Dry Nose

Henry

I'm sure there is an official term for it, but do any of your pugs suffer from "dry nose"? Henry's nose gets very dry on the very tip and if it get dry enough it will actually flake off. Luna's nose is sorta the same way, but not as bad as Henry's.

Luckily, just a little bit of Vaseline for a few days, clears things right up.

Mack also suffers from dry nose during the cold months.  We use Nose Butter, which is sold by our rescue org, Mid Atlantic Pug Rescue!

Drools and licks,

All the time, even in the summer.  Anything we’ve tried has worked fairly well, but only when the pugs leave the stuff on there and don’t lick it off!  That is the biggest challenge.

Our vet said a little neosporin but I hate to use it because they lick it off!!

No dry nose here in dry air Colorado-go figure-you’d think with the thin air & altitude it would be a problem. Pug hugs from pastor sue & the Colorado 2

Nose Butter.  Only thing, Annie fights it and I don’t know why.

I have been lucky with my six but my first group of puggies my male use to get it real bad and the vet said to use vaseline and it worked

Yes!  Bennie gets it, too.  The first time I saw it, I was really worried because it seemed his nose was flaking off.  And yes, he fights vaseline and then tries to lick it off.  And then I’m concerned he’s making his dry nose worse. 

I’m going to look for nose butter.  The cute name alone makes me want to try it!

I don’t like Vaseline because it contains petroleum and I can’t think that is good for a dog to lick.

I think that it should be something that 1) keeps the nose moist, and 2) won’t hurt the pug when licked. I tried Vasoline with Ozzie but am going to switch to nose butter. The name sounds butter! Also, I’m going to try to be more diligent about keeping it on his nose. How about during Ozzie’s many naps? zzzz

Bugsy is my first pug ever with that problem. I use Aquaphor. I have heard of a product called “Snout Soother” that works well too.  Chubbs the Wampug uses it!

My old departed Abby had a very dry nose, and we used just a dab of vaseline.  Lily seems to have no problem with this but then again, she licks her nose all the time anyways smile

My Wheezy gets it all the time. I use Bert’s Bees Hand Salve or Bert’s Bees Lip Balm. Both work great on her nose and my skin too.

Dolly has it constantly.  If you pick at it for a bit, it will come off, no pink spots or blood or anything bad.  I think it’s just dried mucus (boogers,sorry). The only problem is it annoys her but doesn’t seem to hurt her.  I tried Neosporin but she licks it off.  She’s a licker 24/7 drives me nuts.  I hadn’t tried Vaseline I may just give it a try.

Hyper keratosis, aka dry skin. My groomer recently suggested using an anti fungal spray on your dog. Apply with a cotton ball. I haven’t tried it yet. My one Pug Ramses gets it pretty bad, at the moment he’s hardly got any at all.
