I did this every couple of days, until it got to the point where once a week was enough.

    She never had issues w/her paws, but I guess you could try it there. I'm sure he would lick it off though… Lol
    The only problem I see with using AQUAFOR is that there is a Warning Label on the back of the tube, indicating it should not be
    ingested. My fear is that Maximus would lick it off his nose and ingest it. I think I will stick with the Vitamin-E for now and see
    what happens until Maximus sees the Dermatologist in October.

    Have you tried using the coconut oil? That may be a batter alternative...

    We have a thread on here, I will try to find… coconut oil is great for the skin, and you can also consume it for healthy benefits. Some dogs are allergic to it, but many members here use it with great success.

    Maximus' nose continues to crumble away due to his Hyperkeratosis. I have tried salves, ointments, Vaseline, and Vitamin E. Nothing seems to be preventing his nose from cracking and crumbling away. It's horrible. I'm going to have to email
    my Dermatologist about this. Maximus doesn't see him until October.

    Try the Aquaphor... I have used it fir many years without issue. The amount you use is so small it should not cause any issues.

    Here is a sample of one treatment a friend used a couple weeks ago... Before/after

    How long did it take using the Aquafor before the nose healed and regenerated ?

    We use Bag Balm of Bodies nose. It works really well! Normally, I put it on and the following day when cleaning his face, all the thick, dry, cracked parts fall off, revealing a smooth beautiful nose!! But have to keep it up every few days....we tried the snout smoother also with really no results....

    As far as the paws, Bodie gets the long hairs/calluses on his front paws too. I don't do anything for them, they eventually wear down/off just by normal walking...
    But I do swear by the Bag Balm, it's safe to ingest also, cuz like your Maximus, Bodie licks at it too, but our vet has said it's perfectly fine to use!

    UPDATE:: The Aquafor seems to be working for Max's Nose. That's a good sign. His Hyperkeratosis of his paws requires a lot more attention - the 'hairs' have to be cut with scissors, and can only be cut when those 'hairs' are wet. So, Max has to soak in
    a tub filled with Dawn Dish Detergent so that the Grease that is all throughout those 'hairs' gets removed so that the hairs can be cut with sharp scissors. It is a very painstaking procedure, but it has to be done or Max's walk and gait will be thrown off
    balance, which will affect his knees and his hips (and he already has ACL problems in both knees).
