After doing some research,it appears that Jagger has hygromas on his front legs.They dont bother him at all,but they.are unsightly.He has a soft bed to lay on while inside,guess Ill have to put one outside also.Have any of yall dealt with this before?

I had never heard of hygromas, so I had to google it! If that's what it is, it sounds like it isn't painful and getting an additional bed would help.

Interesting. I've never heard of it. I knew that the calluses that dogs get are from the bone hitting hard surfaces, but I've never seen or heard of the hygromas.
