Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question.
So you've only been using the Neosporin for about 2 days?
Does he mind things on his feet?
Does he ever chew at this feet in general?
Okay....great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
You are absolutely on the right track here with the Neosporin. This type of topical antibiotic is often used for these kinds of issues....I would just ask that you modify a couple things.
First...I would wash and dry that area with a gentle soap (I like using human baby shampoo because it's non-drying and doesn't sting so most dogs don't mind it being used on an open area) and then rinse and pat it dry. Once it's mostly dry, you can apply that Neosporin in a thin layer and then try distracting him for 10-15 minutes, so that it has a chance to sink in and really get to work.
I would do the washing and medication 2-3 times a day. If this is going to clear it up, you should see an improvement within 2-3 more days. If you don't, then you may need to have the vet take a peek, just to be on the safe side.
I hope this helps.
No...the pictures didn't come through on this end. There should be a paperclip icon on your end that will help attach the photos.
