First off let me say, I'm VENTING. :wallbanging:

This is Robyn, our (I mean her) 6 year old Saint.
She's a good dog. Not the sharpest crayon in the box, but
a good dog.

My oldest daughter is a Vet Tech, so needless to say, she takes
dog healthcare to extremes. (at my expense)

This is her dog, Nigel.

We (Robyn and I) don't like it. It's a jerk, but
that has nothing to do with Robyn's nose.

You see there, at the top edge of it's cute black snout, how it's
developed rough scale like skin. Well, according to Vet girl, she maybe
should have some kind of surgery. I bet about 3 good tractors worth. :wallbanging:
What am I to say. IDK. It probably wouldn't bother me so much, except
that 5 years ago, Robyn had an eye tuck done, to keep the hair out of
her eyes.
You can see in this picture, how nicely her eyelids fit. (sarcasm there) :wallbanging:

Oh well, chances are, I'll just keep my mouth shut, and buy myself a tractor. :smilewink:

I should be so lucky as to be described like that.

 

 

 

Will, I know they have medical insurance for pets now.  Would the nose job be covered or seen as elective surgery?

Dave, Obama would have to be re-elected, before I start letting an insurance company take my

money for a dog. :(

Olde man's observation here, after about 46 yrs. in purebred dogs; try getting some vitamin E oil and rubbing some of the oil gently on the top of the nose where the rough skin is. That should help unless it is, as your daughter suspects, something more serious than a reaction to changing climate and the onset of the dry winter air. It might help, and certainly won't hurt. And as dumb as it sounds, before you go to the vet and have an established diagnosis, get the pet insurance, (I know, zing---duck, missed me, lol). It's not that expensive, your wife ( and you) love the dog, and it will pay off in the long run. If the vit.E works, terrific, and I charge nothing. The insurance can be cancelled after the trip to the vet. but you'll be covered if (when) things get expensive. Good luck. By the way, that's a nice looking Saint. I'll pass on Nigel.

 Really??, about all my dogs had that rough nose at some point, never had an vet said they need surgery or that it was a problem. Never heard of surgery for dry skin.

Pretty dog by the way. Must have some boxer in it if it's not too bright, I couldn't find 2 good brains cells to rub together between my two boxers. :rolling:  :rolling:

I have dogs most all my life, growing up i worked in a vet office as what they call a vet tech.  I currently have 4 dogs and there is no way they would get surgery for a little rough spot.  Like Oldedeers said a little Vit. E will go along way and it's alot cheaper.

You might remind your daughter of the dangers of going under antisthesia. And he could end up with a nose like Michael Jackson.

Thanks for the advice guys about the vitamin E cream.

 

Like I said, my daughter likes to take dog healthcare to extremes, but

I'm gonna put a big push on for the cream. Nothing will happen, nose

job wise unless I sign a cheque anyways.

My old dog used to get a scaly nose all the time. He lived for 18 years.

If Robyn lives that long, she'll probably have implants of some sort, new hips, and

whatever else Vet girl can dream up, done to her. Poor Robyn.
