OK got it the picture

That looks like a condition called hyperkeratosis where the skin cells on the nose over multiple too soon and disrupt the normal skin renewal process.

I will usually send home this produce to be applied once to twice a day for a few weeks then recheck.

If it is not improving in a week he will need to see your regular veterinarian to make sure this is not an autoimmune condition which can also sometimes look like this.

Adding in omega 3 supplements also help it from coming back once it has been treated.
