Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
I am sorry to hear you are worried about Brownie. My name is***** am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
I might try applying some cortisone containing ointment such as Cortaid or Cortizone 10 to reduce swelling and redness. The prescription antibiotic ointment mupirocin may help as well, but you would have to get it from your veterinarian. Triple antibiotic ointment or Neosporin would be my second choice.
To protect the area, Dog Leggs might be helpful to cover the callus:
It is hard to bandage the elbows; the wrapping usually just slides down. These cover and support the area without sliding.
Let me know what other questions I can answer and if this is helpful.
If it is fungal, which would be unusual in just one spot, you can try applying 1% miconazole ointment.
I hope you were able to see my response; I have not heard back from you! How is Brownie doing?
Gosh, I never heard back from you! I am sorry to answer questions and never know if the answer was received or helpful! How is Brownie?
