    Stephanie, sorry, just catching up with this post about Tubby's tail pocket. Finn has this problem currently; he's on his 2nd round of antibiotics. It sounds like you are being very proactive with treating him before it gets worse. I on the other hand thought i was doing it right but applying some antibiotic ointment to the area but it only made things worse and he was eventually placed on steroids + oral antibiotics. The advice you got sounds good but if after a few days you notice it not improving or worsening, take Tubby to the vet (not the one you mentioned tho!), b/c he may need something stronger. I hope he gets better soon!

    There's also a product called Hibiclens (you can get it at any drugstore) that contains Chlorhexidene. I've never tried it but I know others here have. It works the same way.

    Mal-a-ket (amazon takes you to an external link): http://www.amazon.com/Mal-A-Ket-Wipe...ywords=malaket
    Duoxo pads: http://www.amazon.com/Douxo-Chlorhex..._petsupplies_2

    Both work on yeast, just a matter of preference.
    I have used the Hibiclens and it works great as a matter of fact when I give Sheldon a bath I mix a little in with his Shampoo so it gets every where

    I use witch hazel on Jenna's tail pocket...then either some desitin cream or gold bond powder...i agree with the above and wouldn't use the desitin or powder until you notice some change/healing....maybe that will get you through until you can see the vet you prefer if necessary

    We'll never thought I'd say this but Canada sucks!!! All of the products listed are unavailable here and apparently anything with chlorahmexidine requires a prescription.
    I found the bully vet specialist in Toronto so I'm gonna give them a ring and see if they can guide to something. Thank you for your input tubby, me and his tush are very grateful

    @TubbysMom Witch Hazel does not kill yeast. It's good for cleaning because of it's self drying properties, but you need something else for the infection. I'm really surprised you need a script for this stuff.. wow.. But if that's what you need, get to a vet immediately. You don't want it getting worse.

    I msged one of the other members on here that live in the same city ish as us and she said I could get chlorhexidine solution at wal mart so I'm off to check there. If not Tubbs is off to our friends vet. They have a bully too.

    Seems good. I've been cleaning it. Can't find anything with chlorhexidine but I have cleaned it with witch hazel and put some canestean on it and it looks great. The smells gone too which is great. Worst part of it is for me having to talk to the pharmacists telling them that it's for my dog not me LOL all 3 pharmacists I've talked to have asked has he gone to the vet and I automatically respond no I know what I'm dong albeit thanks to my EBN family
