Cortisone cream is safe for dogs. It can be very efficacious on "hot spots", itchy areas, etc. However, these conditions can be caused by factors that seriously require a vet's attention, ie, a hotspot may be caused by sarcoptic mange, which can get bad enough to be fatal.

Yes, it is safe to apply cortizone cream or ointment on dogs. The key is to keep an eye on the dog and not let them lick it off.

It's fine as long as there is no broken skin on the dog. I've used it on mine several times. No problems.
