Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your Shepherd's nose. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Can you possibly post a picture her of her nose? This could be many things: a wound or injury; a sunshine/ UV light induce condition called discoid lupus; an infection; a growth or polyp in her nose.

How old is she? Does she have any other health issues?
