I bathed my dog last night and when drying him i found he had bald patches on both his front elbows. He has a bald patch surround by broken furr. There is no reddness or slitting of skin, its just very had. I'm almost sure its callouses, he's 5 years, not sure on his weight at the min (but i know he's carrying a bit extra). And he's a collie cross. I've been watching him and from what i can the bald patches appear to be at the correct angel to the floor when he's laid. He does sleep on the carpet, he has a bed but pays no attention to it. He also has a cushion from a old sofa i had, which he does sometimes sleep on, but its still fairly hard.
So what do you guys think, is it callouses? I know you cant really tell without pics, and i'm at the vets with him today for his booster so will ask her to check. Im just impatient and wanted to know now!
