She still scoots everyday and i know it is not her anal glands bcuz i have had them expressed and she will scoot the very next day. I have taken her to the vet several times and he can't tell me what is wrong with her. It is SO painful to see her scoot and at times lets out a YELP. She looks at me like please help mommy. It's terrible! So i run to the bathroom, get a cottonball and clean her va-jay-jay with alcohol and it seems to sooth her but she still scoots everyday.

    My girl is 6 years old and this has been a continuous problem for her.... it is yeast in her girly-girl and in her tail pocket. I use witch Hazel in the tail pocket and a medicated powder for her girly-girl. Banks also had to have a vulvaplasty (girly-girl reduction) at the age of 2 because she was prone to UTI's - until that procedure Banks was never without a UTI and because of all the antibiotics she would have yeast issues -- such a nasty cycle. She still has yeast problem so I try to avoid potato in her for and starches.

    Like what everyone else said, it sounds a lot like a yeast infection in the lady parts.

    Delilah used to get them when she was on not as great food. She's on a high quality food now and hasn't been having any problems.

    But her lady area would get swollen and she would have some rust red surrounding everything around there. I wipe her parts down with malacetic wipes every day just as prevention and to keep the area clean and yeast free. You might try doing that?

    Has your vet even looked at her girl parts?

    We give HRH gel cranberry pills every morning to help prevent UTI issues. We had problems when she was on antibiotics almost a year ago with her peeing in the house. We suspected UTI and started the cranberry pills. It seemed to fix the problem for us.
    Also we have used cream sold for human female yeast issues on yeasty looking spots that she has occasionally had. After cleaning the areas.

    I just wanted to say that Monday I caught Sally scooting her lady area hard on the concrete. I took her in and turned her over and she was raw. She has a big indentation just before her lady part. I cleaned her up and got her dry there and then put Desitin on it. Her vet gave me a prescription (it's at home and I can't remember what it's called) and as of yesterday she's all healed up.

    Shampooing her tail pocket and lady parts with Duoxo shampoo (follow the directions - you have to leave it on for a time) has been a godsend for Bea. Remember to rinse COMPLETELY and DRY as well as possible. I make a thickish paper towel "wick" for that tail pocket but you have to be super careful you don't leave any in there!!!

    i wipe sarahs tail pocket every day with duoxo pads and use it on her lady parts if necessary. i have duoxo shampoo i use on her yeasty parts when bathing. also some lotrimin powder on her yeasty folds helps keep it dry and combats the yeast. ive heard of desitin in the tail pocket to keep the wet out after cleaning and drying. glad she is better sis

    My sarge did that too! I had his glands expressed but it wasent that, so I lifted his tight tail and the opening to his tail pocket was infected. I started putting some antibotic save on it and its just about cleared up now. I would look under his tail with a small light and see if there is anything red or puffy.
