Coconut Oil

Virgin Coconut oil also seems to help the nose issue. It is antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal as well. My 13 year old boxer has a very dry nose and the coconut oil seems to help so long as the other dogs do not lick it off. Hope this helps. (He doesn't like the application process, I usually have to straddle him and make it happen, he is not willing, yet he does act as though he gets relief from the treatment) I also feed him a spoonful a couple of times a week for his coat, and all around health.

I would suggest only using virgin Coconut oil on his nose. My dog had a dry nose and the coconut oil worked great. The chapstick & Vaseline have too many chemicals that are toxic for a dog!

Hi All:

my little minature pincher has developed severe dry nose. I have given her salmon oil, coconut oil, olive oil some buter. I give these to her with her raw diet andsome digestive enzyme. Have applied coconut oil, she just licks it off. Does anyone have any experience with this problem? I will have to bring her to the vet soon but do not want her to take any sort of harmful medication or topical product.
Thanks in advance!

Where can I purchase a bagbalm? My little dog has a crusty nose and it's getting red around her nostrils. Thanks for any info. or help. S.A.

Just went to the vet for my dogs chapped nose. He said to put vaseline it. He said to put it on like you would chapstick several times a day.
