Dudley Nose: It’s winter, have you noticed change in the color of your dogs nose?

It’s winter, have you noticed change in the color of your dogs nose?

Your dog’s nose can change color by gradually fading from black to brown and even to pinkish-white. This condition, called Dudley nose, is most common in Siberian Huskies, Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, Bernese Mountain Dogs, and other light-colored dogs.

Snow noseisa separate but common condition in which dark pigment on the nose fades. If your dog has snow nose, then its nose slowly turns from black to pinkish-brown during the winter, then returns to its normal black color in spring and summer. Complete depigmentation does not occur. This change can happen every year.

Treatment: A number of home remedies have been advocated, but their success is questionable. Sunscreen, as described for nasal solar dermatitis, helps prevent ultraviolet injury to dogs who lack pigment.
