GERMAN SHORTHAIRED POINTER NOSE BUTTER



german shorthaired pointer

German Shorthaired & Wire-Haired Pointer Nose Butter® Moisturizes your GSP/GWPs Dry Nose

The German Shorthaired and Wirehaired Pointers are outstanding family dogs, one of the best of the best of hunting dogs and of course, a great friend. The GSP and GWP adore being with their family every minute of the day whether hunting, exploring the field or sleeping on the sofa. 

A dry, crusty or cracked nose is uncomfortable for your GSP, plus it interferes with their scenting ability! Nose Butter provides layers of moisturizing goodness to hydrate your dog’s nose FAST. While not as common as among the flat-faced breeds, occasionally German Shorthair Pointers have an extremely dry nose with an overgrowth of tissue covering it, called Nasal Hyperkeratosis. 

Your German Shorthair Pointer's Superpower Is Sniffing

Your GSP/GWP’s sense of smell is his SUPERPOWER. In addition to his skills at both finding and bring birds back to his people, the GSP has an acute sense of smell, even among the super noses with the dog world. Centuries of breeding has instilled this super sniffing ability into your German Shorthair’s DNA. Even if your dog never even SEES a field his entire life, he still has the scenting ability of a top field trial winner. Naturally!

If your dog’s nose is rough, dry or crusty, he cannot get all the good smells he knows he needs. A healthy, moist dog nose is like scent grabbing flypaper. Scents float by and the dog nose moisture pulls them in for your dog to process. Oh yeah, it is an amazing process.

NASAL HYPERKERATPSIS YOUR DOG'S EXTREMELY DRY NOSE

 NASAL HYPERKERATOSIS

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 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. And the good news is Nose Butter® works on it!

 

Nasodigital or Nasal Hyperkeratosis is an idiopathic condition, which means unknown cause ¯\(°_o)/¯ that causes excessive formulation of dry 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 need to feel secure and confident. A healthy nose snags good smells that float by and provides 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.

 

You know you feel when have NO SERVICE as you drive in an unfamiliar area? Probably frustrated, anxious and maybe terrified. Your dog experiences those same emotions when they can't get the info they need to make good dog decisions.
