Thank you for your reply, this is the most common answer I found searching google was the lying on hard surfaces, and I'm hoping that this is the reason. He does definitely like to lie on my tile floor.It is on the side of the elbow though, not the bottom where he most often lies and I would expect to see a callous. Searching pictures those callous's seem to be a black scab or sometimes a soft lump, his is red and fresh looking, flattened, hard, and raised a good couple mm from the surrounding skin.Also have had him for a year almost and just seeing this now. Is there any way to confirm that it is just from hard surface other than taking him to the vet? Will get a picture when I get home from work should have taken one this morning. If you still think that is what it is I will definitely get some bandages and ointments tonight and monitor to make sure it get's better.Thanks again, much appreciated.
Perfect, thanks again :) Eased my worrying a lot. Automatically think the worst. Here are a few pictures. Sorry it took so long I just got home from work. Going to go get bandages and neosporin now. Hopefully these are helpful his fur does get in the way was hard to get any that showed it. Let me know if you still think it is just from lying on hard surface please or if you would like any more info or pictures.
Okay thank you very much. Can I use polysporin instead of neosporin? Neosporin requires a prescription at the drug store. And already put some polysporin on and attempted to wrap it. Will definitely go look for betadine and hydrocorisone then regardless.
Very helpful, much appreciated :)Do you think it is anything that could be contagious by the way? Should he be kept away from other dogs or animals at all?
