Ken Clean-Air System This is generally caused by cold, dry air. I've also heard that plastic food and water bowls can be a culprit, though I'm not sure how much truth there is to that. My girl had the 'snow nose' her first winter with us. It went away when the weather warmed up and since then she has never had it happen again. We heat our home with forced air, natural gas, heat and have a whole house humidifier. Since her first winter here I have adjusted the humidity in the house up a bit for the winter which may be why she hasn't had the pink nose in the winter again ... or it could be that she is just older and the dry winter air doesn't effect her as much.

One thing you could try is applying a product called Bag Balm to her nose every so often to moisturize. I used it the first winter Jazz was with us and it seemed to help a bit. The only issue with it was that she didn't care for it being applied to her nose, and she liked to lick it off once it had been applied. Even so, it did seem to help a bit.

I prefer my dog to have a black nose and was just wondering if there was a supplement or something to help boost the leather pigment.

Whiteshepherds Some people say vitamin k helps, also vitamin e. (I'd research and talk to a vet before trying them, I'm just passing along info I read on the internet)

Whiteshepherds Sometimes their noses will lighten up in the winter (snow nose) and then get dark again as the weather warms up but if it's pink at such a young age I'm guessing it's going to probably stay that way. No way to tell really, you just have to wait and see. The good news is it doesn't hurt the dog in any way.

Pink nose?

Will my 14 week old white shepherds nose turn back black? Is there any way to tell?
