Subject: Re: Sore/Scrape on Ferret's Shoulder

I use Neosporin for things like that. I don't know if the two you
mentioned are basically the same thing or not. My vet recommends
keeping them occupied for at least 5 minutes to give it time to be
absorbed a little before they lick at it. I don't believe licking
neosporin in the amount that is used would be harmful, though it sure
doesn't help the sore any.

she must have scraped herself slithering under something. Would it
hurt her if I was to dab a little Polysporin or Ozonol on her sore to
speed up healing? What if she was to lick the salve, would it hurt
