    Default"Scabs"??

    So a couple weeks ago I noticed these weird scab-like things on the outside of Abbey's elbows. When i was at the vet last, I mentioned them to the vet student and then when the supervising vet came in, nothing was said.. So I'm thinking they aren't something too horrible. I found another one on the inside of her left leg, too. The ones on the outside of her elbows, I have no clue what they could be from because they aren't in a spot where she could easily lick/nibble at them and they aren't in a spot where it could be from laying on the ground.. The one of the inside of her leg could be a hot spot or something to that sort, but I'm not sure.

    Here are some pictures... Any ideas?

    Ones on her elbows:

    Here's the one on her foot.. Kind of hard to get a good picture, but you can kind of see it:

    Looks like elbow callouses to me, nothing to worry about. I find Baloo gets them from laying on hard ground, I'll see them in the summer, and then they go away in the winter.

    I see. Well I'm glad to at least have an idea of what they are and that they aren't serious. Thanks!
