Leftover food can sometimes get stuck in the bowl, and where there is food there will be bacteria. Your dog’s unsuspecting nose will get wet and collect some water bowl pathogens that can cause kennel nose.

6. Abrasion Injury

Whether the dog loves popping its head through the crate holes or is a little bit eager and clumsy, abrasion can cause injury to a dog’s nose.

7. Pemphigus Foliaceus
