Does a cold, wet nose mean your pet is healthy?

A cold, wet nose is just one sign of wellness in cats and dogs and should not be considered in isolation as an indication of overall health. On occasion you will find a healthy pet with a warm dry nose, and on the other hand a sick pet with a cold, wet nose. If your pet has a dry nose and is showing signs of illness or pain (check the links below for other signs you can look out for), they should see a veterinarian. Similarly, unwell pets with cold, wet noses should also have a veterinary check-up.
