Questions for Dr. Shawn - Dry Nose

Back to Ask Dr Shawn page...


"Dear Dr. Shawn:
"Is it true that if a dog has a dry nose, he's sick?"

”No this is an old wives’ tale. It is true that some sick dogs do have drying of the nose, but most of the ill dogs I treat do not. However, if the dry nose is a new condition for your dog, I would certainly have this checked out as it might be a sign of illness."
