    Can I use neosporin on a cut? It is on my chicks toe - the underside. It doesn't seem to bother her when walking but I just wanted to keep it from getting infected. Is it even worth it or do they cut their toes regularly with scratching and all?
    Thanks.

    Yes, you can use that. The things to be careful of are the "caine" products, like benzocaine, which can cause an adverse reaction. The toe will probably be fine, though.
