    Default Orion's tail pocket

    It's not infected...but it's itching her something fierce. Actually....it could be a little infected, I've looked and it's red. What is something that will give her relief immediately? But will not cause more yeast to grow? We've done the malaket....which she loves. She wants me to keep doing them...because it's an itch she can't get too. I do them...and it obviously feels good to her, but it's causing more irritation because I'm putting my finger in a very very tight spot! Her itchy spot is on the side of the tail. She is throwing herself around the room because her pocket is itching. I'm a bad mom and I gave her a tramadol hoping to help relieve the itch/pain. We already give her benedryl and she got her last dose at 8pm.


    Suggestions?

    Please and thank you. (actually...she is on the floor snoring like crazy. Maybe the tramadol did a little to help her relax)

    Tramadol sounds a bit heavy for an itch, but it did work, kind of. Have you tried Desitin?

    Witch hazel.... Or desitin/monkeybutt...

    I also had this powder our vet gave us cause Banks had this happen a lot....neo-Predef which worked great.

    Hi Cheryl, I don't have any experience with tail pockets, as my guys don't have one, I just wanted to send hugs to Orion, I hope she feels better. Have you tried putting some Polysporin or Neo sporting on the irritated area? It might help if there is a little infection.

    Malacteic Ultra Otic. The Ultra has hydrocortisone in it to help stop the itch. Wellie gets itchy ears and it works on him.

    I agree w/the witch hazel or monkey butt. I have the malecetic wipes, but ALL my dogs hate the smell and I have to chase them down… Lol

    Mine hate the smell of it too. I really wish they came out with a new fragrance, it's supposed to be peach I think?? lol..
    I only use the Ultra for when they're itching- like Wellie's ears.

    She loves loves loves the malaket! So the witch hazel kind it does the same thing correct? I'm worried about putting something inside that tight area and it not drying out, creating more of a mess.

    Yes, the tramadol was a little heavy duty for an itch. But I wasn't sure if it was just an itch or if it was sore.

    Tramadol isn't a narcotic. It just recently got moved to a scheduled drug, which most of the medical world thinks is ridiculous. It works really well for pets.

    The witch hazel is a natural astringent… it should help heal the infection, but not dry out the area too much. If it's super dry in there then I guess the diaper ointment may be the best choice. I think Wally has an issue too, he snapped at me last night. I guess I know what we are both doing today…

    Poor Orion. My boys dint have tail pockets but frankie has a tight cork screw tail and "stuff" gets stuck behind it. He gets super itchy if debris gets in the hairs on the flat side his tail.
