    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)
