Barking Wednesday - Dogs Dry Nose Care

Thanks for joining me for my Barking Wednesday post.  
Each week I post stuff about my favorite guy...Kingers and his friends.  
All kinds of stuff....products - homemade treat recipes - info I have learned over the years, etc.  Info I think is helpful in making sure that every dog lives a fantastic life.

Does your dog have dry itchy skin?  Try this home remedy to help relieve your dog's dry nose. Kingers always has a dry nose.  The vet has stated that it is Kingers. Ever since he was a puppy his nose has been dry. 

If your pup has a dry nose rest assure that it can be perfectly normal.  Hydration, sunburn, wind and body temperature can all affect the dryness of your dogs nose.
Kingers has always had a dry nose - which may be the result of his allergies.  They do believe that dogs with allergies tend to have dry noses.

One of the ways that I try to help to relieve the dryness is by washing Kingers nose with a gentle soap like Ivory. Once the nose is clean I apply a very light coat of Aquaphor. I apply a very light coat of Aquaphor to ensure that he does not lick it off his nose.
As you can see by his nose it is still dry.  I can not imagine how dry it would be if I did not add a moisturizer.

As always make sure to contact with your vet before doing any treatments on your dog.
