Malamute Nose Butter

Does Your Alaskan Malamute Have a Rough, Dry Nose? Maybe Crusty

Nose Butter hydrates your Malamute's parched nose using all natural ingredients

Often mistaken for a big Husky, the Malamute or Alaskan Malamute (their official AKC name), is their own distinct breed with a unique history. 

MALAMUTE FACTOID: The Malamute was named after the native Innuit tribe called Malemutes, who settled along the shores of Kotzebue Sound in the upper-western part of Alaska.

The Alaskan Malamute, like their Husky cousin, also has a tendency toward a dry or crusty nose. The butters and oils in NOSE BUTTER® act in a synergistic manner, infusing your Malamute’s nose with layer after layer of rich moisturizers. Occasionally Malamutes do have Nasal Hyperkeratosisan extremely dry nose condition, where skin grows uncontrollably that covers the entire nose. 

Why A Healthy Nose Is A Big Deal For Your Malamute

A dry or crusty nose prevents your Mal from sniffing out the info he knows is floating in the air around him. Nature tells him to grab the scents and a dry nose does not capture the scent particles properly. This causes stress, frustration, and possibly a feeling of overall unease for your dog. Like we feel when we cannot get a cell phone signal in a sketchy neighborhood with the gas needle on E.

Your Malamute looks better, feels better and is even more confident when his nose is working properly on all levels.

Alaskan Malamute Noses Are Built For Cold

Dogs have highly developed nasal turbinates, an elaborate set of bone and soft-tissue structure, that allow for great to be exchanged between the small arteries and veins inside the nose.

This complex turbinate structure conserves water in cold, arid environments.This is what has allowed dogs to follow man info harsh, cold parts pf the world, when other mammals, who lacked this structure, to do so.

How To Best Use Nose Butter®

Apply nose butter

HOW TO APPLY NOSE BUTTER

  • For ease of application and faster absorption put tin or tube in your pocket for a few minutes to warm it
  • TIN Scoop a bit out with finger or spoon and warm in your palm before application for faster absorption
  • DAB on dog's nose
  • DISTRACT to keep them from licking it off (give treat, feed dinner, go for walk)
  • REPEAT 2-3x daily for 1-3 days or until there is improvement
  • Use as needed for maintenance (usually 1-2x a week)
  • Products have no active ingredients and will not harm your dog if they lick some off. But we do want the product to get it's work done, so see distract tips
  • Complete tips, hints & directions brochure is included with every order

FYI: Our balms have a very thick, stiff consistency, because your dog's nose is very thick skin tissue. If it were a fluffy cream, it would not work. 

 

Distraction Tips - Look Squirrel!

  • Like pulling off a bandaid - Apply FAST
  • Give treats before, during and after application, if needed
  • Peanut butter on a wooden spoon is a great trick
  • Feed their dinner after application
  • Play your dog's fave game
  • Throw a ball or go for a walk
  • Pets and cuddles are always good

Keeping Expectations Real

Every so often a customer tells us their dog doesn’t “like” the Nose Butter, etc. Some dogs just do not like being controlled, messed with, having their faces touched or anything done to them. We get it! Sometimes our dogs do NOT want to be messed with, restrained or have their faces touched. They will flip, fight, twist and turn and some of the dogs have the audacity to wipe the product off on the sofa on their owner's leg!

 

Your dog may not “like” having Nose Butter applied. They may not like going to the vet or getting their toenails trimmed. Just like most of us don't like going to the dentist, but we go. Sometimes we have to do something for our dog's well-being…cutting toenails, giving meds, cleaning ears, going to the vet, or applying Nose Butter, etc. If your dog  struggles, make the process FASTER and reward lavishly. This may be one of those situations in which you have to be firm with your dog, again, for the greater good. 

 

Reviews

 

As you have read (over and over) Nose Butter® is the same recipe, the breed labels are just for fun. Of course, some dog breeds are more unusual than others and some are beloved by almost everybody. As that kid who was inevitably picked last for every sports team, I will NOT say a dog breed is more popular than another. That's just wrong.

 

Reviews for the Just A Nose label are also shown under the more unusual breeds, new breeds or new configurations of existing listings. That way you get to read reviews on every page of Nose Butter without have to go 2 or 3 clicks deep. Nobody wants to do all that extra clicking...ugh.

Nasal Hyperkeratosis Info - Extremely Dry Dog Noses

 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.

Great website

Nothing really prevents nasal hyperkeratosis, but Kathy's Nose Butter keeps it in check and under control. And what makes it even better, the can has a Malamute on it. Thank you Katy!
