Bulldog Nose Butter® Individually Handcrafted Moisturizer for Your English Bulldog's Dry Nose
Your Bulldog's Dry Nose
Something about Bulldogs tickles the human spirit and makes us smile. Is it that face? Their rambunctious playfulness? How many times have you watched that video of the Bulldog skateboarding? Yeah, me too. Bulldogs are just fun dogs! Fun to live with and fun to watch!
Of course, you want your Bulldog to look and feel their best. To breathe freely and no more answering, "It's a Bulldog thing" when people ask what's wrong with your dog's nose. Not only does a dry nose affect your dog's looks, but it can also cause them to be anxious.
Bulldogs & Nasal Hyperkeratosis
Along with that bullylicious face comes a predisposition toward dry noses. Plus, Bulldogs often have an extreme version of dryness called Nasal Hyperkeratosis (pictured below). Nasal hyperkeratosis is a condition in which skin tissue grows in crusty layers, often covering the dog's nose. More on Nasal Hyperkeratosis in tabs and videos below. The good news is Nose Butter® works for all types of Bulldog dry nose issues, including Nasal Hyperkeratosis.
Nose Butter Moisturizes Your Dog's Dry, Chapped Nose
Does Your Dog Have a Rough, Dry Nose?
Dry dog noses can be just a tiny bit dry to the extremely dry nasal hyperkeratosis.
Your dog's dry nose can be caused lack of humidity, some illnesses, even medications or stress. Yes, breed or breed type can also be a major cause. Bully and Flat-faced dog breeds are the most susceptical.
The extreme dry nose, Nasal Hyperkeratosis, is an idiopathic condition (medical speak no idea why) that causes nose tissue to cover the nose in layers of scabby, skin crust.
The Good News is Nose Butter® works on ALL levels of dog nose dryness from a tiny bit to extreme cases of Nasal Hyperkeratosis. We've got your dog's nose covered, read on and learn the whys and how-tos.
Nasal Hyperkeratosis & Dog Breeds
While any dog can have Nasal Hyperkeratosis, our research shows a strong correlation between dog breed or breed type and a predisposition to Nasal Hyperkeratosis. There may also be an immune system factor.
Dogs with extreme body types seem to be the most affected.
• Extremely flat-faced • Extremely bully-bodied • Extremely loose jowls • Extreme amount of facial folds • Extremely large • Extremely small

#1 Tip - For quicker absorption warm Nose Butter prior to using • To warm; stick in your pocket, bra, or scoop some out & warm in palm (see image) • Open the tin or tube • Gently control your dog's face (side of face or under their chin) • Avoid head-locks - that's a trigger for many dogs • Tag Team - have someone hold & you apply • (Tin) Scoop a bit out appropriate to the size of your dog’s nose • Dab it on their nose • Rub it in a bit, you do not have to rub it in completely as it melts quickly, especially if warm • Distract to keep them from licking or rubbing it off • Repeat 2-3x a day for 1-3 days or until nose is back in shape • Then use as needed for maintenance (usually 1-2x a week)
• Apply 2-3x a day (do the best you can, 2-3x a day is the goal) • After 2-3 days of multiple daily applications, gently rub the nose with tissue and see if it easily crumbles off • If it does NOT crumble right off (it will look like black, greasy dirt), keep applying Nose Butter 2-3x a day until it easily, without picking, comes off • Resist the urge to pick as tempting as it may be, it hurts and will make the process harder
The crusty stuff is actually skin and hurts your dog if you pick it off, just like us pulling a scab off a skinned knee too soon.
• Give a cookie or treat before, during and after application • Cuddles, pets, repeat as needed • Feed their dinner (with extra yummies) • Play your dog's fave game • Throw a ball • Go for a walk • Pet them, lavish praise on them for their overall good dog-ness • TIP! Not only does something positive (like cookies) take their mind off having something done to them, they soon equate Nose Butter with treats.
Ouch! That hurt! It's not that your dog loathes Nose Butter (we hope not), they probably DO dislike being held tightly.
Being held in a WWE head-lock is a huge trigger for most dogs. If possible, allow them to stand while you apply Nose Butter and be quick
Additionally, flat-faced dogs will fight and struggle to protect their already hindered ability to breathe.
Toy breeds know they are small and will often put up an unbelievable tussle to get away when they feel over-powered.
Dogs are often triggered by being held tightly. This may come from when they were puppies. Puppy play involves a lot of wrestling and play-fight. It's not fun for dogs (or us) to have siblings pile on, hold us down and make us feel helpless. (I'm looking at my three sisters).
Stay relaxed and positive and be very generous with treats and your dog will soon enjoy, or tolerate, Nose Butter time.
The Bad News is there is no CURE for Nasal Hyperkeratosis, it is a condition and usually life-long.
If you stop using Nose Butter, the dryness and crust will probably come back.
The Good News is maintenance usage of Nose Butter keeps the Nasal Hyperkeratosis under control.
Nose Butter can help heal the dry nose, but doesn't cure the condition. Yes, it's semantics, but it helps make it clear.
When our hands are really cracked and dry we apply lotion to get them in shape, but we can't slather lotion on our hands once and be moisturized for life.
Like cutting your dog's toenails...Nose Butter is part of their health care regimen.
The nose butter has really helped our bulldog’s dry, cracked nose. My only suggestion would be to put it it a tube or other container. The one it comes in is a little hard to open.
Best Nose Butter
I've tried several brands but The Blissful Dog has the best nose butter for my bulldogs. I have 2 English Bulldogs and 1 French Bulldog and they all use the nose butter. It has made a complete difference. I have been using your product for years now and it keeps their noses healthy and soft.
Better than coconut oil!
Amazing stuff! Bitsy loves her new nose and it starts working on day 1!
That's what we LOVE to hear! Day 1 is our goal for Nose Butter to begin to repair Thank you so much for letting us know! Blissfully, Kathy
Worked in 3 days!!!
I have a 170 lb Bullmastiff who has multiple skin problems. I have tried everything on his nose with very little results. This worked in 3 days (6 applications). Each application I could see improvement and crusty skin was flaking off. By the 6 application his nose was perfect. I was so impressed I ordered more products for his other skin irritations.
Thank you, thank you for letting us know. We're thrilled our products worked so well! And those pictures absolutely made my day. As a little kid I remember my dad telling us how Bullmastiffs were the perfect dog. He would go on and on, but we never had one. I suppose there were not many in rural Mississippi in the early 1960s. -Kathy PS - My apologies for the delay in thank you. I just flat got behind...on almost everything.
My male English bulldog had really bad dry nose it would break and bleeding no more with nose butter

Only the best for Duchess
Our 8 year old bull dog had a crusty discolored nose. We wondered what to do since she was groomed and went to the vet regularly. We turned to products. This was the only product we felt met the description of what we wanted. Wow did it work! After two days we saw results. After a week Duchess has her old hydrated nose back.
Of course Duchess deserves the very best and more of it! I'm not sure her buddy in the picture agrees, that is some serious stink that dog is giving us all! We're so happy we could be here for you to help you keep Duchess look and feel like the royalty she is absolutely is. Thank you again! -Kathy
