His nose wasn't bleeding though, plus there was a smoother 'nose' under all the flakes. But we knew his was dead skin considering he wasn't very well looked after before we got him.

    I was just going to say dead skin and as long as it doesn't look "open", raw, red, or bleeding, it is probably nothing to worry about. Weird though huh? lol

    Old Bulldogs have always more or less dry noses, same reason old people get wrinkles. Some Bulldogs get a „old“ nose, that means a dry nose, very early. (Vets call it a early cornification.) My Kosmo´s nose started to dry out as he was just 1 year old. His father had had this same fault. It is a genetic cause. His mother Frieda - in may we will celebrate her 7th birthdy , has still a perfect young, soft and wet nose; Kosmo had bad luck with his father´s nose. He (and I) have to live with it. I put once a week a high quality oil on it. The best is a oil which contains aloe vera too. The oil prevents cracks, because it keeps the old skinpieces soft.

    My Alma´s nose startet to dry out as she was 11 years old, and my Wilma´s nose as she was 6 years old. There are great differences.
