Concrete Elbows, Any suggestions?

Postby HAPBTR » Sat Sep 15, 2007 2:54 pm

Hey All,

Wondered if anyone had any home remedy's for "Concrete Elbows". Zolf seems to have pretty bad calluses on his elbows, probably from concrete.

Does anyone has any suggestions to help with this?
:huh?:

ShurePets makes this balm for pads and elbows. I think we have an extra case of it, I'll get it to you next time I see you if you want. It can't hurt.

Bag Balm works good for rusty elbows too.

That's what I've used before. All dogs can get those on there elbows even ones in dirt/grass yards. Red kinda started getting them and then I started putting bag Balm and lotion on them and they disappeared and the hair grew back. IDK!

Bag Balm is near the First Aid section in Wal-Mart think Neosporin adn Band-Aids

The hair can grow back on the elbows???????

Are you SERIOUS???

Ella's skin on her elbows has gotten soft, but no hair has grown back in the year we've had her.

I'll try anything to get the hair to grow back in her elbows.

Get your pup a soft bed to prevent calluses. Treat them the same way you would treat your own calluses. If your pup sleeps on concrete to cool off in the summer, try getting one of those elevated beds...

I love Bag Balm! And I've also had great luck with emu oil.

Ben got some bag balm today!!!

Ella got a nice bath and soaked for 15 minutes (and that's NOT easy to do) and then we cleaned her ears, rubbed bag balm on her elbows, and put betadine on her bobo on her side.
I'm doing that until her pledgets come in the mail.
