Dog Nose Job is 100% natural and has been developed to be as hypoallergenic as possible even for dogs with sensitivities. While safe for most, of course it is possible to be allergic to natural oils, nut oils in particular; as well as essential oils, waxes, natural nut butters and plant extracts. Since all natural ingredients can be broken down into chemical components, allergic reactions are a possibility in sensitive animals and/or individuals.For this reason, we recommend double patch testing outlined below.How do I double patch test for allergic reactions?
We recommend a double patch test. Apply a small amount of the product on your dog’s skin in an area with little to no hair – we recommend patch testing under the armpit. Observe the area for 24 hours. If redness, irritation, or inflammation occur on the skin, discontinue use. If after 24 hours there is no reaction observed on the skin – REPEAT the patch test and check again after 12-24 hours. If there is no allergic reaction from the double patch test, it is safe to use as directed.

While we haven’t received any reports of allergic reactions regarding our products to date, we recommend double patch testing ANY new product you use on your dog to rule out the possibility your pet has an allergy, even if it’s not specifically recommended by the manufacturer.

Do your canine products have a scent?
Yes. Of course they do! Products made with natural ingredients ALL have a scent. Even though we humans might not smell some subtle odors, our dogs certainly can.

Green Udders doesn’t add fake fragrances to their products and never will. But, they aren’t going to tell you that because something is natural that it is unscented just because it’s natural. Nut butters, botanical extracts, plant and seed oils – they all have a scent. The essential oils used are highly concentrated and are the most ‘scented’ ingredient, and these oils are critical to the overall success of our products based on their unique properties individually and collectively in synergy. We’ve tested the “scent” of Dog Nose Job on a wide variety of dogs and many actually try to lick the product straight out of the container before we’ve tried to use it on them!

How do I apply the Dog Nose Job balm, and how often?
After you’ve passed the double patch test, apply from the container as needed to the outside of your dogs clean nose nose with a fingertip – let the balm melt a little on your fingertip before applying. A little goes along way, and it’s safe to use several times a day, especially before bedtime.

Here’s the fun part. What you may not know, is that your dog probably won’t want you coming directly at their nose with a finger. It might be a total surprise to them, much like someone walking straight up to you and suddenly, without warning putting a finger in your belly button. So, you may have to be somewhat sneaky and approach your dog by surprise from the side! After applying it, it’s normal (and safe) for your dog to lick at it.

What if my dog tries to lick it off?
Dog Nose Job is non-toxic will not harm your dog when used as directed. It’s natural for your dog to lick its nose and particularly, it’s natural for your dog to lick after Dog Nose Job is first applied. Of course, you don’t want to leave the jar where your dog could get into it, and it’s best applied when you can distract your dog. Playtime, a walk or a treat can be a good distraction after applying.

Can Dog Nose Job be used on sore, scaly, scratched, cut or broken skin?

Yes, Dog Nose Job is safe to use on sore, scaly or broken skin – (after double patch testing – see how to double patch test above. The balm will soothe and promote rapid natural regeneration and healing of your dog’s healthy skin tissue.

Can it be used on other animals?
This product has been developed and tested specifically for use on dogs only, and therefore we do not recommend that it be used on other animals.

Can people use this products on themselves?
Some do! Although we don’t specifically target or recommend these products for human use, they are safe for external use only for most humans who are not pregnant, and – for those who are not allergic to any of the ingredients. As in the intended use of our products on your beloved dog, you should follow the double patch test instructions above to be sure that you don’t have an allergic reaction. While we don’t market these products for human use, nor do we recommend them for use on humans, we know people might try it on themselves anyway. That is the nature of people!

We’ve heard from people that have used Dog Nose Job in a variety of ways, although none have ever written to tell us they have used it because they themselves actually wanted a shiny human nose. They have reportedly used it successfully as a lip balm, on cracked heels, dry skin patches, on scratches that itch, sore skin, scrapes, rashes, etc. Some folks swear by it.

Is it safe for pregnant women?
Because pregnant women can be incredibly sensitive to a variety of natural herbal ingredients and preparations, caution should be taken by pregnant women when using any natural herbal preparation during pregnancy.

Some essential oils and herbs are contraindicated for pregnant women, particularly when taken orally, and in their concentrated states. Even though the concentrations in our formulas are small in dilution, and none of our formulas are made specifically for humans or for internal use (and are likely safe topically), we prefer to err on the side of caution and recommend pregnant women avoid direct contact – when it comes to natural herbal preparations and pregnant women, there exists much conflicting information and not enough solid research. We advise that you consult a healthcare professional for medical advice before using any natural herbal ingredients while you are pregnant.
