    Default Best butt flushes

    What's the best butt flush I can get? I'm sure I'll have to order it online so any advice is greatly appreciated. I wipe him with witch hazel but I'm trying to go a little longer between their baths. Plus he has a tight pocket so any preventatives are great. Thanks in advance for all your help!

    I use a couple hypoallergenic baby wipes first then follow it up with mal-a-ket wipes. That's been my routine a couple times a week with Samson for 6 years and we've never had any issues with his tail pocket. You can order mal-a-ket wipes online from a variety of different sites.

    Banks has a very tight tail with a pocket.... we bathe her maybe twice a year. But on a daily basis, we wipe her with unscented bay wipes and use witch hazel every other day

    I just use witch hazel on a square or round cotton pad in the pocket. When it looks extra icky I use the mal-a-ket wipes. Those are great. I use them on his paws too. I gave Bruin a bath a couple weeks ago and I forgot to dry his pocket :shhhh: (I know, I get the bad mom award on that one), so a couple days goes by and i go to clean his pocket and it was just brown ickyness in there (my poor bru bru ) I cleaned it out with dry cotton pads then used the mal-a-ket wipes until they weren't coming out brown anymore and followed with 2 more days of once in the morning and once at night and it was all better. Back to using just witch hazel.

    I used the unscented baby wipes regularly and it seems to keep the "yuckies" at bay. Sounds like those Mal-a-Ket wipes are worth a try though.

    I think one of the best pieces of advice I have gotten in the forum is about Mal-A-Ket wipes! I have used them on Mabel's belly for a chronic yeast infection and have seen her skin change drastically to soft, smooth skin from skin that was rough and scaly. I think it's even fading the black discoloration! I use it in her tail pocket about once a week, dry with gauze, and apply Gold Bond medicated powder. So far so good! Mal-A-Ket wipes will always be in my bully beauty kit!

    We just use unscented baby wipes for Bacon but he doesn't have a particularly deep tail pocket, the only time we had an issue was when we were on vacation at the beach and didn't realize there was sand in there.

    Thank you everyone, I already keep a container of witch hazel wipes that I use to wipe them down with so that'll do for now until I find a good flush that I can stick up under his tail to clean it out.

    That's what I originally thought too! I was wondering exactly what I had gotten myself into with this breed! That is something the rescue organization left out of the information!!!
