    What could be wrong with my dogs nose?
    mrandmrscash posted:
    We have a 4 year old Samoyed. For the past few week his nose has been going through some changes in look and texture. He so far hasn't had any blisters or bleeding just very dry cracked nose, almost no black pigment left. Our other Samoyed is just starting to have the same problem. I have been putting mushers secret or at times snout butter.

    One thing that we have been doing for years for these samoyed boys is to constantly have a high velocity fan on for them. They LOVE to sit in front of the fan. I'm not sure if after all this time the fan is drying them up. I sometimes think it could be an immune disorder but it's hard to figure that out. My dog that has the worst problem with his nose so far his nose is the only issue.

    Any advice on what to do?
