Default dry elbows

Brody has rough elbows I guess from being on the concrete at the vet. What can I do for him? I am so tempted to put some suave hand lotion on him but I don't know if it will be harmful to his skin.

Try burts bees stuff.. I can't see that hurting him. Just double check the ingredient list.

I use this mary kay special formula stuff that works wonders.. a tiny dab softens skin up like nothing else. No idea if you can still get it, though.

As far as calluses on elbows go, though, they are normal. So unless it looks like it's bothering him I wouldn't do too much!

It actually does look kind of raw and I think it does hurt him a little. He is used to being on beds or carpet he never lays on the hard floor so I guess it did not take much time at the vet for this to happen. I don't have Burts Bees but I bought Johnsons and Johnsons baby lotion with aloe vera and vitamin E. I wonder if it would be ok to use.

I bet it will be. Try putting a tiny smear on. (If it's baby lotion it's very mild.. you shouldn't have trouble with it)
