han_victoria My current vet told me that she does not like to use ointment on them, she said that some antibiotic topical ointments really sting them, and if they lick it off every time, it can start to be dangerous for them. It is fine if they only lick it a couple of times, but too much can become very harmful.
I do nt know about your cream specifically, but from what my vet said, it is unnecessary with oral antibiotics, and it seems like it is only causing her stress.
Hope that heps, hope she heals up!

Quick Question about Ointment

So took my little jupiter to the vet today, we woke up today to find what appeared to be a cut or almost rubbed sore by her front leg, seems she's a bit overweight (to my surprise, but vet said not much) either way they gave us some antibiotics and pain meds but also suggested to put the Polyosporin on the wound a bit to help it heal.

When I put this on her, it seems to make her go almost crazy... she runs around, hissing, almost like giving her a cup of coffee. Has this happened to anyone else? If so, what does it mean? Is it just stinging and thats how they react? She of course is now licking it constantly should I just leave her alone after putting it on and let her do her thing? I assume her licking it off isn't a huge deal but sure seems to drive her nuts.
