We Took Poor Niko To The Vet Too!! She Has An Infected Elbow Sore

Hey! So they say bad luck comes in 3s! We're wrapping Milo up in a bubblewrap swaddle and putting him in the baby carrier attached to us 24/7 haha. We get a few comments about both Phil and Niko and the red patches on the fur on their legs. This is hard skin from where they lie down and typically lower themselves down on one side. Having been concerned in the past ourselves we did our research and its common and normal for this patch of hard skin to occur just like ours on knees and elbows. On Niko however it has been repeatedly worn too much on hard surfaces and has split, become irritated and now infected. Niko is allowed to sleep on the carpet, heck even get on the couch if she wanted to but both of the dogs favour the cold hard floors. We've put down the cooling mats that were sent to inside as we were using these outside, these have a little give to them being a gel mat so that will be better for Niko. Both dogs have had numerous dog beds time and time again but they just don't like using them! For now, we will treat the infection with the medication provided and then try and keep on top of it with suitable moisturisers etc and further encourage a dog bed for Niko at least. The vet said once it happens its a regular reccurence so we'll try keep ahead of it! Niko is fine in herself we just caught her licking it thats how we initially found out. Phil has the same but relatively small in comparison a more normal looking size.
Niko doesn't like the vets as you can see unlike her brother who strangely loves them!
Thanks for watching guys, we'll keep you updated on both dogs as the days go on. Love from all the family xx

  • Try putting very small amount of coconut oil on it.(once wound is healed).It will keep the area soft. When that particular area becomes hard it leads to skin breaking. It's like same for humans when we are in cold weather and our skin dries up. It becomes more prone to injuries.

  • I have read an interesting theory about dog beds. When malamutes huddle together for warmth outside, the prized position is directly abutting the skin of the alpha male. The least popular dogs sleep on the edge of the dog huddle. Many dogs do not like the fact that the dog owner, who is supposed to act like the alpha male of the pack, sleeps high up on a mattress over box springs while they get assigned a small low bed on the floor. The dog is thinking "What did I do wrong? Why can't I sleep up high with my skin close to the skin of the alpha male?"

  • (Mallie input, 02c) That wound got bad quickly: fingers crossed for a rapid recovery, too. Dilute hypochlorous acid (Salvesan or similar) is the body's natural defence/healing system and dilute Hibiscrub to touch up/disinfect worked wonders here. Ongoing, the likes of Corona ointment (lanolin based) is good for softening and healing. Musher's secret (paw wax) also works for elbow calluses. Do keep an eye to ensure there's nothing else untoward, though, either longer term or during recovery (e.g. septic arthritis). . aside: on pills - Niko did well to eat dry pill but y'could try microwaving a few pieces of vintage cheddar (near zero lactose) and put the pill (in pieces, if required) inside some of those. Then, in the mouth 1,2,3,gone.... starting with an "unadulterated" piece. : ) Worked fine for 15+ pills/day here with a very fussy mal. . Kudos for getting to the vet asap & Best wishes to y'all. : )

  • My Mal had problems like this last year, they had to operate to cut it out as he had licked down three layers when it happened over night. - Burst pressure sore. He was same wouldn’t lay on a bed, brought so many, but just liked laying on cold floor. Bought another after it happened but still nope laid next to. He passed away this year age 9 😢 There are some neoprene elbow pads you can get, we tried but they slipped easily and didn’t stay in place so didn’t find them ideal. Worth a try though. Get well soon Niko! x

  • When giving pills I used to shove the tablet right inside in HALF a sausage. Give them that half while waving the other half in front of them - they will wolf the first half down to get to the second half... ... ... and the tablet will be gone!! 😂

  • We used to use either baby socks or an adult's sweat wrist band on our dog. The wrist bands are slightly bigger, thicker and stretchier... & wodge that cream in there!! A good thick covering on a CLEAN wound will help prevent infection. 😘

  • My Great Pyrennees Malamute mixes don't like the dog beds because they are to warm for them. So I put a cooling pad on one and got a crib mattress as another dog bed and just put a very thin fitted sheet in it. Now they sleep on them all the time. I saw in your unboxing video that you got the cool pads, so that may be an option for you. Maybe start with a yoga mat or camping pad with the cooling pad, then move to the thicker bed if they like the pads.

  • I HIGHLY recommend Vetericyn products!!! We've used them on dogs & cats. I prefer the Antibacterial Hydrogel. We had a dog with renal problems, sensitive skin, & neurotic. She was CONSTANTLY chewing at her paws, scratching at her neck, etc. Our vet recommended Vetericyn. I kid you not, within a week, if not less, her skin was normal! Worked for irritation from a tic, too. I've also been known to use it on myself! It's not cheap, but it's worth it imo. Cleans wounds, helps relieve itch/pain, safe for use with/ without bandages, & non-toxic. I bought mine on Amazon. Good-luck!

    • I had to check and its active ingredient is buffered Hypochlorous Acid (0.0120%). Thumbs up for that (on my own recommended list, with considerable medical backing for ~100 years and also kills COVID-19!). If you find you're using a lot, Salvesan/Solosan is pretty much identical at £20 for 5 litres.
