What to Do With a Scaly, Dry Tailbone?
Well l've been battling a dry, scaly tailbone with Thumper for over 2 years now (excluding the winters when he's fine), and l'm really not sure what to do right now. The skin is dry and flaky, and Thumper has rubbed nearly every hair off the middle of the top of his tail. L've tried cleaning it with shampoo and conditioner once a week (this helps for a day or two), MTG (no change), l've scrubbed out under his tailbone, in case that was what was bothering him (again, no change), l've used a variety of products, but to no avail :). L'm hopeless when it comes to tail care :). He has been rubbing his tail since before l began leasing him 2 years ago and he's always been nearly bald up on his tailbone because of it :P. Lt only stops over the winter when he wears his blanket.
Any suggestions on what to do?
