I was wondering if anyone knew what this lump was on my dogs leg? It's not hard and doesn't hurt him when touched but naturally I have the worst going through my head!

I have seen this on a relative's dog (but relative refuses to take him to the vets). I took the dog to a free checkup in the park, and they said take him to a real vet.

I think this is an overgrowth of skin on the elbow caused by lying on laminate/tiles. It's a pressure point, so like a callus, except it's not hard skin, because it's on the elbow and possibly the elbow doesn't know how to grow hard skin - I don't know though. If either dogs were mine, I'd take them to the vet.

I think with bumps that can be something or nothing but until the vet checks them over you won't know which.

My lab has hard patches from lying on the floor and the don't look like that. You need to ask your vet.
