Chinese Shar-Pei Nose Butter® All Natural Moisturizer For Your Shar-Pei's Rough, Dry Nose
The Chinese Shar-Pei, an ancient and unique breed, is thought to have originated in the area around the small village of Tai Li in Kwangtung Province, and has existed for centuries in the southern provinces of China, apparently since the Han Dynasty (c. 200 B.C.). Statues bearing a strong resemblance to the Shar-Pei have been discovered and dated to this period. More recently, a Chinese manuscript of the 13th century has been translated; it refers to a wrinkled dog with characteristics much like those of the Shar-Pei. –From the CSPCA
Your Shar-Pei's Dry Nose
First a quick Chinese Shar-Pei history lesson. In the late 1970s/early 1980s the Shar-Pei was the rarest dog on earth and was thiiiis close to extinction. Thanks to a passionate band of breed supporters the Chinese Shar-Pei was saved from disappearing forever.
Of course, this means the genetic pool wasn't a pool or a pond…it was a puddle. This small DNA variety led to a variety of issues that the dedicated Chinese Shar-Pei community has worked to eliminate.
A chronic dry nose may be a symptom of a slightly depressed immune system. If the nose has an extreme level of dryness or layers of crust your Chinese Shar-Pei may have Nasal Hyperkeratosis. More on that condition in Tabs below. The good news is any level of dry nose issue can be easily treated and a healthy balance maintained with routine Nose Butter® usage as a crusty dog nose remedy.
Krinkle Dog and Me 80s Style
A thousand years ago, the late 1980s, I shared my life with a few Shar-Pei. Yep, that's me with Krinkle Dog. I was working those 80s leg warmers in the Dallas summer. Krinkle Dog was a sweet loving dog and I still miss him.
