Hi!

Denali has a red, sometimes slightly bloody patch on one elbow. It's starting to scab and there's two bumps.
Vet said it's the beginning of a callous from laying on hard surfaces. Trouble is, she like laying on tile rather than on beds or couches.

He said I should apply some ointment to it and wanted to give me some kind of expensive yeast treatment stuff. I thought it was a little over board and didn't want to immediately jump to medication.

Is there any kind of home/natural remedy I can apply to the elbow? Some kind of ointment or lotion I can use to keep it from getting worse and help it heal?

Thanks!

Tahiry

Oh, also, does anyone know why there's some cream or yellow in her coat? It's down her back, ears and head.

i'm not sure about a home remedy for the callous... gia, my 10yr old has them... tilden is 2yrs and does not (yet
). i have put (tea tree) oil on gia's elbows in the past just to soften them and keep them from bleeding -- but i believe that once they're there they're there to stay


the cream in her coat is not uncommon with wgsd -- it actually seems to be more common than not in the whites that i've seen in person. it can range from highlights to a completely cream dog.

check out this guy...

Wow! How did I just completely miss half of your post Camerafodder. Sorry!! lol
For some reason, I didn't even read the tea tree oil thing or look at the picture in there. Been a hectic day, thanks for the advice!
