Chippy is beginning to develop bald patches on her elbows. What could be the cause and remedy?
Hi Himanshu Rottweilers are heavy dogs, and if they spend a lot of time lying on hard surfaces they can develop 'calluses' on their elbows - sometimes on their rear legs too. I'd guess this is what's happening.
The best thing to do is make sure that Chippy has a soft bed to protect her joints from the 'wear and tear' of hard floors, ground etc.
It's nothing serious to worry about, but she would be more comfortable on a soft surface and that should allow these calluses to improve.
