ENGLISH TOY SPANIEL NOSE BUTTER® MOISTURIZING BALM HYDRATES YOUR ETS' DRY NOSE
The English Toy Spaniel is a lovely little dog – jaunty, loving and a delight to live with (I know, I share my life with GIO, the black & tan pictured on the labels). Like his cousin, the Cavalier, the English Toy Spaniel often struggles with a rough, dry nose. NOSE BUTTER® will have the Royal Spaniel nose in regal shape in no time.
While many English Toy Spaniel's have dry nose issues, there is a more extreme dry dog nose condition, Nasal Hyperkeratosis, where the nose tissue grows aggressively and creates layers or chunks crust.
Rest assured, all of these canine dry nose problems can be easily treated and a healthy balance maintained with routine NOSE BUTTER® usage.
NOSE BUTTER® FOR A MORE CONFIDENT, RELAXED ENGLISH TOY SPANIEL
The regal English Toy Spaniel is a lap dog par excellence, (Gio literally sits behind me on my office chair all day-every day). They are gentle souls, calm and quiet, playful and attentive. A true hidden jewel of the dog world.
While your little ETS may never chase a bird in his life, he does have the genetics of spaniels in his DNA. He will still stick his little nose into the air to sniff the doggie info that floats his way.
If your dog’s nose is rough and dry, he can’t capture all the info carrying smells he wants and needs. A healthy, moist dog nose is like scent grabbing flypaper. Scents float by and the dog nose moisture traps the smells in a special nasal compartment for your dog to process.
By having all the info he knows is out there, your little ETS may even be a wee bit more confident and sure of himself. At the very least, a healthy, smooth nose will have him looking better and he will be able to breathe much more easily!
ENGLISH TOY SPANIEL TIDBITS
The English Toy Spaniel (also known as the King Charles Spaniel) is a delightful little spaniel.
They combine the loving demeanor of a spaniel with the smaller size of a toy dog (though they are not tiny) with a bit of nod to their aristocratic heritage.
The English Toy Spaniel were first seen in Europe during the 16th century. There are many similarities between the English Toy Spaniel and the Japanese Chin, so many believe their made their way from the Far East. (IMHO - I believe the Japanese Chin was crossed with small Spaniels to create the flatter face and bring the size down).
Since the time of Queen Mary I (1516–1558), the “Charlie” has been immortalized at the side of royalty in countless paintings. King Charles II of England (1630–1685) was passionate about the breed, many would say obsessed. The Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II have each enjoyed the affections of the English Toy.

THIS BEFORE & AFTER TESTIMONIAL HOLDS A DEAR SPOT IN MY HEART…
Jessica and I had fun emailing back and forth after she purchased NOSE BUTTER® for her newest member of the family. We laughed that Gio had a crush on Dinah and that our dogs were trying to text each other. We enjoyed the connection of having the same color of a rarely seen breed.
Then, just a few weeks after I received this wonderful review, Dinah’s mom contacted me to share that Dinah had passed away in her arms. My first thoughts were that it was not fair, it was too soon after she was rescued from the life of a puppy mill dog. I was sad and angry and my heart was broken for Jessica.
Then I realized Jessica had given Dinah the greatest gift of all. Not only were her last months on earth full of fun, frolicking on the beach and having photo shoots done, Dinah got to experience knowing that she was a very special, loved, unique being.
Dinah passed away knowing she was totally and completely loved by someone who chose her to adore. Her last breath was taken with the knowledge that she had been loved. And none of us could ask for any better.

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.
