"Leo" has been with us a week now, and is loving his new home. He has made his place in the pack, though I still think he and Casey are battling for second lol. I am wondering how I can treat his "kennel elbows", which is what I call the callouses that he has from the concrete floors. He is a lab/pit mix, so very large. Should I just let them heal on their own, or should I get some salve or something for them. I saw some "Doggy Balm" at the pet store, but wasn't sure if I should do anything. The other issue is two small bald spots on the base of his tail. It doesn't look like mange, more like it was caused by nervous chewing. How can I tell exactly what it is? I can't go to the vet yet as hubby just started his new job. I don't want to aggravate the area, but again, wonder if I should do something for the spots. Any help/advice is greatly appreciated thanks!
