I bought this for my 13-year-old Golden Retriever’s very dry and cracked nose. She hates anything being put on her nose, but she lets me put the Snout Balm on twice a day. It has made a significant difference already, the dry flaky bits have gone, and her nose is much smoother. She does try to lick it off, so I am very pleased that it is safe for her to do so. I highly recommend it and will certainly buy again.
