    Um question...... I've looked and watched the video. Do all EBD have this pocket? I can't find it on Dooley. Is it possible he does not have one?

    The "tail pocket" is the area around their tails. Their tails are kinda like "inny" belly buttons, there's an area inside where their tail is that accumulates fur and can get infected because its such a tight area. You have to clean that area out with wipes and pull the fur out. Believe me, you want to make sure you do this because it can get infected and not only stink to high heaven but also can get so bad surgery is needed. Does this help at all? I have to use two fingers to get in there to pull the fur out, its a very tight enclosure.

    Ok...I still feel stupid. I don't see or feel a pocket? This is Brie's tail..

    Jenna also has a tail pocket...she's not thrilled but does tolerate cleaning...i use baby wipes, then pads with witch hazel and will put some destin in the pocket if she seems itchy...seems to work for her...if you have trouble getting in the pocket good maybe a q-tip would work

    Emma has a very tight tail and it has a sharp bend right at the beginning of it that curves directly into her tail pocket. You'll notice that the section of her tail goes off to the side and her bum hole shows. She can't her tail at all because of the bend but she tries and sometimes the part that goes off to the side will move. When I first tried to check her tail pocket when she was little I wasn't aware how tight it was. She yelped and I backed off. I've learned how to clean her now (which luckily for her she stays really clean and dry there). I go in at the side with my index finger and I sorta scoop the tip of my finger in a curving motion and gently press down on her back end and I continue light pressure keeping my finger curved and slide it to the other side. This allows me to get in there without hurting her. When I had her spayed I had her vet give her a good check as I was a bit concerned as she got older and her tail grew that it would cause some problems for her. So far so good though. Emma doesn't like it either but she's learned to tolerate it and lets me get in there.

    Here's Emma's tail that I just took.

    Also, when I bathe here I do so in the bathtub. I put the the shower head setting on a power section to rinse her out well. Don't want any shampoo to be left behind.

    Bacon has a tail pocket that is under his tail, we wipe it out with baby wipes ever once in awhile and if it ever gets irritated we use witch hazel in there so there is no moisture left behind.
