Hi everyone - my bulldog, Bosco, has a very tight screw tail and he scoots. When my husband and I woke up yesterday morning we saw blood on the comforter and realized it was coming from Bosco's tail. We took him to the vet and, after shaving off some of his fur, she said he scooted so much that he rubbed some of the skin raw and gave himself a nickel sized, red, and angry looking sore, that's why he is bleeding. Our vet also said that, because Bosco has a very tight screw tail, he isn't getting any fresh air under there, which is causing a consistent case of 'diaper rash' and that iwhy he scoots. So, we have been told to keep the area under his tail clean and wash under there daily with a wet nap (we do that already) and to put an rx topical ointment on it to bring down the inflamation. My vet also told me that I have to keep it dry under there, so the raw, red skin under his tail can dry out and heal. Once we get the diaper rash healed he will stop scooting. Any ideas how I can dry it out under his tail and what I can put under there to help absorb moisture? Also any thoughts on what I can do to make him more comfortable in the interim so he doesn't scoot? I really want that wound to heal on the outside because it is sore and sensitive. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
