Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

In regards ***** ***** question, you can try this cream on Squirt as long as he isn't allowed to lick it off. As I am sure you can appreciate, licking it off won't benefit his skin and could cause GI upset and diarrhea. Otherwise, just to note, if he has patches of irritation and itchy skin, you could also try OTC hydrocortisone cream +/- orally supplement with Vitamin E (ie up to 3.5 grams or a dog his size) to help his general skin health.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
