    Default Dry nose....

    Hey guys weather is pretty dry by me and I was wondering what do you guys use to moisturize your bully's nose???? I have mushers paw wax, could I use that for her nose? Chapstick or Vaseline?

    I use Aquaphor Healing Ointment, it works really well, when their nose is really dry I apply it twice a day and within about 3 days it is nice and moist again

    I also just got this product Name:  100_1027.jpg

    Here, Aquaphor is found at the drug store with the baby products. Works very well and is no where near the price of the products marketed for dogs.

    Hello,

    There are lots of products that work well on a dry nose. You KNOW your bulldog has a tongue that can lick their nose...right? So what ever you use needs to be "edible" ?

    Do you know what the USDA and F&D has to say about "petrolatum" products?
    http://1.usa.gov/11jjQIK

    Read about the myths and facts about 100% "petrolatum" product and use?
    http://bit.ly/10i52eh


    Using a medicated chapstick/lip balm product or a less than 100% petrolatum product is probably not safe ?

    My opinions..

    I look forward to yours..



    Good Day~

    Hi,

    After doing more research, I found someone who suggested "Abonne" ? While I am not a user and only quickly looked at the product line, I didn't see anything that looked safe to use on the nose, which cuz of the the long tongue could easily be licked off and ingested?


    This is where I looked for products: Arbonne


    This is a warning site about the ingredients"

    maybe the snout stick is better?

    Good Day~

    @ABEBD thanks for the input. I'm gonna research the snout stick and see what I find. I didn't think letting her lick Vaseline could be good.

    Hello,

    Which is the better of two choices: Vaseline which is 100% petrolan ( and which the USDA/FDA say is safe for ingestion) or the snoutstick (which has some funky ingredients also? ; Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil )

    The shea butter is edible which used in cooking. Almond oil seems safe also. And Jojoba seed oil is also safe.

    So...which is cheaper?

    Good Day~

    I tried vaseline when Mack's allergies were out of control, he licked it right off. But I was thinking about trying coconut oil since I have it on hand for his skin anyways and its edible

    I use Nose Butter for dogs. The stuff is awesome, and it is available on Etsy. Search for the name, or fine PiperStoneArtwork.
