My grandparents swear by bag balm "if a baby cow can suckle with it then..." so I used it on Loki's nose last night, I have some for my dry hands, 2 small applications later and his nose looks amazing! So much cheaper then snout soother and he doesn't try and lip or wipe it off. Not mention that we can use it too :)

Re: bag balm

Thank you for the tip, I'd got some for abrasions on my leg.

Didn't think about using on Cami's crusty, dry nose >Duh<

Re: bag balm

Coconut oil also works very well :) I add a little to their food too :)

Re: bag balm

Good tip, haven't heard of it, but will check it out. Where can you buy it? Bulldozer and Blossom haven't had a dry nose yet, but good to have things on hand. I try and keep a first aid, and in case kit handy for when things come up, and if we can use it on ourselves as well, why not? We share all of our people supplements and ointments and creams etc with our babies, so why not share something that they use? Lol. I'm so glad it's not actually bag balm. Lol. :yikes:

Re: bag balm

Love bag balm, got it as soon as we got Brock, though we now use coconut oil on his nose since it absorbs faster, less time for him to rub or lick it all off lol. But it still works well on his paws though it can be a little greasy if you put too much on or don't take the time to rub it in.

You can pick up a tin of it at places like Walgreens, I still have the one I bought a year ago but I want to say it was maybe like $8.

Re: bag balm

great stuff, but for some reason the odor gets to me... it is very faint, but bothers me.

Re: bag balm

Thanks for the tip. Daisy's nose isn't an issue yet but her paws are really dry already & she's only 9 months old. I'll get some & try it on her pads for sure.

Re: bag balm

I have been using bag balm for a while on Ace. It also works well on small abrasions and red irritations on the belly and scrotum

Re: bag balm

Vikinggirl-you can usually get Bag Balm at a feed store-all the feed stores I go to have it-perhaps yours do, also.
