Elbow calluses

8934 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Karen2
Sierra has a small callus on her left elbow.
I'm assuming from laying on the cool (and rough)concrete this summer.:confused:
She lays on the vinyl floor in the kitchen but I haven't noticed that it affects her that way.
Should I rub some vitamin e into it to soften it and promote hair regrowth?
Is there anything else I could do for her?
Open to suggestions...

I've seen a cream, can't remember where, for dogs that is made for calloused elbows, and dry and crack pads and nails. So there is something out there but just can't remember what it's called or where I saw it.

Or just leave it alone.

A cream named Protecta-Pad is used for paw pads and elbows. It has a spearmint smell and my dog runs when I come near his front feet with the cream! It should soften up the calloused elbow and maybe hair will grow there again. Yes, it was probably the concrete floor that created her callous.
That's the one I saw (and have by the way)!
