Hello again and thanks for waiting.
I have worked out an answer for you ...
1. While of course I cannot be 100% certain it does sound very likely to me that your dog may have a condition called Nasal Hyperkeratosis.
2. If the above is the diagnosis then it is rarely anything to worry about, this condition tends to happen more commonly in older dogs and is basically an abnormal build up of keratin for reasons unknown. The excess tissue will usually build up on the tip of the nose, but sometimes it may progress to crack or bleed.
3. Very often treatment is not necessary since mild cases are more a curiosity than a disease, however you may like to try applying a moist compress to the nose for 10 minutes or so to soften things up and then apply the likes of Vaseline, A&D Ointment or Ichthammol ointment. Do this twice a day, I have known this approach help.
4. Another approach would be a specific Keratolytic Gel such as Kerasolv these types of product contain Salicyclic, your vet will advise.
But the bot***** *****ne is that this sort of condition is rarely anything to worry too much about ...
