Elbow Butter Conditions Your Dog's Elbow Calluses

dog elbow calluses

Does Your Dog Have Thick, Ugly Elbow Calluses?

Elbow Callus Quandry

How many times has your dog walked past their $100 orthopedic dog bed and slammed down HARD on the floor, elbows first? Every time your dog hits elbows first on the concrete, tile, deck, or dirt the callus thickens as the overprotective ulna bone tries to protect the elbow. Sometimes calluses become cracked, bloody, infected, and ulcerated.

Elbow Butter conditions and moisturizes elbow calluses and maintenance usage keeps them healthy. Handcrafted by The Blissful Dog in far northern MN since 2002 and available in several sizes of tins and tubes, because dogs come in all sizes.

Complete ingredients, usage info, and product details are in tabs and videos below. Plus, more dog elbow callus info than you can imagine is here.

Our beloved Maggie passed on the 4th. But, I've sent the unused dry shampoo and aromatics for a senior dog to our friends and their Bo.

Elbow Butter Conditions Your Dog's Elbow Calluses

Has Helped

So far, so good. It’s mostly helped on his elbows where the calluses were just beginning. We’re still working on the ones on his back leg, which are harder :)

Miracle worker!!!!

My almost 3 year old German Shepherd has severe allergies to things in the environment and some foods. She started to develop calluses on her elbows and I was really worried they would get worse. I am happy to say she actually has hair growing back! Love this product, so happy to have found it.

We're pretty excited you found us, too. I love that my reply says 'To Crazy German Shepherd Girl.' Just makes me smile;-) Keep using her Elbow Butter and encourage her to lie on soft beds and you'll be doing great! Thank you again for the fun review. -Kathy

Elbow saver!

My dog has been itching his front elbows with his back feet until they bleed for over a year. We’ve tried multiple rounds of steroidal ointment from our vet with only minor improvement. Once we stop the ointment the itching starts again. I saw Blissful Dog on an internet ad and, after some research, liked their all-natural approach and decided to give them a try. We’ve been using the elbow butter for about a week and it is amazing. Maverick had huge bleeding bald spots for elbows and now they’re almost fully healed - and the fur is growing back! I’ve just ordered another (larger) tin of the elbow butter. I was skeptical at first but now I’m a believer. Thank you Blissful Dog for making my dog feel blissful!

Thank you, thank you! While I love all the reviews we get, I especially love when someone shares they were skeptical. Hey, I don't blame you, I probably would be also. The fur growing back is the tough part, as sometimes the coat/hair follicles are traumatized and it never grows back. Maverick is lucky that you caught it early enough.

Now if I could only figure out how to grow hair back onto human heads I'd be set. Thank you again! -Kathy

I’m a convert

My lab’s elbow callouses were awful: cracked, bleeding, and I’m sure he was uncomfortable. But after using the elbow butter for a little over a week, they’ve improved drastically! They no longer crack and bleed, the callouses are soft. They are also smaller and his fur is growing back. I’m just sorry I didn’t take a “before” picture.

What great news! Those elbow calluses can be tough to get better, so we're extra happy your Lab responded so quickly. Thank you, thank you for letting us know. -Kathy

I can’t believe this product

I have two large labs and they lay on concrete all the time as it is hot here and the concrete is cool. Both dogs elbows had got calluses and loss of hair and looked really bad. I got this elbow butter not even a week ago and already the one of the dogs you can’t even see anything but fur. The other is a lot better but I still need to use the butter. At first the. Dogs wanted to lick the butter off but I stayed with them a while and distracted them and they forgot about any licking. I was at the point of taking them to the vet when I ordered this butter because I didn’t realize it was them laying on concrete. This is an amazing product. Would buy again.

Your review means so much to us! Sometimes website experts tell me I put too much info on the website, but I know that dog lovers want to learn all they can find out about caring for their dogs. So it is extra exciting that your Labs had such good results. Thank you again for taking time to leave a review. Give your sweet Labs a hug from us. -Kathy


Gus, a 105 lb chocolate lab (he was 140!) is a rescue and came to us with really bad elbows and calluses on his paws. He used to wake us up licking his paws and elbows. In just over a week he's already sleeping better! His elbows aren't as puffy or hot!! I'll post pics when I see more of a difference, but so glad he's feeling better! He also had a bacterial bump on his chin that is looking better and he's not scratching at.
Thank you for a wonderful product and caring company!
