All the FAQs On Your Dog's Elbow Calluses

Everything Elbow Callus

What Causes Elbow Calluses?

Your dog's overprotective ulna bone tries to protect the bony part of the elbow that hits the ground first. With every landing on a hard surface, the ulna tells the skin to get thicker and thicker, and pretty soon there is a callus. 

Enough hard landings can cause the callus to become cracked, bloody, infected, or ulcerated.

To top it off, every time your dog slams down on a hard surface, the callus is made thicker. or recreated.

Our large/giant breed dogs (not fat-shaming) put more force/weight into their landing, which multiplies the effects. It's a vicious callus-creating cycle! 

Heavily coated giant breeds don't usually have as many elbow callus issues as shorter coated breeds, as their coat softens the blow of the elbow against the ground.

In warmer areas hard surfaces are usually cooler for big dogs, creating a dilemma. Your Lab is hot and just wants to spread across the cool concrete of the patio. He doesn't care about his elbow calluses, he just wants to cool his belly.

Your Newfie has so much coat, that slamming to the ground is softened. Good thing your Newfie is too polite to gloat!

• Provide comfy beds in multiple locations

• Encourage your dog to use them

•Use Elbow Butter 

• Keep calluses clean 

• Keep your dog at a healthy weight

• Consult your veterinarian as needed (if it bleeds or becomes fluid-filled)

While Elbow Butter can help the callus heal, it cannot cure the tendency toward calluses.

Clients have reported calluses disappearing completely and hair growing back, BUT that is not guaranteed. Like those weight loss ads that say, “These results are not typical of all users.” 

• It depends on if your dog continues to land hard on their elbows.

• It depends on if your dog will use their bed, at least some of the time.

• It depends on how thick the calluses were to begin with.

Remember, your dog re-creates the callus when they lie on a hard surface.

Elbow Butter conditions the callus and helps keep it from bleeding, The anti-fungal and anti-bacterial power of our herbal ingredients help keep infections at bay.

Most dogs do experience a lessening in size of the callus and it becomes more pliable and less tight and restrictive.

Keeping expectations real!

#1 Tip! WARM For faster absorption put the tin or tube in your pocket for a few minutes to warm it.

Wipe callus clean.

Scoop a bit out with finger or spoon (if in tin), warm more in your palm if needed.

DAB or rub on dog's elbow callus

DISTRACT with a treat, pet them, go for a walk

DONE

DISTRACTto keep your dog from licking it off (give treat, feed dinner, go for walk)

REPEAT 2-3x daily for 1-3 days or until there is improvement

Use as needed for maintenance (usually 1-2x a week)

Keep off carpet and furniture for 10-15 minutes after application.

We've seen suspender-looking/sling things one puts on to keep their dog from licking. Use your own judgement, my dogs would make it worse to get that contraption off. You may have better luck! Or better trained dogs.

Products have no active ingredients and will not harm your dog if they lick some off. But we want the product to get it's work done, so distract away!

Its working

So far we been using it for three weeks and its working Venus our German shepherd .it was pretty bad she keeps licking the scab off her elbow so at night I put the elbow butter on watch her for awhile so it soaks in then I will put a loose sock over it so she doesn't lick it at night . We have been putting the elbow butter twice a day during the day I dont covered it because I can keep an eye on her so far it's been working

Hang in there! Elbolw Calluses are a much tougher issue to deal with than some of the other ailments we have products for. Your dog is VERY fortunate to have you going the extra mile for her. Love her name, too! Thank you for keeping us appraised of hopw she is doing! Kathy PS - Now I have that Shocking Blue Venus song from 1968 stuck in my mind. I showed my age, didn't I?

Dry Elbows

I tried Blissful's elbow butter and I must say it does make a difference in my 140 pound Rottweiler's dry, white, cracked elbows. I will be a return customer for sure!

A VERY Blissful Dog

My foster dog Triton came to us with lots of pressure sores on his joints and skin, from laying on hard surfaces. After 3 weeks, he is truly a Blissful Dog and there are no wounds visible. His brother Kane also enjoys the flavor and helps with clean up.

Can Humans Use This, Too?

We received a tin of balm on a 95 degree day. The balm was not affected by the heat. I had been concerned that the balm would arrive in a partially liquified state after being transported in a hot delivery truck. If you live in TX, don’t hesitate to order it this summer. I just applied the balm for a second time the day after the first application. Our lab/golden mix’s elbow callouses already felt like skin instead of the crust of a loaf of sour dough bread. I’m impressed with the balm’s absorbency into the callouses. So, in my part of TX some of us wear open shoes year round. Can I use this balm on my heels? ;>)

My apologies for the delay in my reply, no excuses. Yes! Yes! Yes! You can use any of our products. Our ingredients come from cosmetics and bath and body resources and are perfectly fine for people to use. All of us here use almost every product. I can promise the butters feel like heaven on Texas summer feet! -Kathy

Jessica, with Lennydog
His Elbows are Looking Healthy again!

Our medium sized dog always finds a cold hard place to lay which over time has caused thick callouses to build up. I use the elbow butter on them daily and now they are looking healthy. One elbow is almost all repaired already and the other has fur growing back.

Love it!

My sweet girl Ms. Snow loves having her elbows rubbed with the elbow butter!
She can see me pick up the tin and she come running,flops down on the floor and lifts her leg!
The relief must be tremendous for her.
The callouses are so much softer and no longer look as if they could bleed.
I have referred my friends to you.
Again I Love this product and will definitely purchase again.

Thank you so much for sharing Ms. Snow's picture with us. We LOVE that she comes running for her Spa Time with an elbow massage. What a sweetie! -Kathy ps-my apologies for taking so long in my reply, I got behind, well, everything. :@
