Elbow callous???

-___- OK - so Anna is a 9 month old working line (who I very we'll exercised) BUT has always eatin any bedding I put in her crate, since like, day one of bringing her home. She ate 3 beds and a few blankets, so I came to the conclusion she can't have a bed in her crate. She is crated at night, and a few hours while I'm at work (my boyfriend his home with her during the day and will only crate her when he needs a break or when he goes in to the office)

I noticed 2 days ago that she is starting to get those callas's on her elbows! my puppy is getting pressure sores??? So I put a bed in her crate.... Annnnd.... It was torn to shreds, fluff everywhere! My concern is that she will get a blockage from eating dog beds and the fact that her beds are around 50.00

Has anyone ever had a dog with these? What can I do? Any tips to keep her from eating her bed?

This was the scene of the crime Elbow callous???-imageuploadedbypg-free1400842255.315266.jpg

Maybe try a blanket that lays flatter instead of a fat bed,Gunner has never chewed his blanket in his crate but he would a bed with stuffing in it, just a thought.good luck

I have had them on dogs before and not sure why I have not on the last three dogs who all spent the night in their crates with no bedding for the same reason.....2 of hte 3 were very active WL dogs.

The only callouses I get are on the outside of the lower leg below the hock (and all of my dogs have gotten some there) and musher's secret helps keep them at bay. Maybe it would help the elbows?

Get a Kuranda bed.

I got rid of the elbow calluses by cleaning the area with a dilute iodine solution and then applying a tiny amount of Penaten cream.

++ on the Kurunda. I don't have one in the crate but it is the only one my dog has not destroyed or even dented. Don't get a cheap knock off. It is the design that prevents them from getting ahold of the fabric.

I have paw balm by espree, it says in the container it can be used on elbows and I've been putting it on twice a day since I noticed the issue, I've never had a dog with this before so I'm feeling pretty bad about it, ill try the mushers secret, I can order some.
