Springer Spaniel with a sores on both front elbows

by Dave Pemberton
(Preston, Lancs, England)


My 12 year old male Springer Spaniel, Ewan has a big sore on each front elbow, with the vets advice we apply Hibiscrub and the vet has prescribed Prednicare steroids, but to no avail. These sores seem to enlarge, Ewan licks and chews them till they seem to pop and recede and the cycle continues.

Has anyone had the same problem, any advise would be appreciated.

Elbow Sores NEW
by: Susan

My 10 year old Springer has similar sores/dry skin on both of her elbows. My vet recommended that I bathe her with an oatmeal shampoo regularly (at least once a week) and also put hypoallergenic lotion on her elbows every night. I also bought TrizUltra+Keto DermaPet, which is a broad spectrum cleanser. The vet suggested putting this on the sores as well.

Elbow sores NEW
by: Michele

Elbow sores or callouses are common in older dogs. They get them from lying on them for so many years and they can be aggravated by chewing or licking.

My 13 year old Springer has one on her right elbow. She tends to start licking it when she is stressed. I bought some cortisone spray from our Vet, which is much safer that the shots. If she is in the licking mode I'll spray her elbow 3-4 times a day. It does seem to help, but doesn't completely stop it.
