Ask The Dog Guide: Sore Nose Wrinkles

November 9th, 2010 by Dan

Question:
My French Bulldog/Boston terrier male, Romeo has been facing an issue lately! His wrinkles by his nose have been moist and therefore have been reacting as an open sore and I am wondering if there is a cream or powder that can be suggested to help keep it dry and taken care of?

Answer:
Keeping wrinkley breeds comfortable (especially during the changing seasons) can be difficult! First, be sure that your pup is eating a high-quality diet, as foods containing byproducts can contribute to yeast problems and itching. If everything looks good in that department, I’ve discovered a great product that I use on my own wrinkle-nosed dog (a Dogue De Bordeaux) called Snout Soother. It’s all natural and as you can discern from the name – made especially for tender canine noses!
