I noticed that Norman has small bald spots near his elbows about the size of a nickle that is kind of rough in texture. Is this a callous? Also, will the hair ever grow back? Let me know. Norman has chewed up his last $50.00 bed, and we wanted to wait until he grew up a little before we got him another one. I just hope these callouses will heal and have his hair back. It’s super hard to notice, but I rub and pet him often.
What Norman has are callouses. This is quite common for the large, heavy breeds when they do not have a smooth soft surface to lie on. My suggestion would be to get him a heavy duty indoor/outdoor carpet as a sleeping/resting spot. This will solve the problem. In the meantime, you may want to rub the callous areas with either petroleum jelly or some other sort of moisturizing salve. This will speed up the healing process and his hair will grow back. Keep up the great work you have being doing with this gorgeous Tibetan and do contact me with any other questions you may have. I am here to assist you.
