Overweight Golden has raw elbow sores from getting up on

Customer Question

Overweight Golden has raw elbow sores from getting up on wood floor. What can I do for her?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the Golden?

Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today! Please give me a few moments to type my response to your question!

I am so sorry that your Golden is getting these spots. They are so difficult to treat besides removing them from the environment. The one helpful option that can be very responsive to is a product by Dogleggs that covers the elbows. It looks a little cumbersome but believe it or not dogs do really well with the cover. Your veterinarian has to do the measurements but they are cushioned specifically for this purpose of preventing issues with elbow pressure sores
