    It can happen to the best of bully moms. If he's sleeping well and not restless and pacing then he's not in any measureable pain. Just treat it using the advice you've been given here and try to be more watchful in the future. I bet it's happened to most of us (with tight-tail bullies)at least once. Live a learn. Your feeling guilty only serves to show how much you love him.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    first place I came to this morn sooooooooooooooooo, he did sleep ok last night but, though he's always had no issue with me cleaning that out (infact liked it) but!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this morning is having a royal, somewhat aggressive (NEVER an aggressive bone in his body) issue with me cleaning it... so! I cleaned out a bottle with a sort of pointy end to it so I can squirt stuff in there but want to make sure it doesn't hurt worse............and then, IF I can get it in, how to dry out now with this strength and attitude? I will go get more supplies today,,, but what I have as of now are....... betadine, chlorhexidine, malacetic wipes, medicated antibacterial and antifungal spray, vetericyn, and of course witch hazel other that the witch! which would be better for a quick squirt??? .... as of oils,,, I have peppermint, lavender, eucalyptus, and wintergreen. I've previously gotten from young living, and fine to do so but need to get the frankincense and other and I know that will take a bit. Helsonwheels, do you know of where ships fast? and good? My friend is a 'young living' distributer, bit that takes a while so though I can put in an order, it may not be fast enough... amazon??? and fractionated coconut oil??? I have the organic stuff but it's not liquid.... Thanks all!!!!!!!!!!! and thanks for the 'suggestion to not beat oneself up'... kinda hard huh ;( but appreciated!!!

    I asked my massage therapist. But you can order it online. It's basically a Thuja tree.... Arborvitae Trees*are evergreens from the cypress family. Easy to grow and maintain, they come in a variety of shapes and sizes, like the American*arborvitae tree*that is wide and cone shaped, while the pyramidalis, are skinnier. The globe*arborvitae*is a rounded shrub that will only grow to a few feet off the ground.

    do Terra sells it.

    I wouldn't use the witch hazel since it's astringent and may hurt. First try giving him a dry wipe to see if he will let you touch the area. If he will, then squirt in some malaseb or curaseb or chlorhexidine or betadine very dilute mixture from a spray bottle and then dry it with a paper towel and then spray on some antifungal antibacterial spray or put on antibiotic cream. If he won't let you touch the area at all you don't want to wet it, just spray on the antifungal antibacterial spray. My dog doesn't have a tail pocket so someone else may have a better suggestion. If he's getting worse by tomorrow I would buy him a muzzle and someone hold him while you do the cleaning and drying and creaming,

    Thank you so much,,,, again,,,, for this,,. I found that it's at least on the side so it was a bit easier to get to w/o having to get so pushy.. going to do another 'spray' of betadine shortly and head to bed.. He's ready. He acted much better today so hopefully tomorrow will be even better.. these guys are STRONG when they hurt! He's been better though that the first attempt.

    These bullies have an extremely high pain tolerance. My British bully bit off the top layer of my French bullies nose yesterday while they were playing ( while I was watching ). The nose bled for a couple of hours and the Frenchie didn't even flinch. I put a bit of coconut oil initially on it to clean it up but it's dried up today already. I didn't give either bully any anti inflammatory pain killers after their spaying because they were both throwing up that night and next morning, and I didn't want to cause any anti inflammatory induced stomach ulcer or kidney damage, and they were walking around like nothing had happened.

    I'll probably get around to it once of these days The do Terra brand is very expensive, and I'm getting by ok for now with pharmaceutical alternatives which are cheaper. These bullies are a challenge- I have a bully who chews her paws and have tried 3 different dog foods, colostrum, antihistamines,fish oil, coconut oil, turmeric, and have put bitter solution on her paws, betadine soaks, duoxo pads, selsun blue on her paws and so far no change. The next step is dehydrated raw food. I really don't want to start her on apoquel since it can cause skin cancer and immune suppression, and I'm sure that new Cytopoint is extremely expensive.

    Just gave you a brand but trust me i DONT buy doTerra or Young Living. I refuse to pay for their marketing. Mine is from New Directions Aromatic from Canada. I paid $15 for 15ml Arborvitae Wild (thuja occidentalis) Lot# 11004 -B04

    I swear by triple antibiotic ointment. I use cheap meijer brand but I don't think it really matters. I use it in whoppers nose rope a couple times a week and tail pocket if needed. Only use in tail pocket if it gets like what happened with Hank. Otherwise he gets one gentle swipe under there with a baby wipe. I found that messing with it too much or simply over wiping can cause problems too. I hope Hank feels better soon. Good luck.
