    Default It's always something

    So because I am going to be away this weekend, Frankie has a tail irritation. I noticed that for the last couple of days he was scooting on the deck outside. I figured I would take him in to have his glands done when I got back from the weekend. Well last night he looked very uncomfortable to me so I grabbed a baby wipe (which I always do for him because he has a very tight piggy tail) and when I wiped him, I noticed a red sore on the underside of his tail. I don't think he has a tail pocket because when I feel back there, it feels normal. So last night I cleaned it as best I could and put antibiotic ointment on it. This morning I was reading a similar thread and someone suggested witch hazel. I cleaned it with that this morning and I am going to buy desitin on my lunch hour. Any other suggestions?? Do you think maybe it just got wet and I didn't dry it good enough when he was playing outside in the water??? I don't like when my baby is uncomfortable.

    Witch hazel is great for tail area cause it is self drying..... I think the onitment is fine... not sure the desitin will do anything unless it is a rash type sore. no pictue?

    I'm sorry you're going through this with Frankie, these guys are so sensitive. I don't have any experience with this, but from reading others posts on this, it sounds like you're doing everything right to clear it up. I also heard that Sudo cream is a really good cream for dogs. We did use it on my Grandson when he was 2 years old and had Roto Virus, which causes severe diarrhea and his butt was so sore. It worked really well and cleared up his bum. Before the cream, his bum looked like it had gotten sunburned and he was so uncomfortable. We had tried Penaten cream, Vaseline for a barrier, Desitin, but nothing cleared it up like the Sudo Cream.

    Gold Bond works good for keeping it dry.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I will look for the Sudo cream. I just feel bad for him because I doubt he will let my son clean his coolie the way he lets mama do it.

    Oh man, it's always something… I use the witch hazel as well, and the ointment will keep it from getting irritated.

    I have been using the witch hazel and it seems much better. No more blood on the towel and he isnt scooting as much. I am going to continue to clean ot twice a day
    Especially before he goes to bed.
