    kex, this is no joke.

    I am no expert here, but looking at the image, I would strongly suggest you to bring him to see a doctor (doctor thats specialist in animals).

    Just in case the infection spread to other part of the body.
    War is one of the most regrettable human activities.

    Which part of the leg?

    Is it the part where he always uses to prop himself up?

    Hmmm looks like a pretty bad sign of "rotting" . better take him to the vet soon.

    Could it be this fungal infection? Some shy chap asked me to post this link above on his behalf. Better bring to vet soon. May he get well. It's infectious, so do take action fast.

    Depends on where it is. Hair loss and thickening/ crusting of the skin will occur on places where the body is frequently in contact with rough and hard surfaces. This might be on the elbow and even on the knuckles and over the hip. It's called a pressure sore or kennel sore. Technically, such things are perhaps called calluses. I doubt if it's infectious. Please feel free to provide any other pictures or details, or ask more questions. Try to give you a free consult.
