Wet Dog Noses

dog-sniffingThe nose is your dogs best friend. Did you know that his nose is 2 million times more sensitive than yours. Your dog’s sense of smell is his most important sense.  You can help him keep his nose healthy and don’t worry if his nose is wet or dry. Most of the time a dog’s nose is cool and moist because his tear ducts grain into his nose.  If your dog’s nose is dry, don’t worry. It doesn’t usually mean that he is sick.  An animal’s appetite and behavior are much better indicators of overall health. If your dog has a runny nose or a nasal discharge consult your veterinarian as it could be a sign of an allergy or illness. If your dog is active, and doesn’t turn down his dog treats, he is probably healthy.
