nose which ranges from a bit of dryness to a more extreme dryness called nasal hyperkeratosis (more info below and HERE). The good news is NOSE BUTTER® works for all ranges of Berner nose dryness.

Your Bernese Mountain Dog Was Bred To Be A Hardworking Farm Dog

The Bernese Mountain dog originated in the Swiss mountains where they drove or herded dairy cattle, watched over the farm and offered companionship to the farmers. (CLICK for my article on how the Berner was saved from near extinction).

Your Berner may never do any harder work than keeping the cat from climbing in your lap, but nature is still telling him to keep his nose moist and pliable. The moistness acts as smell catching flypaper, catching the scent particles that give your dog info. Dry nose = less info!

Why Having A Healthy Nose Is Important To Your Bernese Mountain Dog

Your Berner counts on his sense of smell to get all the info he needs to make good canine decisions. That info is hard to get with a dry, crusty nose. How do you feel when you have no bars on your cell phone? Stressed, on-edge, out of the loop and anxious? That's how your Berner feels without getting his sensory info.

Bernese Mountain Dog NOSE BUTTER® moisturizes and nourished the dry nose leather (technical term) of your dog’s nose. After a few days of NOSE BUTTER® usage your dog will look better and feel better. Your Bernese Mountain Dog will be more secure, grounded and confident when he gets the info needed to make good decisions.

NASAL HYPERKERATPSIS YOUR DOG'S EXTREMELY DRY NOSE

 NASAL HYPERKERATOSIS

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 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. And the good news is Nose Butter® works on it!

 

Nasodigital or Nasal Hyperkeratosis is an idiopathic condition, which means unknown cause ¯\(°_o)/¯ that causes excessive formulation of dry 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 need to feel secure and confident. A healthy nose snags good smells that float by and provides 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.

 

You know you feel when have NO SERVICE as you drive in an unfamiliar area? Probably frustrated, anxious and maybe terrified. Your dog experiences those same emotions when they can't get the info they need to make good dog decisions.
