Can you use neosporin on dogs?

I have been using neosporin and alcohol pads for my dogs and their ears for the last few weeks. I use the alcohol pads with their ears out of the way and the neosporin to help with their itchy, sore ears. It seems to help for a while, but their ears still seem to be hurting. They usually scratch them so much that they go red and raw. Is this the norm with ear infections? I have no idea what to do to help them and haven't been able to find any answers. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks so much!

Hi-

There is no harm to using neosporin for the dogs. It is just one of many options available to treat infections and help prevent ear problems. If the dogs are otherwise healthy, it is just a treatment and the only potential side effects are a possible change in behavior and some of the ingredients in it may cause the dogs to lick the solution.

I think what would work better would be a topical ointment to treat the infection. It could be as simple as just a mixture of water and some petroleum jelly or a mix of oatmeal and vaseline and a bit of tea tree oil or lavender oil for a stronger effect.

I would make sure your dog is not getting anything else in their food or water, just the neosporin solution and water.

I know that sounds strange, but if the infection is really bad, then something may need to be done more quickly, but if it's not something that needs to be taken care of right away, a daily solution would be best for them.

The biggest thing would be to make sure they aren't getting itchy or scratching around in their ears too much and then trying to treat the infection after it's got a chance to develop.

Hi, I am glad that you are keeping your dogs ears clean. It seems as though you have been using a combination of both the Neosporin and the alcohol pads for the last few weeks? Neosporin can be a good thing to use as an antibiotic but I have found that it also helps to clean the ear canal and to help prevent future infections. I have found that the combination works the best.

The biggest concern is to make sure that your dogs are not getting the Neosporin in their food or water. I would suggest you try a different type of ointment instead.

I have used neosporin on my dogs (especially my shih tzu, who has a sensitive skin) and it has been a lot of times without any problems.

However, I never used it when my dogs' ears were infected. There was always other treatments I could use that wouldn't make my dogs' ears so much red and raw. The best would be a topical solution.

In the case of the shih tzu, I have tried to prevent ear infections with frequent baths, changing ears daily, keeping the ears clean, and giving the dogs good diet (no grain).

It's also better if you keep a close eye on your dogs' diet. I have had to change their diet several times when they were not eating properly and then the ear infection would come back, but with better diet, the ear infection wouldn't come back for a long time.

It's better to take care of
