Snout Soother works like magic on my old Boston girl! In about a week, her nose is smooth again 🙂

Blissful Dog has the perfect solution! I have been using their “Nose Butter” on my Boston’s nose for 2 years, also the edges of her ears. She has Cushings and these awful bumps on the edges of her ears are gone. Her nose had an actual ridge of dry bumps – they are gone. Check their web page! I <3 this stuff for my little girl Boston!

I am so sorry. Cushings is terrible. Prayers.

Diane S. Brees

Thank you! She was diagnosed 2 years ago and is a true trooper! I am treating her without the chemicals that could kill her, home made dog food, natural herbal drops and lots of love! She still has sparkley eyes and sassy pants – <3 her dearly!

Burts bees makes a paw and nose lotion that works great. I got it at pet smart but you can probably get it and any good pet store

Our veterinarian recommended Vitamin E from capsules. Used scissors to pierce the capsule and dabbed it on her nose. Worked great and she didn’t mind it. Coconut oil works fine too but our other pups wanted to lick that and it could have led to conflicts.

My vet told me to put 1200 grams of fish oil in his food his very crusty dry nose has improved 100%. I also make my own dog food of boiled turke, sweet potatoe, carrots and brown rice. My older guy

I dab a little coconut oil on my Boston’s nose, for his pads sometimes coconut oil as well but it is very greasy on your floors or carpeting. Musher’s Secret is also good for the paws especially in the winter.

Sally Mapletoft

Sudacreme is good for both
