So my 11-year old BT that I never see anymore (I'm away at college), has a terribly dry, flakey nose. No dry skin problems other than that, but it's like her nose is a dried-up shriveled piece of fruit! I know my parents have taken her to the vet for other things and I think the vet would have recommended something if it were a concern, since her lil schnoz is hard to miss, but I still think it must be somewhat painful and there's probably something that could be done about it.

This isn't a very good picture of it, but the brown area on her nose is where it's SUPER dry:



Does anyone else's piggie have this? Is it just an old age thing? Anything that can help it out?

My vet told me it was common in older dogs when my dog had the same problem. She told me to put Vaseline on it, and it did help, but it never went away totally.

Your Boston is very pretty!
