Yikes!!! My vet has told me it's perfectly safe. I have used
Neosporin on abrasions, redness (itchy) around stitches, etc. I just
use a dab and don't use it for any length of time. I have given up
using it on Cedes' surgical area since he licks it off immediately.

I would definitely recommend that it not be fed like NutriCal <g>.

Please, Vets, give us your opinions. Please make other
recommendations if Neosporin isn't safe.
