    Hello there,
    I had a 6-month-old puppy, have had her for a month now, and noticed from the very beginning that her nose is always dry and hot... I wonder whether that is normal with some breeds (more energetic) or with puppies... In my mind, there has always been the equation of moist nose = good health.
    My dog is quite hot-tempered by the way, meaning she finds biting, mouthing, chewing a normal way of interacting (I of course try to teach her out of that but it is not easy). I know the most reasonable thing to do would be to take her to the vet but she lives miles away and I dont have a car...
    Thank you!

    Maybe my post doesn't sound like a question, so I'll just rephrase it:
    Should I be worried if my puppy's nose is always dry?
    Thanks again!
