    Default My bulldog's nose is falling off ???

    Ok, so wanting to put some of all this great advice to work ....I ordered snout soother for not my bully but my weim who has a crack in her nose that's so deep it bleeds every now and again.

    Got it on Saturday and started to use it on both the weim and the bully (didn't want him to feel left out). Weim's nose is noticeably less dry, but the weirdest thing is the bulldog's nose is flaking off in little (and not so little) black flakes.-imageuploadedbytapatalk1328574518-413565-jpg

    So what's a healthy nose on a bully? Cause I'm thinking it's not his rough nose, as 5 years of callous and crust is just disintegrating with the magic snout soother.... I'm both fascinated and concerned as I watch his nose flake off.

    I'm thinking at this rate his new nose will be in place in about a week.

    Could someone send me a pic of a normal bulldog nose? As I've mistaken for a few years.

    I know Jake's nose gets very dry and flaky if I don't keep snout soother on it. I'm sorry..I have no idea about chunks coming off. Hold on..I'm sure someone will come along. Let's try @desertskybulldogs

    How old is Schultz?

    I'm not sure there is a 'normal' bully nose. Nitschke's nose was always dry and sometimes flaked, even with putting mushers secret on it once a week. Banks' nose is always nice and moist without any ointments.

    [QUOTE=2BullyMama;148838]How old is Schultz?


    Schultz is 5 ...and his nose, as far as I can remember has always been rough but not dry...
    I'm simply fascinated that he has a whole other nose under the one I could see...

    Sounds like a trip the vet is warranted now. Could be allergies, he could be sick and you not know it besides his nose flaking off, it could be a number of things from the searches I just did. If it was my bully, I'd be calling the vet. Please keep us posted, this seems very unusual to me. Poor thing.

    @Saalwi...when we first got Bre her nose was so deeply cracked and dry (I even posted about it!). On a recomendation from @JAKEISGREAT I ordered some Snout Soother. As I started using it big chunks of her dry nose were coming off (basically dead skin). After a week and a half her nose was smooth and no more pieces coming off. I would say that as long as your bullies nose isn't starting to bleed or get raw you are in the clear as it is probably just the old dead skin coming off.

    I agree .. it's the old dry flaky skin coming off. I mean, the cracked dry skin is just that .. dead skin. So it's gonna come off because it's dead and no moisturiser on this planet is going to bring it back to life!!

    I do have some snout soother but prefer to use Aquaphor ... just as good and less money ....plus I can use it on my hands too in this cold weather!!

    That's exactly what it seems like, but I will call his vet today and let her know about it....just wiping his face like normal after breakfast more pieces of black nose came off (easily I'm not scrubbing)....
    There's no blood and it doesn't bother him at all, so I guess the crusty, callous I thought was his nose is shedding and underneath is what's gonna be his "real" nose.

    Thanks everyone
