    Defaultbald spot on elbows?

    Hamilton seems to have a patch of skin without fur on his elbows, is this common or should we be worried?

    Erns is 10.5 and doesn't have them. Tess is 5 and does. I asked the vet and he said normal and where the fur has rubbed of from lying down.

    Yep, normal. Kolby's elbows are pretty bald, most likely from laying on floors and his crate. Abbey isn't crated, but she still has them a little bit.

    Normal. Cinder has bald elbows with a little callus there. She also has a small spot on her chest of fur that's much thinner.

    Bauer has thin spots on his elbows, but not bald. He has a spot on his chest (about the size of 1/2 a playing card) that is almost completely worn bare. It's normal.
