Hi!  Never heard of that ointment, but found a web site for you.

http://handicappedpets.com/acc/leggings/#hy

or

http://www.dogleggs.com/index.cfm

Whatever you do, don't let your vet drain it!
It can get infected.  Other mastiff owners suggest it takes anywhere up to 6 months for it to go away.
Does Titan like to sleep on the hard tile floor for the cold?
Hygromas are caused from the elbow hitting the ground hard.
Is it possible for him to sleep on a foamy or something soft?
So far (crossing fingers) Beau has not gotten any.  Luke (being more mature) likes to slide down to his sleeping position.
Oh, and massaging it is supposed to help.

i looked into those leggs and they look wonderful. Titan is on rug at all time, i know it says that they come over time..but, it was first noticd once we went to a dog show in NY and it was a cement floor, and for some reason he slammed down on it...usually he will sit and slowly go down.  Because he has been having freedom issues (attacking others) we have been putting him in his crate, and it seems to be getting worse by the minute.  I am putting arnicare (arnica) on his elbow now to help the swelling go down, it did work last time, but (i kept forgetting  :-\) i believe it must be hurting him now.  When i put the gel on him, he will stop panting, hold absolutley still...in statue mode we call it, he actually holds his breath too.  I would love toget the leggs, and VPI pet insurence covers them, although i only have VPI for the great dane.  I wish the vet would lie and say that Jazmine has it then we would be good!!!
