    I use a baby wipe with witch hazel or skin cleaner on it for normal cleanings, if I find any gunk or foul smell I will use malacetic otic ultra or panalog ointment. Both of those can clear it up in no time, but they do NOT like the malacetic otic ultra at all..... they all over after I use it.

    The article states to use something with a drying agent in it. What would be a good product with a drying agent? I haven't had any issues with their tail pockets yet, and really, only Molly has a good size tail pocket. Leo does not have one.

    for fiona, we clean her twice a day. we use malecetic wipes (which has drying agent) and spray it with drying ear cleaning solution onto the wipe to help with any yeast. we try to get up into her tail pocket as deep as possible as well as surrounding areas. its been a battle as she randomly starts scooting every once in a while. unfortunately the only times she has stopped is when she goes on an oral antibiotic. we're trying to find more permanent solutions outside of amputation.

    Wally doesn't seem to have a tail pocket but after reading about it on this forum I have started to clean it with baby wipes anyway, just to make sure all is good with his bum.

    just be wary of baby wipes.

    we saw this link before: http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/baby-wipes-dogs/ but wasn't sure if there was any validity behind it. it could be just some company that makes dog wipes and wants people to avoid the much cheaper baby wipes.

    FAQ: How Do You Keep Your French Bulldog's Tail Pocket Clean?

    I use huggies natural aloe & vitamin E baby wipes on isabelle and Titan when needed for their butts. Isabelle doesn't have a tail pocket but Titan has a very very short clamped down tail and I can't confirm if he has one or not, but this thread will come in very handy if he does!

    I also have John Paul dog bath wipes from the doggy salon
