Began using this (from puppyhood) two years ago on my little dog where he has a no-fur no-pigment area above where the black leather of his nose begins. It continues to protect beautifully! He has never minded it being rubbed in before each time he goes outside (or when he is basking in a bright patch of sunshine when inside) and he has never experienced either sunburn or windburn because of this product!! It is amazing! In fact, recently I noticed that one of my old dogs had an area on the black leather on her nose on top that had peeled away, leaving a bare patch of skin and the area was getting hard and crusty. I immediately began applying this product several times a day and not only has the area become once again soft and supple (in just two weeks,) the black pigment is returning! I am going to continue to use this on the top of her nose even after it is completely healed in order to keep the area soft and supple as she grows even older. The only caution I have about the product is that after two years I still had plenty left but it had turned grayish in color and begun to be a bit smelly (the product when new is what I would call "slightly off-white" and does not have barely any kind of scent at all.) I wasn't sure if that meant that it was becoming "spoiled" so just to be on the safe side I bought a new container and problem solved...normal pale coloring and only the faintest of a pleasant odor. This stuff is awesome!!! I sure hope they never discontinue making it!!!! I NEVER bother doing product reviews but this one needed to be said!!
This product is amazing. I have an elderly lab whose nose gets crusty and dry and cracked. We realized it’s healing properties by accident when we were simply applying as sunscreen to his lighter labrador nose. We have tried at least half a dozen products for the crust yucky issue. Nothing comes close to healing his nose and returning it back to its shiny, wet self. We can’t live without this! He doesn’t love it, but he lets me put it on and what he doesn’t rub or lick off does an amazing job!
Lil Buddy did not mind us applying this sunscreen to his nose and paw pads. we were worried that he was not used to being in the sun when we visited SC. the vet said it was OK to use. so, we tried it. seemed to work
I have two older yellow labs who have noses changing from black to brown... And along with the increasing rates of cancer in older dogs overall, I added this nose cream to our mix. The dogs balked at first, but since have come to appreciate this product. It dries fairly quickly and I don't notice them licking their noses as often. They don's have the dry ring on the nose either that other products I have used created.
My dog has an area above his nose that is light in color. On long hikes this area would get pink. This balm does a great job of protecting his nose from sunburn. It is clear, without scent, goes on easily & my dog does not try to lick it off as it’s tasteless. Highly recommend.
First of all I have to say that when I received this I was shocked at the size of it, as it is MICROSCOPIC for the price!!! What a blatant RIP OFF!! Secondly, each time I put it on my dog's nose, she licks it off, so I'm not sure if it's effective or if it's worth buying... Food for thought....
I’ve tried to put it on both of my rough collies and they lick it off, when I try to reapply they run away! I can’t really say if it works or not.
She can spend time outdoors without getting a burnt nose. Highly recommended
Contains chemicals for sunscreen. My dog licks it off and ingests dangerous chemicals.
Lab does not care for it rubs the carpet with nose when we apply it
