I am new to this forum and just want to say thanks in advance. I have a 8 year old female English Springer Spaniel. She is a great family dog. She has been getting these scabs on the top of her left nose nostril. I have taken her to the vet who prescribed different creams. We tried that and that did not work. Next the vet prescribed steroids. That was awful and did not help. Next we tried giving her grapefruit extract and rubbed vitamin E on it and that did not help. The vet wants to do a biopsy on the nose. Has anyone ever had this issue or have had a biopsy on their dogs nose? Any thought of what it might be? Thank you for your attention in this matter.
