    Wipe out pocket with 1/8 apple cider vinegar per 7/8 water. Clean area until all of the brown stuff is gone.

    But some malacetic ultra off amazon. Wet down a cotton ball with the malacetic ultra and stick it inside of pocket, working it around as much as possible. Make sure it has plenty on it.

    Allow to dry out on its own, the malecetic has its own drying agent in it.

    Once you get the pocket under control after several days of this, i would repeat it for 3 more days once you have a clean wipe. Then switch to a milder cleanser like witch hazel. Follow up with gold bond powder. You may never have an issue again.

    Absolutely but I wouldn't put the gold bond in there.... Too close to the nose! Ewww the thought if having that stuff next to my nose all day would freak me out. I would only use a drying cleanser. Like malacetic otic (not ultra), douxo, witch hazel....

    Update: her tail is still brown when I clean it but not gunky or as bad as it was a few days ago. It doesn't smell like death anymore but more of a metalicky smell. She's starting to not really want me back there so It must be getting sensitive.

    What are you using exactly? Metallic could be dried blood...

    Great news! Tonights cleaning resulted in no gunk, no bleeding, and no yelps! Her tail has actually started poking out a little bit which has made cleanings much easier! Thanks for all the help! So blessed to have found this site!

    Using Duoxo pads (as mentioned previous by Caspar) and the Duoxo Shampoo that goes with them, Bea's tail pocket is in tip top shape always! I've tried everything imaginable and this combo is the very best for her. I even found some "mousse" of that formulation from Duoxo and I put an extra little puff on the pad before we go in there to clean. Bea's tail pocket is deep! You could park a Cadillac in there! So it really needs effective -- not constant -- attention.

    Because I've been cleaning her pocket since she was a pup, she's very used to it and it's not a problem to do.

    Bo's "tail crease" (area between butt and tail) is a similar story. He loves to have his tail "medicine" and will follow me into the laundry room for "treatment". It gets dry and itchy down there. A quick babywipe clean and some salve (Desitin or anti itch cream) and he's a happy guy.

    I have desitin as well and I have also noticed since I started cleaning Sheldon's tail pocket he doesn't whine trying to reach his but trying to lick it or scoot anymore he seems to be pretty comfortable.

    Love has a name and its name is Sheldon!!!<3

    I use witch hazel on my boys tail pocket everyday. I just bought a bottle from the drug store and use circular cotton pads. If there is irritation I will mix polysporin & destin to get rid of the redness and keep him dry. When his tail pocket was really irritated I would also use some gold bond. Make sure to remove any loose hair from the area as well.

    Banks needs this done daily, but I noticed since switching to Fromm Pork-n-Peas... It is much cleaner it still needed. she HATES it but we use unscientific baby wipes or witch hazel to clean her
