  • Is a dogs nose supposed to be cold?

    Question:
    Is a dog's nose supposed to be cold?. My new puppy has a warm one all the time.

    Answer:
    Being able to tell if a dog is sick by how his nose feels is an old wives tale. Some dogs have cold noses and some have warm noses. As long as your puppy is eating, drinking and acting normal there is nothing to be concerned about. Have fun with your new puppy!
