Hello again

I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. Good news, Sparky should be just fine, and there are no special measures you need take in this sort of situation. You see the active ingredients of Neosporin are non toxic to dogs as of course antibiotics are often given to dogs orally, and in any case there is only a very small concentration of such drugs in Neosporin, and only a small amount was consumed in your case.

2. It is just possible that you may perhaps see a mild transient bout of gastroenteritis but even this is unlikely, most dogs will not show any symptoms of any sort.

3. Also I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if Sparky's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
