Bulldogs have the most adorable little screw tails covered in wrinkles that easily make you melt inside on sight, but cute as those wrinkly tails may be, these creases and folds open up their little back doors to a number of potential infections. If your furkid’s tail blocks the anus in any way, the infection could be made worse by anal sac fluids and feces, which could cause a terrible stench, though thankfully curable. Some dogs go on to develop a yeast infection in their tail pocket, which then causes them to lick and chew at their behinds with no shame. Yes, that horrible yeast infection could also be another cause of an icky stench. Tail infections are usually classified by itchy, red or stinky skin, though any other signs of irritation should always sound off an alarm.

How To Treat Bulldog Tail Infections

Clip the fur surrounding the infected area. Fur is a breeding ground for bacteria. Your best bet is to get rid of it so that it reduces the risk for further infection. This will also make it easier to treat the infection.

Wash the area with an antiseptic soap and blot dry carefully.

If there is an open wound, use a clean napkin or gauze to gently press out any pus. This should only be done if the wound is already open and draining pus.

Soak a washcloth in warm water and apply it over the area. Warmth draws out blood antibodies and white blood cells that help to fight off infection. Apply the warm washcloth to your dog’s skin intervals of five minutes - 5 minutes on, 5 minutes off, until the cloth cools. Repeat this process 2 to 5 times a day until healing is seen. This process not only helps to soften and remove scabs as they form, it also helps to reduce the risk of abscess formation.

If your bulldog’s tail infection is bad enough to warrant serious concern, quickly check in with the veterinarian in the case an antibiotic precription may be needed.

Need Something Stronger For Severe Bulldog Tail Infections?

For more intense infections, consider applying Skin Soother to the affected areas. Skin Soother has been seen to be a little stronger than Wrinkle Balm and is packed with all natural, vegan, organic healing herbs that naturally fight off bacteria, fungus, yeast and inflammation.

How To Prevent Future Bulldog Tail Infections

Wrinkles are a thriving ground for bacteria, yeast and other infections due to it being a dark and moist space. It is therefore key, to have good daily cleaning habits integrated into your routine with your furkid. Do also always make sure that the cleaned area has been completely dried off once cleaning is done. A healthy tail is a happy pup!

Wrinkle Balm is an effective treatment method as well as preventative measure. There is no harm continuously applying Wrinkle Balm even after the infected area improves. Daily cleaning, followed by an application of Wrinkle Balm will help prevent future infections from forming. Give your bulldog the greatest chance at a healthy and happy life, full of endless tail wags.
