maltese dog has dry noseMaltese Nose Butter Soothes and Moisturizes Your Little Dog's Rough, Dry, Parched Nose

The Maltese is a delightful, lovely dog. The Maltese has earned its rightful place as one of the top winning show dogs AND as a beloved companion dog. Good looks, great personality, and the perfect size to sit beside you on the sofa. Though we DO hope they have a silk pillow upon which to recline.

Your Maltese's Dry Nose

Like many of the other toy dogs, many Maltese have a bit of a dry nose. If your Maltese has an extremely dry nose with crusty tissue, they may have a condition called Nasal Hyperkeratosis. While there is no cure for Nasal Hyperkeratosis, the good news is Nose Butter will help get your dog's nose back into healthy condition and regular usage then maintains it.

Little Noses Need Moisturizing, Too!

How to Best Apply Nose Butter

The Nose Butter Basics

#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 holding them too tightly - 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)

Applying Nose Butter isn't rocket science...BUT

Until you've tried to hold an uncooperative, frightened8-pound dog with the strength and flexibility of a Cirque de Soleil acrobat, Piranha teeth, and an eardrum rupturing scream and dab something on their nose, you haven't experienced true frustration.

Our littles know they are small and put on a big tough front. But they are well aware of their small size and how easily they can be injured.

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).

If your little dog is also flat-faced, they may fight and struggle to protect their already hindered ability to breathe.

Tossing out some additional tips!

Gently wrap your dog in a blanket or towel to control their legs. Then apply.

Complete opposite is to let them stand and dab it on. Like shoeing a tiny horse, they can keep their flight or fight instincts intact.

Stay relaxed and positive and be very generous with treats and your dog will soon enjoy, or at least tolerate, Nose Butter time.

• Apply 2-3x a day (do the best you can, 2-3x a day is a good goal)
• After 2-3 days of using Nose Butter multiple times daily, gently rub the nose with some tissue and see if any of the crust easily crumbles off
• If it does not EASILY 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 temptation to pick. We get it, you just want it gone. Stay strong!

The crusty stuff is skin tissue and hurts your dog if you pick it off, just like us pulling a scab off a skinned knee too soon. OUCH!

We babble on about distracting your dog to allow easy application of their Nose Butter. The thing works!

Remember, warm Nose Butter up a bit so it is absorbed quickly! #1

• 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.

The Bad News is there is no actual CURE for Nasal Hyperkeratosis, it is a condition.

A Medical Condition is a health impairment resulting from a disease or injury or of idiopathic origins. Some condions can be cured, the majority can be managed or controlled.

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.

When our hands are really cracked and dry we can use 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.

Which is Best? Tin or Tube?

• Tubes allow for no-mess application.
• Tins offer hands-on application

The .15 oz lip-balm size tube of Nose Butter® is the perfect size for small noses, travel or to try out. It is .63" across, so a bit over ½ inch.

The .50 oz tube is .87" across, so over ¾ but not an inch.

What Size Should I Get?

Nose Butter is available in five sizes of tins and three tube sizes. Why so many? Dogs come in all sizes from Chinese Cresteds to Tibetan Mastiffs, so choose accordingly.

If you only have one small dog decide if you prefer the tin or tube and go from there.

If you have several small dogs who need Nose Butter, consider the 3 pack of lip-balm sized ones or at least a -ounce tin.

Why So Many Dog Breed Labels?

Nose Butter® is the exact same product no matter the label. The dog breed labels celebrate canine diversity and our dog geekness.

Little Boo

Is a cavalier King Charles Sspaniel. He had that ugly crust on his nose and after using the Boo balm it fell off. The products are gentle and effective. Boo is a happy dog and now we can be a happy family. Thanks a lot!!

Vizsla Nose Butter

I thought my older Vizsla was just supposed to have an old crusty nose. This treatment has been easy to apply, Louie dog doesn't mind it at all, and his nose dryness is disappearing. He still had a young nose under there. Really glad I found this product.

Works Fast!

I applied it 1-2 times a day for just a few days and my dog's nose it nearly all better. He does lick it off as soon as I put it on him so now I put it on and then give him wet food right away and it stays on. Excellent product!
