Dog Elbow Hydroma
Standard Length Adjustable Dog Elbow Support by DogLeggs
Dog elbow hydroma's, are the bane of many large breed dogs. The classical presentation
of the “elbow hygroma,” the body’s response to chronic trauma to the point of
the dogs elbow, is a fluid-filled swelling at the point of one or both canine
In more common terms, the dog is lying down on a hard surface and the point
of the elbow bone is traumatizing the soft tissue covering it. Normally a callus
will develop to protect a bony prominence, such as the elbow, but if the trauma
to the area is excessive, the inflammation caused by the trauma overcomes the
new callus and a fluid pocket forms.
The Standard Length Adjustable DogLeggs are the perfect solution to provide
some relief to your dogs elbows. Standard Length Adjustable DogLeggs provide
three-way adjustment of the garment:
1. adjustment around the leg at point of your dogs elbow
2. adjustment around leg below point of your dogs elbow
3. adjustment, over the back, accros the top of your dogs shoulders..
