Bulldog Tail Pocket Maintenance

Bulldog Tail Pocket Maintenance: Hello, we are currently trying to get our routine down with cleaning our bulldog’s tail pocket. This is our third bulldog but our first experience with tail pocket issues.

The vet says it is not infected, but it is VERY stinky and she gets little brown smelly spots on our blankets and we have not found an effective cleaning routine. There is so much advice out there that it has become confusing – ugh! Now that I have read your website, I feel like I can narrow it down to 2 products – a more effective rinse and then a protective barrier for the moisture (we currently have just a chlorhexidine rinse).

A couple of questions – would the use aquaphor be effective for the moisture barrier? That is what we use for many skin ailments and it is also used for baby diaper rash. I am going to order your rinse and make our own “wipes” – I see that daily cleaning is recommended. In the beginning, should I (would it be safe) to use the rinse twice a day until we get the odor under control? Or just stick to a consistent daily routine? We are committed to any routine necessary, just want some good sound advice on what will be safe as well as EFFECTIVE. Fortunately, she does not seem to be sore at this point nor does it appear to bother her – except when she leaves her smell/brown stuff she tends to sniff and lick it (sorry not trying to be gross).

Thank you in advance for your additional help! Your website is WONDERFUL!

Dear Dana

Bulldog and French bulldog Tail Skin Fold Moist Dermatitis is very common to the breed. Other common skin fold bulldog locations are the face, nose, toes, inguinal, vaginal, and neck. I have four different Bully Skin Fold Products which provide the essentials for bully skin fold maintenance.

Answer for Bulldog Tail Pocket Maintenance 2 X V4B WIPES
I designed two types of skinfold wipes, a small round one and an extra-large pull-out one. For your bully tail, I recommend the XL one, it is economic, utilitarian,  easy to use and pull, and most importantly it can medicate large surfaces and will protect your hand and finger from the smell and debris.
Answer for Bulldog Tail Pocket Maintenance HOW & HOW OFTEN
HOW OFTEN: Skin fold cleaning should be done daily.

HOW: You should go all the way under the tailbone, clean the entire pocket, and wipe from 3 to 9 o’clock a few times.

In a severe acute case, the area can be sealed with an Rx-medicated ointment or powder.

Good Luck
