Dry nose in a dog.

Species: Dog
Breed: a lil dog
Age: 8-11 years
is it normal that my 10 year old dog haves a very dry nose everytime?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

Did you know that a cold or a wet or a dry nose really doesn't mean anything in dogs?

Yes, it is true that if a dog is dehydrated their nose will be dry. But, a healthy dog can have a dry nose as well.
