Our 8 month old female EB seems to be quite irritated under her tail. Our Doc advised us at our last visit that it is common to have to remove EB's tails since it is very difficult to clean the area out and they tend to become infected and inflamed. Since she show'd no signs at the time of having an issue, he cleaned it well and we have just been cleaning it out when she gets a bath or gets her wrinkles and eyes cleaned each week. Within the past three weeks though, she has been sitting and spinning on the carpet...like it is itching her back there. I have been cleaning it out with mild soap and water (rinsing all the soap out) and then drying it well....but it is just as dirty the next day. There seemed to be some dry blood, lots of caked up hair and some redness around the tail, so we have been cleaning it out and using a moistened Q-Tip (gently) to get in the small area and then applying a thin film of Neosporin. Has anyone had similar issues or had to have the tail removed?
