BLOODHOUND NOSE BUTTER® FOR YOUR DOG'S OPTIMAL NOSE HEALTH AND CONDITION

Bloodhounds have the most famous noses in all of the canine world. Movies, tv shows and books are filled with images and tales (tails?) of Bloodhounds using their powerful noses. Release the hounds! And a baying pack of excited Bloodhounds go tearing off into the woods after the escaped criminals. 

Bloodhounds often have a bit of dryness, even a little crustiness around the nostrils and NOSE BUTTER® will moisturize that in days. Then  regular usage will keep your dog's nose in shape. But, if your Bloodhound's nose is covered with crusty layers of crud and it looks like layers of oyster shells or some creature on a Hobbit movie, it could be Nasal Hyperkeratosis (more info below & HERE). The good news is NOSE BUTTER® works for all ranges of nose dryness.

YOUR BLOODHOUND WAS BRED TO DO ONE THING...SNIFF

The Bloodhound is synonymous with the ultimate in canine nose prowess. For over 1000 years dogs of this type have been bred to follow a trail.

bloodhound historyThe monks of St. Hubert in Belgium worked hard on establishing the bloodlines and working with the various traits of the breed. They are credited with breeding the best tracking dog on earth. 

Your Bloodhound may never track anything more than a pizza box out from under your kid's bed. But that does not mean a moist nose operating at maximum smell gathering capacity isn’t important!

Hundreds and hundreds of years of breeding for maximum scenting ability has been hard-wired into your Bloodhounds DNA. Even more so than other dogs, your Bloodhound MUST have his nose working at full sniffing power to feel his best. 

Bloodhound NOSE BUTTER® moisturizes and nourishes your dog’s rough, dry nose. After a few days of NOSE BUTTER® usage your Bloodhound will look better AND feel better. The physical benefits are apparent, but the physchological benefits are just as important. With his genetics demanding full sniffing power, your Bloodhound will be more confident, grounded and secure if he is getting all the info he needs. A smooth, moist nose = happy, confident Bloodhound.

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.
