Another pad?

Hi, looking at Dazy's foot/leg last night it appears she has what looks like a new pad or callus formed on her leg, just below the "elbow" joint, about 3 inches away from her top most pad. 1 leg only. Could this be a pad? Is that what a callus looks like? It looks like her other pads, not red or sore, you can touch it and move it a bit like herother pads, no hair growth, basically looks like a pad.

Would you take your dog to the vet? I dont feel like I absolutly have to but I like side with caution. What do you guys think?

It sounds like a calus to me, but I could be wrong.. one of my other dogs use to get caluses from lieing on the ground.. it never bother her so we left it alone.

can you post a picture of it??

I really think that's what it is too, and I have been watching her get up and down from naps or laying around, and she uses that leg to push herself up and tends to sleep on that side of her body. Intersting what you learn when you watch them. :D

I will take a pic and post it.
