• Can I put Neosporin on my dog's vagina? She went to the groomers yesterday and her vagina is a little red, maybe irritation. How do I help treat it?

    Hi Benelia, if the redness is still present I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian. This is not something that is usually seen in dogs and might be more than just irritation from the grooming. If this is the case she will likely need some other form of treatment. I would not use Neosporin unless directed to do so by your vet. The main concern with this medication would be if she could lick at the area and ingest it. This can sometimes lead to toxicity.
