The wet nose myth

When I was little, I was taught that a wet dog nose means the dog is healthy.
Being the owner of two dachshunds and observing their appearances and habits on a daily basis, I have noticed that their noses are not always wet. This resulted in me doing some further research on this subject.

It turns out that it is perfectly normal for your dog to have a wet and cool nose one moment and a drier nose the next. Phew!
Changes in texture (crusty, flaky) and colour (loss of pigmentation) of your dog’s nose should however be examined by a professional.
