I can't imagine what is causing this. Do any of your labs have this? Is this something i should take him to the vet for?

Nothing to worry about ... its is normal.

Since then I've been putting "Utter Bag Balm" on his elbows. It's the stuff for cows. It's available lots of places. It makes the area smooth and really reduces the roughness. I use it as a hand cream when I need more than the regular stuff. A little on the sticky side but it works in and makes rough skin better. Never thought I'd be using the same cosmetic as my dog...
I was told the scaly elbows are from concrete, hard floors, etc. Perry is a pampered, loved, inside guy. Sleeps on the bed. Not much rough surface laying down for him but his elbows still patched over. The vet said it is common in older large dogs.

Good to hear that it isn't a sign of anything bad. Thanks for the replies!
