    Sorry for the delay, I had a crappy arse day! I'm dropping Emma off at the vet tomorrow so he can check her out. They'll probably have to either pin her down or give her a mild sedation I'm sure to really get in there and look. I wiped it when I got home this evening, well I pressed some tissue down and it's stuff comes out with a bit of blood and yellow goop on the tissue, like puss would be from a blister. I'll report back as soon as I find out anything. Thank you all and sorry if I come across pissy right now.

    Her look is deceiving. lol She growled and put her hair up at a very large docile black lab that was in there. She is not pet friendly to other but her own pack. She stayed under my feet and gave all that stink eye look if they dared got too close.

    Hi! I am new here and by no means and expert cause I just got my first bully however he is only 16-17 weeks old and has a tail pocket infection. We are treating this right now with anibiotics, a soap that the vet gave us to cleanse it with and we were told to shave it which we did and its getting better! we are on day 2 of treatment since its came about on the weekend. The shaving really helps since it needs air. Hes so much better. We also use witch hazel to clean it, then desitin and once it dries completly up we'll use gold bond. Everything I am tellin you I found out here and started it before I went to the vet. Except the antibiotics of course but I am guessing you just need to take the dog in. You'll need the other stuff too but you can try it for a day and see if its better first anyway. Good luck I know other will help they told me to search the fourms for tail pockets!

    Hello there Marty and welcome to EBN! I took her in to the vet today and just got home. Does Bear have a tight tail pocket?

    Ok, here's the skinny. Emma has a bad tail infection. Her vet put her on Cefpodoxime (oral) twice daily. He's going to follow up with me when that prescription is done in two weeks to see how she is doing. At that time, if she's not healing up, tail amputation was brought up as a last resort but it was mentioned. I'm not too surprised by that because I've always thought it could happen to her with the way her tail is. It's a wicked bend inward right toward her body. He didn't mention shaving but I'm going to shave her anyway I think. He has a double coat of fur and ti's very thick. I'm always digging in there and pulling out the fur that collects. He did say that I'm doing a great job on her but I do feel that I could have done better. Not beating myself up but......I do feel partially responsible.

    I'll also keep her clean with witch hazel twice daily.

    I'll keep everyone
