All Natural Nose Butter® Revives Your French Bulldog's Parched Nose
French Bulldogs are little clowns, full of mischief and sass! In the last few years, Frenchies burst into the spotlight with a blast of popularity! Not surprising for those of us who have lived with these enchanting gremlins for years. When I got my first Frenchiein the early 1990s they were ranked in the 80s in AKC popularity and now they are the #2 Most Popular dog breed, after Labs, in AKC Registrations. With this popularity comes the responsibility for those of us who have had these unique dogs for decades to share the Frenchie care secrets. Actually, Nose Butter® was born out of a need to help my own French Bulldogs dry noses back in 2002
French Bulldog Dry Noses
Our research has led us to believe Frenchies have a slightly depressed immune system which results in the drier nose predisposition. It is systemic, which means it cannot be CURED, but Nose Butter can HEAL the actual dry nose. This is why you will need to continue to use Nose Butter for maintenance. (YES, I Bolded). Your Frenchie's nose may have a bit of dryness or covered in layers of crusty, barnacle-looking crud (like pics below). This extreme dryness may be a condition called Nasal Hyperkeratosis, a condition of unknown origins (more info in tabs below). The Good News is Nose Butter® will have your Frenchies nose back in shape in days! We have thousands of rave reviews attesting to that fact!
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.
Our Frenchie has a very dry nose and the nose butter keeps it from getting crispy. We will continue to purchase this product!
Love this Product. No crusty noses is in this house!!!
Looks like nobody is camera shy in your house either! What a lovely Frenchie and we're delighted our Nose Butter works so well for y'all. I'm equally impressed with how well your Frenchie has hit their mark and perfectly posed for the camera! Thank you! Kathy

This product is awesome and the only one I will use on my French Bulldog! The nose and paw butter really help. I also have 2 other ones that came in my combo pack that I haven’t got to use yet. The nose butter really helped with my frenchies dry nose and the paw butter really helped her stop licking her paws. This is an awesome product highly recommended!
Thank you, thank you for the review. As an FYI, you can use the Elbow BUtter on their paws if you wish, it will work great on them. Same for the Boo Boo Butter - use as needed. -Kathy
We love the nose butter, actually all the products are amazing! Wonderful for our Frenchies! Amazing results.
