    We use baby wipes on Silva usually once a day. She is our $2000 butt! She has had issues with anal glands and severe infections, she has had 2 minor surgeries! The Vet said its because of her tight corked screw tail! He has also recommended amputation but putting her under scares me so bad! We just try to keep it clean and monitor it! Stella on the other hand has a tail like a lab (but shorter) that sticks out so no worries there! lol

    Gracie has a tight corkscrew piggy tail, but it never seems to get dirty. Just her bath and occasional in between wiping with baby wipes is all she needs. I think we lucked out with her.

    How much did the amputation cost? Our dog, Nico, has been plagued with terrible chronic tail pocket infections. Our vet told us it was an elaborate surgery, but I'm not sure what the approx. cost would be. I would love to be able to help him get rib of this problem. I know it causes him a lot of pain.

    Wilson and Emma's tail pockets don't seem to get too dirty at all. I think I clean them once a week and just use a cotton ball and wipe around, dry with another cotton ball and then wipe again with another cotton ball with some Witch Hazel on it. Neither has a deep pocket but Emma's is quite tight due to the bend of her tail right there.
