Does anyone know why my dogs nose is dry,cracked and sometimes bleeds.

I took him to the vet a couple months ago. He gave me an ointment. It started to get better, but now it seems to be getting worse. Now it bleeds sometimes. We 1st thought he got bit by a spider????? Any suggestions?

Dogs sometimes get this because of an autoimmune disorder, so I'd try going back to the vet and having some blood tests run to see if he really is okay.

It could also be allergies, or a contact allergy, but I doubt it was a spider bite. Is there anything you can think of in your environment that is new?

Is he on any medication at all? Even if a vet tells you there's no side effects from a medication, there can be many.

Good luck!
