    My Bella has the biggest tail pocket, which is even painful to clean. I thought this was not common in bully's until I read Thai! Thank u

    We found out the hard way with Boris when he got an infection. We had been cleaning under the tail and around the anus daily but didn't know there was a pocket and his is deep. Since his infection in November, we've been using medicated wipes. He's such a good boy and lays down to let me clean him. No issues since then but I feel horrible that he got an infection.

    From what I very recently discovered, Dr.'s will refer to the wrinkle OVER the tail as a tail pocket also. My dog had a corkscrew tail and the wrinkle over his tail was so deep you can insert your finger up to your second knuckle.....very deep pocket and highly prone to infection. He had over a 2 inch corkscrew tail that you could only see the very tip of. The pocket and tail are completely gone now.

    Thank you for this! Brutus has a deep tail pocket and i cleaned it last night and a bunch of hair and grossness came out. I'm going to have to clean it daily.

    Thank you!!! i feel awful that i had NO idea this even existed!! I finally found one on our bully puppy after reading this and pulled a bunch of (thankfully dry) hair out of it. I hope it isn't too deep, and I'm still slightly afraid to explore it more (esp after his confused reaction...), but I will! Any advice is appreciated!!
