Is a dog's dry nose bad?
A dry dog nose can quickly go from bad to worse, drying out and forming crusty scabs that flake off and bleed.
It is a commonly cited fact that if your dog's nose is dry they are sick.
A dry nose doesn't always mean your dog is sick, but it does indicate an underlying issue such as an allergy or irritant.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
