JAPANESE CHIN NOSE BUTTER DRY NOSE TREATMENT
WHAT CAUSES MY JAPANESE CHIN TO HAVE A DRY NOSE?
Many Japanese Chin struggle with dry noses, partially due to the extremely flat faces and also to their diminutive size. If your beloved Chin’s nose is a bit dry or dull, it may be a simple dry nose and NOSE BUTTER® will moisturize and soothe their nose.
But, if there are layers of crust or it looks like crusty stuff is literally growing on top of the nose, it may be a common canine condition called Nasal Hyperkeratosis. The Japanese Chin has two of the triggers – toy dog size and that adorable flat face. If your Japanese Chin’s nose has layers of crusty or resembles an oyster shell, read the info in the toggle bar – click on the + below.
Is the dryness on your dog’s nose MORE than just some dry skin? Are there layers of rough tissue that look like barnacles or bark? Your dog may have Nasal Hyperkeratosis.
Nasal hyperkeratosis is an idiopathic condition (¯\(°_o)/¯ medical-speak for they don’t have a clue where it comes from) that causes your dog to create a protein or keratin overgrowth (keratin-more jargon, it just means protein tissue). It is tissue, so it may bleed if you try to pick it off (don’t pick, dogs hate that).
You have not done anything wrong, this is not caused from bad genetics, your dog’s food or water or his love for rooting in the dirt. While it IS a condition, nasal hyperkeratosis can be easily gotten under control and kept under control.
Flat-faced breeds, Bulldog types, toy breeds, the mastiff family and anything with a chunky body type or extreme characteristics seem to have a genetic predisposition toward this condition.
Dry climates, dry heating or a/c and some physical conditions or medications may also aggravate the dryness.
The term condition means this is a chronic issue that can be HEALED but not CURED. The symptoms (the crust) can be gotten under control, and kept under control, but regular maintenance is required. Much as heart worm medicine has to be given or ears cleaned, your dog may require extra nose maintenance attention.
Personally, I feel a slightly depressed or compromised immune system is also one of the causes. Many of the breeds prone to this have extreme characteristics such as flat faces, chunky bodies, are really BIG or really small. It stands to reason that to get such an extreme body type and “look” something is compromised.
NOSE BUTTER® can keep your dog’s nose looking and feeling great with a minimum of expense and trouble. It makes me feel so good that our product has helped tens of thousands of dogs all over the world look and feel better. I’m honored you found us!
WHAT WILL NOSE BUTTER® DO FOR MY JAPANESE CHIN’S DRY NOSE?
NOSE BUTTER is a rich moisturizer made just for dogs using ingredients that quickly soak into your Chin’s nose in layers. The lighter oils, such as almond oil soak in fast, then the medium-bodied oils are absorbed, such as olive oil, then shea butter and cocoa seed butter melt in,adding a light barrier of protective goodness. But it is light enough for the nose skin to absorb the juicy smells your dog loves. While we totally believe in the healing benefits of the dash of essential oils we use in our Lightly Scented NOSE BUTTER®, we respect the desire for a Fragrance Free version.

JAPANESE CHIN HISTORY & FUN FACTS
From The Japanese Chin Club of America: The Japanese Chin is a fairly healthy breed with a typical life expectancy of 10-12 years; some live to be 15 years of age or more. The majority of problems seen in the Chin are common to toy dogs in general. Among the most common are luxating patellas (slipping kneecaps), cataracts, and early-onset heart murmurs. Reputable breeders attempt to breed from stock that are free of major health defects in hopes that their progeny will have a better chance at a healthy life.
Japanese Chin Bits: The Japanese Chin we know today probably originated in Ancient China and then made its way to Japan. These delightful little dogs were often given as very special tokens of affection or as part of trade or treaty negotiations.
In ancient times, Japanese Chins were often kept in suspended dog cages, much like a bird cage, hanging from the ceiling. They were fed only rice and saki to keep their size small. Strict laws governed the protection of this breed and death was punishment for many infractions against this prized dog.
In Japan, the name for all dogs is ini, but the Japanese Chin was regarded as as a being worthy of its own class (chin).
The Japanese Chin was first glimpsed by the Western world in 1853 when Commodore Matthew Perry sailed into what we know as Tokyo and introduced Japan to the rest of the world. The Japanese Chin caught the fancy of aristocrats and working class alike and many were imported into Britain and the United States.
President Franklin Pierce, Jefferson Davis, and Caroline Perry Belmont (the Admiral’s daughter) were amongst the first Americans to enjoy the Japanese Chin. They were called Japanese Spaniels in the USA until 1977, when the name was changed to Japanese Chin.
