BOSTON TERRIER NOSE BUTTER® THE NATURAL SOLUTION FOR YOUR BOSTON'S DRY NOSE

Boston Terriers have an enchanting expression, those chocolate eyes are pools of dog love, and that classic black and white coloring (or brindle or sable, of course) makes for an eye-catching canine gentleman (or lady). Unfortunately, many of our beloved flat-faced dogs, like the Boston Terrier have  chronic dry, cracked or even crusty nose. BOSTON TERRIER NOSE BUTTER® to the nose rescue!

Many Bostons have a dry nose with some rough spots or a little crust. Others may develop an extreme form of dryness which presents as layers of crusty skin build-up that looks like oyster shells or scabs, if your Boston's nose has that level of crustiness it could be Nasal Hyperkeratosis (more info below & HERE). The good news is NOSE BUTTER® works for all levels of Boston Terrier nose dryness and FAST!

YOUR BOSTON TERRIER WAS ACTUALLY BRED TO DO A CERTAIN JOB

Your Boston may not have been bred to hunt birds, track escaped prisoners or hold bears at bay, but he WAS bred to find and dispatch of vermin aka rats. Thankfully, he has moved on to a better job, that of your best friend and companion. Back to Boston Terrier History Lesson 101…the early Boston Terriers had to find the rats and eliminate them to earn their keep. That required sniffing them out and you can guess the rest. 

A dry, cracked nose doesn't catch and capture all the good info that dogs need to make decisions and feel confident. Not only does a dry nose interfere with their sniffing ability, it can also lead to a feeling of being unsettled. Like how we feel when cut off from internet access or can't get cell phone service.

NOSE BUTTER® smooths and nourishes your Boston’s nose, helping them look and feel better all the way around. Not only does he look much better with a smooth, shiny nose, he feels better physically, as he can breathe much more easily. Your Boston also feels more confident and self-assured when he's getting his dog info.

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.
