Psoriasis, pressure sore or callus?

949 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Wallydog
My Wally (aka Wallydog) developed a skin growth a year ago on his elbow but it seems to be larger now. Does anyone know what is causing it and what treatment may help? I did go to a vet then but it was small and they weren't concerned.!

If it s a callous, a way to keep it from getting bigger is to provide your dog with somewhere soft to lay on. All my bog dogs have callouses on their elbows because they like to lay on the cold floor to keep cool (winter-loving dogs here). They do use the couch and the dog couch, but they get too warm after a while and move to the floor eventually. Other than that, I don't really have anything else to add. Hopefully someone will have better ideas for you.
Wally does the same when he gets warm :/
