    Default Dry nose: What should a healthy nose look like?

    Fezzik's nose is very dry and scaly on the top near his snout. I usually put coconut oil on it in the mornings. I am wondering if I should apply it more often or if he is reacting to the coconut oil. I have been using vaseline this week to try and see if there is a change.

    Could you post pictures of your dog's nose so I can compare? I will try to snap a pic myself but he usually mouths the phone if I get too close.

    I don't have a photo but Ruthie's nose is always crusty. I have tried putting everything on it but she just licks it all off, so she just has a crusty, dry nose.
    Brutus has a wet nose that never gets crusty.

    I do know there is a product called Snout Soother that might work better than coconut oil or vaseline!

    -20160303_133255-jpgI would consider Goob's nose healthy but maybe after I see some other pictures, I'll change my mind

    The front of his nose looks like that, but the top is cracked and dry. I'll try to take pictures when I get home tonight. I spend at least twice as long grooming my dog than I do myself, but he's worth it.

    Lambeau and Banks are/were always wet.... but Nitschke and Cheli were/are dry --- I use mushers secret on their nose and it has worked well. Sometimes you have to use a warm cloth to remove the dry/flake and then add the ointment

    I use Burts Bees for dogs on their noses. Frankies is perfect but sometimes Brutus' gets dry. I will try to take a pic of the product when I get home.

    I had a small can of Tattoo Goo. It is all natural and it works great on dry noses. I don't have to use it very often!

    Aww what a cute face. Mine is definitely drier on the top. I'll have to try something else than what I have been doing on his nose.
