Lizzie has red sore looking patches on her elbows, she doesn't seem bothered by it and would let us move the hair too take a closer look.. the patches look a bit sore.. there seems to be no hair loss or itchyness. could it be mange? Some sort of allergy?
Could be the start of elbow calluses.
A lot of dogs have them; especially if they sit propped on their elbows a lot. When I adopted one of my girls, she had them really bad from being in a kennel for 4 months ... you can still see where they were, but the hair has grown over on them. I have a youngster who plays rough a lot and she has them, as well. So no, don't think you have to worry about allergies or mange.
Thanks, she does sit propped up on her elbows alot actually...
We just noticed the same thing on Clarence last night. He rests on his elbows a lot too. Seems like it bothered us more than it bothered him!
