Dry Cracked Nose
by Eddie Hanson
Please help I have a year old blue nose male with a dry cracked nose that seems to be turning brownish at the top of his nose. Light colored bowel movements. Seems active. Hot weather but he's not dehydrated. I have no money for a vet!!!
Your dog needs to be seen by a vet. While a dry nose by itself doesn't necessarily mean a dog is ill, a dry, cracked nose with discoloration should definitely be examined by a professional.
Then there's the light color of his stools which depending on how pale they are could just be the kind of food he's on. Or could be something relatively serious like a symptom of liver dysfunction.
Many vets will work with you if your dog is already a patient and you ask for consideration to pay the bill over time. Barring that, it's up to you to get creative.
Borrow the money if you can. Sell something you don't need. Create a Facebook page for your dog and ask friends and family to donate thru Paypal. But don't give up and don't put it off.
Your dog can't take himself to the vet. He needs you to make it happen.
