    Default Pink Nose

    Cruise my puppy has a slight pink spot on her nose, at the moment I put zinc on it whenever she is outside, is it worth getting tattooed or is zinc good enough. She is vary rarely outside without it on her nose. She doesnt like me putting it on her nose but once its on it doesnt bother her.

    Yep Id go for zinc too.

    Pippi used ot have a pink stripe over one of her nostrils but it slowly changed colour and got smaller and smaller and her nose is now completely black.

    You use zinc on dogs for the same reason you use it on people

    Yes a friends BC had a very aggressive skin cancer cut off his pink nose. Zinc is a good way of reducing that risk

    Pink noses get sunburnt and are more prone to cancer
