Elbow sores

937 viewsCanine Arthritis Management

Are elbow sores normal? They are on both her front legs. Is there anything I can do to prevent them becoming worse?

She has hip displacia in the back legs and chronic arthritis in the front.

She is an 11 year old Labrador.

Answered question

Jack gets a dry, sore patch on his right elbow so we rub a little coconut oil into it and then put his leg warmers (not sure what to call them!) on him. This stops him getting at the oil and also protects the skin til its calmed down again. I cobbled it together from pictures online and it doesn’t bear close inspection because my sewing is attrocious!
