Does your dog’s nose continually become rough before cracking? If so, it’s a possibility that your dog has hyperkeratosis, a disorder that can impact a dog’s nose and also their paw pads. Rough to the touch, this disorder can also cause your dog a lot of discomfort. Some dogs are born with it, while others develop it with age; it’s not uncommon for older dogs to suddenly develop hyperkeratosis. Think of your own feet when they have calluses, some calluses can even become very painful, and they never clear up if they are simply ignored. The same goes for dry dog noses, which thicken until they crack, and without proper nourishing treatment bigger problems will result. Such as, a dog’s nose breaking off and bleeding, leaving open wounds, which can easily become infected. Thankfully, even though canine hyperkeratosis is toted as a life-long disorder, there is a way to treat the symptoms and allow your dog to live a long life with a moist nose and smooth paw pads.
The Troubles Hyperkeratosis Can Cause
We understand how much suffering pet owners go through as they try to diagnose and then treat hyperkeratosis. Once identified, many veterinarians remain unable to provide any real relief to your dog, who is potentially in a lot of pain. Many dogs experience the majority of lesions on the top ridge of their nose; if these sores become large enough, some vets will routinely cut them off each time the chunks of skin build back up. Some admit to visiting the vet two times a week to have this procedure replicated; not only is this expensive, but it’s not doing anything to improve your dog’s nose health, it’s simply an aesthetic procedure. Dogs that suffer from hyperkeratosis of their paw pads can experience an equal amount of pain. In fact, if the lesions on their paws become bad enough, dogs will develop a limp.
Yet if you think about in simple terms, it seems the solution is not to cut away the dry and damaged skin, but to instead nourish and moisturize this cracked, peeling, and sensitive skin back to life. Using a special blend of all-natural ingredients, Snout Soother is created to do just that. We are proud to help dogs everywhere that suffer from hyperkeratosis, along with other nose-drying allergens and disorders.
Chase the boxer knows what it is like to be afflicted by hyperkeratosis, in fact his entire family felt sympathy pains when they looked at Chase’s dry, cracking nose. When his nasal hyperkeratosis just wouldn’t clear up, they knew something had to be done. Thankfully, Cheyenne found her way to Snout Soother, and today Chase is looking and feeling his very best.
We recently received this testimonial from Chase and his family:
Chase is our third boxer and we have never experienced one with such a dry nose before! His poor nose was cracking so badly that fluff from blankets were catching on it and getting stuck. I came across the Snout Soother on Instagram and kept looking at all the before and after photos and knew I had to try it. I especially loved that it is all organic and natural. Ordered it online and it was delivered to my home within the same week. Applied it 2-3 times a day and couldn’t believe how quickly we saw results. On about day 2-3 little pieces were flaking off of the dry nose. By day five his nose was back to normal!! So happy!!! Thank you!!
