Dry Nose
 
Maus's nose looks chapped along the top edge. It doesn't look infected, just very dry. Any thoughts or advice?

Thanks, Natalie

Maybe you could put some vaseline on her nose while you hold her, so she doesn't lick it off?

I believe there are nose butter products for dogs as well. Is the dog light in color or been in the sun often recently? It could be from too much sun. I usually associate dry noses with very short-faced dogs or very old dogs, so it may be worth bringing up to your vet if it persists. It could be some kind of imbalance that would show up on bloodwork.

Susan and Reta, thanks so much for the good ideas. I'm intrigued with the notion of nose butter.
