NEWFOUNDLAND DOG NOSE BUTTER FOR YOUR NEWFIE'S DRY NOSE
Newfoundlands are famous for jumping out of helicopters to save drowning children, dragging damaged boats to shore and being an all-around lifesaver. Save your Newfoundland dog’s dry nose with NOSE BUTTER®!
Many Newfie's have a bit of a dry nose, maybe a bit of crustiness OR the dryness may be more extreme with flaking layers or chunks of dry, crusty nose tissue. Don't worry! NEWFOUNDLAND NOSE BUTTER® was created for all ranges of dog nose dryness.
WHY A HEALTHY, HAPPY NEWFIE NOSE IS A BIG DEAL TO THEM
The Newfoundland was bred for centuries to save people from perilous situations. They do not hesitate to dive into frigid water or rough seas to save someone. Their senses must all be firing on all cylinders for them to be confident enough to perform under pressure.
While your Newfie may not search out anything more than a cookie from behind the sofa, his DNA is hardwired to sniff and find those in peril. Your Newfie can step into the backyard, take one big sniff and know your neighbor burned the casserole (again), the kid down the road is splashing on way too much of dad’s aftershave for his big first date and that the UPS guy dreads delivering packages to your house as he is a wee bit intimidated by a Newfie sized greeter. All this with one sniff!
If your Newfie is unable to sniff and capture all those good smells it can be stressful for him. This feeling of powerlessness can lead to stress, frustration and an overall loss of confidence. Think of it as trying to get a cellphone connection in a scary neighborhood with the gas tank on Empty. Your Newfie knows he is missing out on all the info he is used to receiving. Plus, a dry, crusty nose is uncomfortable to live with and unattractive to look at!
NOSE BUTTER® FOR HEALTHY, MOIST NEWFIE NOSES
NOSE BUTTER is a rich moisturizer that quickly melts into your dog’s nose in layers to keep the good stuff coming. First, the lighter oils soak in (like almond oil), then the heavier oils are absorbed (ones like castor oil) and last, the rich, yummy butters brings up the rear for maximum moisture and to act as a protective barrier (while still being light enough to let the skin of the nose breathe).
After NOSE BUTTER® does its magic your Newfie's moist, healthy nose will grab all the scents and smells, giving him the info he craves. Mentally, emotionally and physically, your Newfie feels better with a nose that's in proper shape.
NEWFOUNDLAND NOSE BUTTER® OPTIONS
NEWFOUNDLAND NOSE BUTTER® is available in several sizes of tins and tubes with your choice of labels. Choose from: Classic Black or Landseer labels. Plus, you have Lightly Scented and Unscented options. It's almost like having a custom made Newfie NOSE BUTTER®!
ASIDE: The big guy in the snow above is my Deuce, he was the best buddy I could have ever asked for and we still miss his gentle guardian energy.

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.
