What to Know About a Dog Nose

Article written by Nancy Settecasi

Unlike other parts of the body, the dog nose does not need any cleaning or taking care of. A dog's nose is usually cool and moist, but a warm, dry nose is not necessarily a reason for concern. A warm, dry dog nose can be a problem only if there are other characteristics associated with it, such as cracked skin, scabs or open sores with changes in the color of the nose. Dogs can also be prone to sunburn on their noses which can lead to skin cancer. A dog owner should pay attention to any physical changes in their dog's nose. For instance:

Dog bathing

Dog fur

Dog ears

Dog eyes

Dog nails

Dog nose

Dog skin

Dog teeth
