    Default FAQ: Bulldog Tail Pockets: What is your secret?

    Please post your tail pocket cleaning routine here!



    I use witch hazel to clean it out, then I dry it out with a paper towel. I then follow up with Malecetic Otic if it is already clean and looking good. Just a squirt of it on a baby wipe. I only clean them once every few days to even a week.

    If it's bad, I use cotton ball soaked in Malacetic Otic "ULTRA". I will clean it daily until it's good again, but it usually is better within a few days.

    I only have one bully with a deep tail pocket and the older she gets the deeper it gets.

    For Tate, my only "routine" is to take a soft tissue and "really get in there" to get all the gunk and debris out; i do this about twice a day and he seems like he's in some "nirvana" when i do this to him--he loves it! For Finn, b/c he's had a recurrent tail infection, I use a duoxo + climbazole mousse that I got from the Vet the other day. I just apply some on my fingers and rub into his tail pocket once a day and let it air dry.

    We use duoxo pads once a week to clean it out. Buster's pocket isnt very deep at all just collects a bunch of hair.

    Roger does the same, when I am cleaning it with a baby wipe he makes very quiet snorting and his tongue keeps going in and out.

    Well now, both Amber and Ruby have tight cork screw tails with deep tail pockets. I have several items for this process: diapers, foot powder, a baby suction nose bulb, water pik, Malecetic Otic, witch hazel, peroxide, and japanese cream. I don't use all of this all the time but the tail pockets get cleaned twice a week: once a week, usually on Saturday, I fill up the water pik and take them outside and we clean the tail pocket out with the water pik. They both love it, I think the shot of warm water up there is invigorating to them because they get really spunky afterwards. Then I take the malecetic otic and put that on a diaper and run that under the tail and into the tail pocket to get anything left out plus dry it out as good as possible. Once I have that done I take the baby suction nose bulb which is filled with lotrimin foot powder and I stick that into the tail pocket and powder it down really good. Neither Amber or Ruby has any problems with their tail pockets but we stay on them; if I see any irritation then I use the japanese cream which is an anti-fugal cream that works like magic. We keep that around the house for the whole family to use.

    I buy baby wipes, rinse them all with water and then lay them out in bundles to dry over a day or two. Then I place them in the wipes container and wet them down with either witch hazel or rubbing alcohol (current batch) and grab one and clean them up every day. Regular baby wipes don't provide the drying action their little bully tushies need but these do and it is never an ordeal to clean them since I always have them handy.

    Harlea doesn't have a gay tail per se but hers is straight and flat, so she doesn't have much of a tail pocket to begin with but we clean what she does have during her nightly wipe down with baby wipes and once a week with a Duoxo pad. She loves it.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Witch hazel on cotton square or presoaked witch hazel wipes. Brie doesn't have much of a pocket so I clean it 1-2 times a week unless more is needed. I do have the medicated pads for cleaning folds etc which I will use every so often w her tail.
