Do All Dogs Have Wet Noses?

No. Contrary to popular belief, not all dogs have wet noses. It’s important to pay attention to your dog’s nose so that you know if his nose normally runs wet or is normally dry. By knowing what the norm is you will be able to identify with something is out of the norm. If your dog has a dry nose almost all the time and suddenly has a wet and drippy nose then you should call your vet to schedule an exam. The same is true vice versa. Typically, dogs will have wet noses because their noses secrete a thin layer of mucous that absorbs scent. If you’ve seen your dog lick his wet nose then you’ve probably seen him lick the mucous to find out more about the scent he’s picked up. A wet nose is also a way your dog can regulate his body temperature. Dogs tend to sweat through their feet and their noses. Learn more here or call your vet clinic Roanoke, VA.
