Default Hereditary nasal Parakeratosis

Hi I have a 5 year old lab who had recently been diagnosed with Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis and am after some advice on this, ideally from anyone with experience or in a similar situation.
Also thinking of changing insurance (have claimed for a biopsy to test her nose aswell as for cream), is this condition likely to cause further expense down the road or is it most likely to just be creams when it flairs up?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer

It's not a problem I've ever had any experience of, but I know people who have. So if you don't get answers I'll ask the question and post here later.

Regards, John

It's not something I've any experience of either, but a word of warning about changing insurance companies, it would be classed as a pre-existing condition and a new company wouldn't pay out for any treatment.

I have to say I'm surprised it has only shown itself now, it generally shows up far earlier. Have you had the dog from it being a puppy? If you have, then I would suggest getting it DNA tested for the condition, just to confirm it's actually HNPK.
