Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I am sorry to hear that your pup has an eye infection.Polysporin can be safely used in the eyes. I would recommend using a new tube to guard against contamination, and making sure not to touch the tip to her eye.Also given that it is an ointment it will make things stick in her eye, so I would thoroughly flush her eyes with sterile saline to make sure her eye is as clean and dust/contaminant free as possible, and then apply the Polysporin.Best of luck with your pup, please let me know if you have any further questions.
