Horses get that.. It is called a capped hock. It is a hygroma type situation usually from repetitive trauma. Not uncommon in big dogs like Danes. My Emmie had the same thing on an elbow as a pup. In theory, making sure the dog lays on soft things, helps, ha! With Emmie, it was just a matter of time...
