The coconut balm for doggy noses is the latest to join the line up of certified organic, vegan, and holistic products of the company.

What should you do if your favorite wet nose is suddenly dry? When you’ve ruled out any underlying medical condition behind the flaky muzzle, you’ll need to hydrate that cute nose back to life. Fortunately, Opie & Dixie have just the thing for dry doggie noses: Coconut Snoutstick.

The company, which produces grooming aids, healing balms, and non-dietary care solutions, prides itself on using only wholesome, natural ingredients for their products. The Snoutstick is no different, as this chapstick for pooches is certified organic and cruelty-free (with a Leaping Bunny seal of approval!). The product is based on coconut oil and contains only natural ingredients such as calendula and rosemary, and it’s naturally antibacterial, antifungal, and provides SPF4 protection for your precious pooch. Pawesome, right? And, in case your pooch would prefer them, Opie & Dixie already offers two other formulas: Lavender for gentle nose care and Pumpkin to soothe environmental damage.

In addition to snout care, this list of holistic pet products includes a range of all n atural shampoos for both cats and dogs, ear wash solution, Spotstik hotspot balm for sores, and a bestselling healing balm for paws (that also comes in chapstick form for convenient application). Debbie Guardian, president and founder of the company, came up with the formula herself, by making natural remedies for her own two pets: cute Daschund and Labrador mixes, named Opal (Opie) and Dixie. When she realized that her concoctions have fabulous results, she wanted to share her secrets with other pet parents and their precious furballs.

Opie & Dixie products contain no sulfates, parabens, synthetics, or chemicals and are based on certified organic and 100% vegan ingredients, which makes them ideally suited for sensitive pooches. In addition to making amazing holistic products, this company also paws it forward to our four-legged friends in need: a percentage of the profits is donated to Muttville Senior Dog Rescue and other animal advocacy organizations.
