Your Pet's Nose

  This morning I received a very interesting article from Dr. Karen Becker about our pet's noses. This applies to both dogs and cats and I want to share it with you.
Here is the short form.
  • Contrary to the popular myth about cold, wet noses, a warm, dry nose isn’t a sign your pet is ill unless other symptoms are present, for example, loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, or lethargy.
  • The time to take notice is if your dog’s or cat’s nose changes texture or color. If the skin seems flaky or crusty or is cracking, or if the nose seems to be losing pigmentation, you’ll want to have your vet take a look at it.
  • Your pet’s nose can change color either temporarily or permanently, for benign reasons or more serious ones. There are a wide variety of causes for nose pigmentation changes.
  • Signs of a potential problem with the nose are an unusual nasal discharge, swelling, an unpleasant smell, or if your pet seems to be having trouble breathing.
  • There are several diseases that can affect the nose, so you should learn what your pet’s nose looks like when it’s healthy. That way, you’ll be able to tell right away if a problem might be developing.
