Is neosporin safe to use on a mouse?

She got caught in a hemp-like next & now has raw skin and pus all around her neck. The vet said it was mites but the medication he gave didn't help.

Yes, neosporin is safe to use on a mouse. She won't like it when you apply it, but it will help to prevent or ward off any sort of infection. Be sure to rub it in well and clean off the excess to prevent ingestion. Apply 2x/day and see a vet if the wound is open.

The ingredients found in neosporin include: Bacitracin, neomycin, and polymyxin B which are antibiotics that kill bacteria on your skin. Most medicines are animal tested. One would think that using neosporin is safe to use on a mouse; however, neosporin is not safe for consumption so make sure the mouse cannot consume the neosporin.

it is safe but it will not help the mouse you should use an ointment for diaper rash since the skin is raw. you mite beable to get it free from your vet becase thr stuff they provided did not work for the mouse. if not its adout five bucks.

Yes, neosporin can be used on mice in small amounts. Get the kind with a pain reliever and apply gently with a cotton swab. Make sure to wipe off any excess and prevent your pet from ingesting the product as it could be dangerous/toxic. Then get a second opinion from a vet who specialises in exotics/small animals.
