Dog elbow callus cream can be a good way to manage calluses on dog elbow and hock joints.
We say manage because it is not guaranteed to remove the callus, but can certainly help moisturise, soften and add minerals to the callus skin.
Whilst dry and clean calluses are usually nothing to worry about, if the callus is bleeding, oozing or inflamed, these could be signs of infection and might mean its time to see a vet.
Let’s check out the dog elbow creams and moisturisers available!

Dog Elbow Callus Cream: What To Know, & Best Options
What Is Dog Elbow Cream?
Dog elbow cream is a cream, similar to moisturiser, that is usually applied to the skin on the elbow.
What Is Dog Elbow Cream Used For?
Dog elbow cream, depending on the product, usually serves two main purposes:
- To deliver moisture back to the skin
- To heal and deliver minerals to the skin to make it healthier
It can help protect, repair, restore and soften skin on a dog’s elbows.
Vitamins, oils and beneficial natural ingredients are usually the ways in which they achieve this.
How To Apply Dog Elbow Cream
Dog elbow cream is usually pretty easy to apply.
It’s usually a matter of applying a dab of cream, evenly massaging it into the skin, and making sure it absorbs (so your dog can’t lick it).
Creams should have application instructions on the label and packaging.
Types of Dog Elbow Cream
Like with any skin product for your dog or pet, look for non-toxic, natural and organic dog elbow creams and moisturisers.
These sorts of products usually decrease the risk of irritating your dog’s skin, putting something harmful on it, and sometimes cut the risk of allergies too.
Natural ingredients usually come with some great natural benefits too which synthetic ingredients can’t provide.

Looking For USDA Organic Certified Dog Elbow Products?
Although these balms are stated for use on noses, there’s no reason they can’t be used on elbow skin and unbroken calluses too.
Check with your vet prior if you are unsure.
Balms and waxes have a different consistency to creams, but most of them are odorless, which can help with not encouraging dogs who like to lick.
