    Default What are those thngs on his elbows ?

    OK , i guess there is a proper name for what i call a dogs elbow ??

    MY last 2 dogs had the black ,hairless patches on thier elbows from lying on the hard ground all the time. I guess they are like a callous (spelling?).
    Mojos got em already and i'm wondering if i can put somthing on them, like a cream or somthing ,as i reckon they will be huge and ugly by the time he's 2 or 3.
    They dont bother him or my last dogs but if they get really big can they get bad, like start to bleed or somthing ?? Probably worrying about nothing, just thought it was somthing old dogs get, not a 6 month old pup. What are they called ?? and is there a proper name for that part of a dog ? I dont even know what parts of dogs are called, i just go with head, shoulder, neck etc like a human but i've heard others mention tricky names that i've had to google to know what we where talking about.

    Just found this

    Purchase an ointment or lotion such as aloe, Vitamin E or bag balm from a veterinarian or pet supply store if you like. This can soften the calluses and improve the appearance of your dog's skin. Rub the product into the callus until it is almost completely dry. If your dog tries to lick it, distract her with a long walk or chew toy. Or you can use an Elizabethan collar until the area is completely dry.
    Works for your hands lol Bella has them too I think, to me it just looks like her hair is dirty!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    You can also grow your own Aloe Vera. Wonderful stuff that's easy to grow and you can just squeeze the juice from the leaves straight onto the spot.

    Just a bit of moisturiser will help, but the best way to avoid it is nice soft bedding. Cooling beds are great in summer as it encourages the dog to lay on the soft cold bed rather than the hard cold concrete or tiles.

    Thanks C.L. He has a few comfy beds but he always plonks on tiles. I'll suss out those cooling beds as it seems to be getting hotter by the day up here.
