    Isis has had a dry, cracked nose for about two months now. She goes to the vet regularly and is due to go this month. I have been putting vitamin E oil on it. I am just wondering if other Boxers have had the same thing, and please tell me it is just dry skin and nothing more serious. I look forward to your replies.

    Thank you.

    It's not uncommon for boxers to have a dry crusty nose. I would try Bag Balm. Some people have had success with it.

    Vasoline/petroleum jelly works too.

    Rocky had that problem also and we used Vitamin E. Worked great.

    Yes Billy has this problem too. I rub vaseline into it for 4 days running and then on the 5th day I pick off the bits - they come off easily after vaselining.

    Thank you - I feel relieved now. I have tried both Vaseline and Vitamin E but I guess I just need to be more persistent.
