    Default Oh Joe .... Tail pocket ?

    So I got home this afternoon from a meeting ... And there Joe is scooting on the carpet and there was blood! He wouldn't let me look at it. I called the vet and they let me come right in. I felt like I was hitting the panic button but he wouldn't let me near him. So the vet took a look and did some tests and said its either his tail pocket that was causing him to scoot or he might have a tumor . He did feel a lump inside the rectal area while checking Joe out. He said he doesn't want to do an X-ray yet but see how Joe does with some ointment for his tail pocket .. He said some Bulldogs have bone in the rectal area and the bump could be bone. Has anyone else heard of this?

    I just cleaned his tail pocket with the malcetic wipes and put the ointment on. I'm really hoping it's just his tail pocket but it seemed okay when I cleaned it. Poor bud also has an ear infection which I have been treating for a week .. Say a little prayer for my bud please and thanks

    Aww damn
    not too long ago mine had a terrible tail pocket infection, or a terrible tail sprain (depending on which vet you spoke to).
    I think it was a tail pocket infection since after it was cleaned out well, he started to feel better.

    Allergies are absolutely horrible in the northeast right now, so I wouldn't be surprised if his tail is infected. Especially since his ears are too.

    I bet his tail pocket is just sore. Poor guy. Tyson gets his red & inflamed from time to time, even though I constantly clean it! I apply some destin and within a day or so its back to normal. But his eyes, paws, all are a mess now. Damn you allergies, damn you.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    my rocky had a bad tail pocket infection when i rescued him.. also a bad ear infection.. my vet put some medicine in his ear that is like a real heavy syrup thickness.. she had to heat it first to get it in and told me not to touch it for 7 days.. it was great because i didnt have to pester him everyday to clean it.. worked great.. although the tail pocket infection did not.. we tried 3 rounds of antibiotics and cleanings daily.. its been a week since his tail amputation surgery and hes doing really great.. he is only 1 year old and acts like hes a 3 month old puppy.. we fell in love with the poor guy the minute we seen him and new we had to rescue this poor guy.. now he can get on with the life and enjoy it better.. hope joe feels better soon... it awful to have our fur babies uncomfortable..

    Hey sorry .. Yesterday was a crazy day. Joe seems to be doing much better.. He let me clean his tail pocket and put the ointment in. He hasn't had anymore bleeding. I think @nycbullymama is right .. Allergies are crazy right now . I think it's playing a huge part.
    This is the first time in 8 years that Joe has ever has a big issue with his tail pocket. He has always let me clean it without an issue. I also occasionally use desitin when it seems a little irritated.
    This year was also the first time he has an ear infection. I'm wondering if his age also plays a factor?
    On side note the Vet said to me " you know how many vacations a vet takes a year by how many Bulldogs are in their care. The more Bulldogs the more vacations they can afford". I didn't find it very funny at the time .. Lol

    Let me tell you - Tyson was the picture of health since we got him. Once he hit 8 yrs, all the problems started. Allergies, prostate, etc. Thank God that we have gotten through it all, but the allergies/stomach part is something we have deal with and manage every single day now. I'm so glad that Joe is feeling better!!

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Oh man, do I HATE when they say this! Even a country vet who has her hand up in cow a***s most of the days, through that line at me. And I know that in the area we live in are just a couple of bullys. We were there twice at once...the first and the last time...

    From now on when vet go to a vet I'm wearing my "I love my bulldog" -shirt, just if that makes them think even a little about -i_love_my_bulldog_1-jpgwhat they say...

    Glad Joe is doing better.
