Canine Elbow Calluses - Uncomfortable, Unsightly With Potential For Big Problems 

Elbow Butter All Natural Balm Conditions Your Dog's Elbow Calluses

Elbow calluses are uncomfortable for your dog, as the thick tissue inhibits movement.  Your dog's elbow calluses are frustrating for you, as nothing seems to do any good and you're tired of well-meaning friends asking what's wrong with your dog's elbows. It's extra maddening when your dog pushes the expensive orthopedic bed out of the way to sleep on the floor. The good news is you found us! Elbow Butter is packed full of rich, uber-moisturizers that melt into your dog’s elbow callus easing the tightness of the elbow callus and conditioning to help prevent cracking.

What Causes Elbow Calluses?

A callus is a protective barrier your dog's body creates to cushion the bone/area from pressure. 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. Enough hard landings can cause the callus to become cracked, bloody, infected or ulcerated.

Our large/giant breed dogs (not fat shaming) put more force/weight into their landing, which multiplies the effects. Plus, bigger dogs may be hotter and want to relax on a hard, cool surface such as; concrete, tile, the deck or patio or good old dirt. It's a viscous callus creating cycle! 

Elbow Butter Product Info

  • Individually handcrafted at The Blissful Dog in far northern Minnesota
  • All natural and organic ingredients used 
  • Available in .15 oz, .50 oz and 2 oz tubes & 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16 oz tins
  • With complete directions booklet

Elbow Butter is VERY thick and dense to penetrate and condition the thick callus tissue. A fluffy cream would not be effective.

How To Apply Elbow Butter

  • Wipe callus clean (wet wipe, warm washcloth etc.)
  • Warm Elbow Butter in palm prior to applying for faster absorption
  • Rub or dab Elbow Butter onto the callus
  • Give treat to distract from licking
  • Keep off carpet and furniture for 10-15 minutes after application

NOTE: Elbow Butter contains no active ingredients and will not harm your dog if they lick or eat some. But it needs to be absorbed to work, so distract your dog after application (treats, feed dinner, go for a walk).

We cannot guarantee Elbow Butter will remove your dog’s callus, grow hair back and have your dog bring you the remote. We CAN promise it will moisturize and condition the calluses.
