My name is***** and i will help you.

Fortunately, he is a BIG dog. Eating the contents of a tube of Bacitracin will not harm him.

He might get some loose stools from the gel base of the Bacitracin.

Of course keep him away from all medications.

If you have any questions - even after the rating - please feel free to ask. I am here to help you
