Almost a year ago i adopted my greyhound, when we adopted him i noticed he had a crusty nose, vets just said it was properly due to poor kennel diet and it would improve over time. Nearly a year has passed and his nose is still the same, sometimes the skin flakes off in big chunks and his nose looks normal again, but then it always goes back to being hard and crusty. I've tried changing his diet, oil and ointments and nothing seems to work... he doesn't seem to be in discomfort but it can't be very pleasant for him!

 

Does anyone else have this problem/ know what it could be?

 

here is a link with some pictures of his nose -

Looks like a mild case of Pemphigus. One of my italian greyhounds had that. His nose would peel up like a handlebar mustache. Didn't bother him at all or effect him anywhere else on his body.

All my vet suggested was putting a dab of vitamin E oil on his nose daily. She did not think prednisone was needed.

Could also be discoid lupus. Treatment is really simply, but you should see your vet. If your vet still thinks it's his diet, I would find a new vet.
