    This sounds very similar to what Gio's tail used to look like, I will post a picture of his tail from before he got it amputated. The screw tail was just his tail in a tight spiral inside of him, it wasn't a straight tail. I order those wipes from Amazon but I'm sure Petsmart has something similar, my vet has those wipes as well so maybe your vet carries them? For now I would clean his tail with a wipe or dry cloth with some baby powder on it. Try not to use something that will irritate Kimbo since he may have an infection. I would definitely try to take him to the vet soon. Hope he is feeling better!! And if you have a picture of his tail please post it.


    You can't tell from the picture but his tail pocket was a full finger deep, so when I cleaned it I would really have to get in there and make sure I cleaned the whole pocket.

    @KimboAndSean have you checked into Credit Care? I have never used it, but several peeps here have and they say it's wonderful. If I remember correctly it was like $800.00 for Lucy. We don't have insurance either so we just bit the bullet.

    some tails do loose hair, especially over time. If hair is coming out in clumps your pooch has a bacteria problem, an antibacterial soap lathered up and deep in there ,will clean it for one time, it should be done on a daily bases until you get this thing under control

    I would wash with a hand soap or Dial soap & warm water. rinse and dry really good. Do this everyday until it gets better, then only every couple of days when it gets better. Ingrown tails are a bacterial breeding ground for germs, your poor pooch can't clean this area. They depend on you to keep it at it's best.
    Please keep us posted
