    Hello, everyone

    I have a hen that cut her foot following a mishap in the yard. There does not seem to be serious injury, but I want to prevent infection. I'm looking for suggestions for something topical to put on the cut. Would Neosporin work?

    She is currently inside, on a clean towel, in a dog crate.

    Thanks!

    Betadine, Vetericyn, chlorhexidene, and plain neosporin/triple antibiotic ointment are all good to use.

    Neosporin without the pain relief, before I read had got the wrong one. Exchanged for the "without pain".

    Do you have a sterile gauze pad and Vet wrap to keep it clean? That might help, as well as the initial cleaning and neosporin.
