Distract, apply, & reward!
With a distraction in tow (we love training treats or maybe their favorite toy), clean up any excess dirt or debris evident around the affected area, and use two fingers or a low-absorbent cloth to gently apply a generous amount of Snout Soother to your dog’s nose. Follow up every application with a treat, playtime, a nice belly rub, or whatever your dog’s favorite reward is!
To start, we recommend applying the balm at least two to three times daily. Using the balm before bed is ideal due to the peak of healing and regeneration that occurs in dogs while they sleep.
Reduce frequency as your dog’s nose improves using less often to maintain a beautiful, healthy snout.
Give your dog a bone or favorite treat, go for a walk, play tug, belly rubs, or dab a bit of Snout Soother (or peanut butter!) on top of their paw so they lick their paw instead of their nose. This will allow time for the carrier oils in Snout Soother to work their magic and deliver those healing nutrients deep into the skin.
WHAT IF MY DOG LICKS IT OFF?
Natural Dog Snout Soother is 100% natural, safe and edible. Primary ingredients include nut oils and butters, which can be appealing to dogs, so they may attempt to lick it off. This is perfectly normal! Snout Soother will still work even if most of it is licked off. Though, for best results, we advise using distractions such as treats or mealtime to allow more time for the product to work it's magic!
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I APPLY SNOUT SOOTHER?
The more often you are able to apply Snout Soother to your dog’s nose, the better. We recommend applying at least 2-3 times per day – especially before bedtime when bodies are healing and regenerating. Once your dog’s nose is healthy, you can reduce the frequency of applications to maintain a healthy and hydrated nose.
CAN SNOUT SOOTHER BE USED ON OTHER ANIMALS?
Absolutely! Snout Soother can be used on all animals – even humans!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SNOUT SOOTHER AND COCONUT OIL?
Virgin organic coconut oil is amazing, which is why we include it in many of our formulas! However, coconut oil is a very light moisturizer and just does not have the same healing power as Snout Soother. We hear from many customers, who don’t get results from only using coconut oil, that they are finally able to heal their dog’s nose with Snout Soother.
WHAT DO I DO IF MY DOG RESIST APPLYING THE NOSE BALM?
Many dogs do not want their noses messed with because those tissues are highly sensitive - touching IS painful even if they don't show it (Dogs are stoic by nature). Dogs also have many nerve endings in their noses. Imagine chapped lips - ouch!
There are several ways of accomplishing this (depending on your dog). What we hear the most from our customers is to make sure your dog associates the application of Snout Soother as a "reward" - not as a negative or confining situation.
Holding down or confining may not be the best option, either, as most dogs will resist or fear constraint. If you coax your dog with a FIRM, but gentle, approach (and sometimes treats), you should get a better response.
You might try holding a food reward in your hand and let your dog get a sniff of it. As he is licking or nibbling the treat, try to carefully swipe a bit of Snout Soother on your dog's nose. If your dog begins to associate yummy treats with getting something put on his nose, you should have a better response.
You could also try tug toys or belly rubs - anything to distract your dog. Tug works well for many dogs and they will let you do just about anything to their noses with a tug toy firmly locked in their jaws. At that point, keeping the tug toy is way more important than worrying about anyone touching their nose.
Don't give up! They will finally end up with a healthy nose and be able to live pain free.
