My 1-y.o. just returned from boarding and..

..he has pus-filled nodules on the outsides of his elbows.. Not from pressure on elbows. I'm guessing hot spots from ? stress? I plan to bathe his elbows in Rx 'poo tomorrow. Anyone heard of this? I tried to google this in this forum + it refused to give me any history! Thanks so much, Mamie

Maybe infections from a dirty environment. Take him to the vet and get a report to have the kennel respond.

I'm with Wolfy Dog. Take your dog into the vet so that it can be diagnosed and treated, and I would be certain to alert the boarding place of what you saw and that you are taking the dog in. If it turns out to be something that could have happened due to things improperly cleaned, the boarding place should at least pay for treatment. :/

We had a sad few cases once where an employee at a doggie daycare/boarding place didn't mix the cleaner right and had it far too strong. Easily half a dozen dogs were brought in because of ulcers on their paws, mouths, vomiting. The people who owned the place felt terrible, immediately figured out what was going on and paid for all of the dogs who required treatment without question. That to me is how they should respond with an injury like that. :/
