Default Nasal/Digital Hyperkeratosis

Hi Debra,

Hyperkeratosis presents a disease that can affect both nose and paws. It occurs when a dogs body produces too much keratin. Keratin is a structural protein of everyone’s body and is meritorious for hair production. Hyperkeratosis is followed by ugly-looking crusts on a dog’s nose and hair on its paw pads.

For more information about Hyperkeratosis, I recommend reading the article https://flora4pets.com/blogs/news/hy...og-how-to-cure.
There are also some suggestions for natural treatment.

been giving since (50mgs daily). This past winter the nose has been far
worse, possibly aggrevated by 1. dog sleeping near heater. 2. dog
sticking head out of car window.
I put Vitamin E cream, paw paw ointment, and nappy rash cream, Bepanthen
on his nose, all of which he licks off.
His diet is excellent- Royal Canin for Labs, raw kangaroo mince, fruit
and vegies, raw meaty bones.
We are daily dog park attenders, so he gets plenty of exercise and

The paws did seem to respond to the Zinc and currently are not a
I would welcome any suggestions for treatment.
