Can You Put Neosporin on a Dog? - 4aPet

Posted by Ally Cohen on

Neosporin, also called triple antibiotic ointment, is safe to use on dogs in small amounts for minor cuts and scrapes. Follow the instructions on the package and keep your dog from licking the area where it is applied for at least 15 minutes. Once the ointment has been absorbed into the body there isn’t a serious danger to pets, although the oily base can cause an upset stomach. If your pet licks it off shortly after it’s been applied, Neosporin can cause vomiting and diarrhea.
