Compulsive violent nose rubbing

Hi, My dog sasha shes 3 years old and very healthy but recently over the last few weeks she has developed a nose rubbing habit, she sometimes will get in a mood and start rubbing her snout on the ground and with her paws while making growling noises its like shes trying to pull her nose off. This may go on for a few minutes at a time. The side of her nose is now raw and red. I have examined her snout many times with no apparent abnormalities.

I think its prob just an itch or allergy, but i was reading a site before where a guy reckoned it is a sign of a tumor

What do you guys think?

Has she been to the vet since it started?
People over the internet cannot tell you if your dog has a tumor.

Has anything in daily life changed recently (such as diet)?

I'll second the vote for a vet, she could have an obstruction, tumor, allergy, or who knows what and if she's to th point she's making it raw she needs to be seen by a professional.

If you've examined her nose many times, how many times has a veterinarian examined it?

It could be any number of things, from allergies to skin conditions to foreign objects--including the potentially fatal foxtail, if you have those in your area.

Vet, ASAP.

I'm glad you got an appt booked, and hope they will do a thorough exam on your girl.

Dogs don't really usually "fake" things, and if this is a change in behavior--for weeks now--then it's a safe bet something is making her uncomfortable, so good on ya, for getting her in to be seen.

I sincerely hope it's nothing serious and the dog doc can get her sorted.

Please update and let us know the diagnosis--we can all benefit here from the knowledge.
