Old dog with a dry nose?

Hello, my dogs nose has been dry for a long time. Its OK during the summer, but gets really bad during the winter... It looks pretty painfull sometimes, but he doesnt do much about it.

Hes a 13 year old brittany spaniel, and hes a former hunting dog... My dad took him hunting when he was younger, but after he passed away, nobody took him hunting. He does love running around up at the cabin, but hes sore for about 4 days afterwords...



Anyways his nose gets a bit wetter after we go for a walk, but that means hes out of luck for the cold season.

Right now im putting some hand cream on his nose. I rub it in (which he doesnt like), and the give him a treat so he doenst lick it off his nose.
Its marykay stuff, because thats what my mom sells.

Is there anything else I can do for him? I love him to death, hes my buddy...
I know that sounds stupid, but I just cant stand his nose anymore. It looks really painfull, so I'll keep putting the hand cream on it twice a day.



Thanks alot, I appreciate it
~Nate

You can check out this product. Never used it but came up when I googled "dog nose moisturizer"

http://thewelladjusteddogco.com/index.html

This actually looks promising...I saved the site just in case my Dachshund gets the case of "dry nose".

Maybe something you can put in his diet? Humans could consume a lot more vitamin E for instance? I would suggest Vaseline, but that can act as a laxative for a pooch so if he licked it, you may end up with another problem. Good luck--I love Brittany's.

I'm no vet but I think a dry nose is a symptom not a condition. Don't treat the dry nose, find out what is causing it.

I think its an age related issue, but I cant be sure

Ill run over to the vet this weekend if all goes to plan on thursday, and ask about dry noses...

He still plays like a pup, and doesnt have too many issues, but hes gettin old.

I'll try feeding him oranges, then ill get back on what happens... 3 slices a day too much?
tks

Why oranges? koop's right, that is why I bet the vet can add something to your dogs diet to correct.
