    Default Smelly Tale

    Hi Everyone! so for the past 2-3 weeks i have noticed a foul odor coming from Rocky's tale , i don't notice all the time, but when i do, oh my goodness, i always wipe him when he poops, and it looks clean, i'm afraid it could be under his tail? What should i do?

    are you wiping his butt or cleaning his tail pocket? if he has a deep tail pocket you need to clean it or it can get infected

    My vet showed me Izzy's tail pocket because I was afraid to hurt here trying to find it! Her tail is very tight too... I bought gauze and a solution that the vet gave me and I wipe it once a week. The gauze usually comes out with a brownish color and some long hair on it (probably the hair that falls around her tail area).

    I am also a new bully mom but according to many posts in here when they hide or complain when you clean them is because they might have a yeast infection in there due to the dirt and moist that is trapt in the area, that's why it is important to keep it clean.

    I had a girl who had an infection in her tail pocket and the vet that I had taken her to said first things first, and antibiotic and second was warm water with medicated shampoo and allowing her to just sit for a few minutes on her butt. Warm water helped soothe it and by gently placing your hand back there with more medicated shampoo and just sudzing the water a whole bunch to get affected area really well. Dry it really good by patting it and if at all possible depending on how badly it is infected to just move it a little to allow air to get in their. She had me do this daily and the results of doing so per the vet were amazing. The vet said keeping it dry was the key but keeping it clean was also a key factor as well.

    You might take her to the vet as she may have an infection in her tail pocket. While there, have your vet show you how the clean it.

    in my experience with Diesel, his tail pocket doesn't have an odor so because you poor baby has an odor I would think maybe he needs to be checked by his vet just to be sure, and like was said above, have your vet show you how to really get in there and clean the tail pocket, it's so important to make sure its done correctly and regularly. hope all goes well, keep us posted.

    agree with @bulldogs4me i would also ask your vet for a solution that wont leave the area moist. I used to clean it with wipes but soon learned that it was no good because leaving any humidity will increase the chance of an infection.

    Izzy's tail pocket is impossible to see... I can only put my finger in there and rub gently with the gauze. I also get a lot of hair coming out ... and like I said on my previous post if dirty the gauze get a brownish color but it usually doesnt smell much.

    Funny thing on my baby is the way she acts when I clean it! Actually this would be a great topic for a new thread!
