    DefaultIs it OK to use Neosporin on your Lab?

    Or is there something better? Turke has an big sore on his back, we think from shimmying under the pasture fences. He can't really reach it to lick it. I clipped all the hair away with my horse clippers to keep it cleaner. It's about the size of a dime....

    Yep, I've used neosporin many times. I've also used Gold Bond Medicated Powder and Acquafor (made by Eucerin).

    It's safe.

    Be sure to wash it off daily and reapply though- dirt gets trapped in it and can actually cause more problems.

    I use it on Mocha as long as it's not a place she's licking it all off right away.

    Molly had a raw spot on one pawpad from running on a stretch of pavement that was very rough, we put neosporin on it and it really seemed to help in healing it in just a couple of days.

    We're big on Neosporin here as well. I might clean the wound with some hydrogen peroxide as a one time cleansing (only once since it does not aid in drying out the wound), then apply neosporin for a couple of days.

    Neosporin should be fine. I usually use panolog, but that's because I have a tube that seems to have a bottomless pit. I've used it a lot, but the tube seems barely used.
