My dog on his right elbow is developing a hard callus. He does he lay on hard surfaced floors when he's hot, normally propped up on that elbow. I know its normal friction stuff, I not really worried.

But, I was wondering if there is anything i can put on to avoid it becoming cracked or infected?

Thanks in advance :)

I'd try some emu oil to keep the skin soft. Just a couple of drops and rub in. You may also want to get a cool type of mat that helps him stay cool instead of laying on the hard floor.

I had great success with Penaten cream. It's thick and a little goes a long way. Made in Germany I think. Traveler's actually regrowing fur on his elbows.
