is Bacitracin Zinc poisonous to dogs 4 year old jack russell

This answer was rated:

is Bacitracin Zinc poisonous to dogs? 4 year old XXXXX XXXXX got into an ounce tube with less then 1/2 ounce in tube and may have digested some.
I am not concerned about that amount of ingestion. It still could result in some digestive upset (vomiting, diarrhea, refusing to eat), so you'll need to watch for that. If you do observe stomach/intestinal upset, you may still need to consult your vet for supportive care, but I am not worried about toxicity.
Good Luck
