BOXER NOSE BUTTER® NATURALLY MOISTURIZES YOUR BOXER'S DRY NOSE

Boxers are a unique combination of elegance and goofiness. They push their way into your heart, feet first of course, and take over. Sadly, along with that expressive face often comes a dry or crusty nose. 

Many Boxers have a bit of a dry nose, maybe some crustiness OR the dryness may be more extreme like the Boxer shown below. YIKES! This condition may be Nasal Hyperkeratosis and more info is found HERE. Don't worry! Boxer NOSE BUTTER® was created for all ranges of Boxer nose dryness.

CAN YOU IMAGINE YOUR BOXER HOLDING A BEAR DOWN?

Your Boxer’s ancestors were the German Bullenbeisser, a cross of Mastiff and Bulldog types. This impressive dogs were bred to find, follow and hold bears, wild boars, deer. Yes, that is right. They chased bears and held them down until the hunter arrived. 

After a series of wars and industrial events decimated the huge forests owned by the royals, the Boxer was reinvented as the quintessential farm and family dog. Hang in there, we are meandering our way back to your Boxer's nose!

A MOIST, HEALTHY NOSE IS A BIG DEAL TO YOUR BOXER

For hundreds of years your Boxer’s ancestors sniffed out and tracked wild game deep in the German forests. This took concentration and a great nose! Even though your Boxer may not require that level of sniffing ability in his world of sofa surfing, your dog  still has that DNA hardwired into him.

If his nose is rough, dry or even crusty, he won't be able to sniff the air and snag all the info nature is telling him to retrieve. This lack of info wears your dog down over time. Like us forgetting our cell phone on a long drive.

HOW BOXER NOSE BUTTER® HELPS YOUR DOG'S NOSE BE HEALTHY

NOSE BUTTER is a rich moisturizer that quickly melts into your dog’s nose in layers to keep the good stuff coming.  First, the lighter oils soak in (like almond oil), then the heavier oils are absorbed (ones like castor oil) and last, the rich, yummy butters brings up the rear for maximum moisture and to act as a protective barrier (while still being light enough to let the skin of the nose breathe).

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.
