A&D Ointment — Antibacterial ointment for scrapes and wounds. Dogs & Cats: Apply thin coating 3-4 times a day for 7-10 days. Anbesol — Topical anesthetic for mouth pain. Dogs: Dab on liquid with cotton swab once or twice a day for up to 2 days.
An upset stomach is a very common consequence if your dog ends up swallowing the A&D ointment. It may cause vomiting;
Watch out for allergic reactions
Considering that you will be applying A & D ointment directly onto your pup’s skin, there’s a chance that your dog could develop an allergic reaction.
We recommend administering a small patch test first.
Pick a small area of your dog’s skin and apply a tiny dab of the ointment then closely monitor the area to see if he develops mild rash, redness, or hives.
It is actually very common for dogs to get rashes or hot spots. In those areas, A&D ointment can be applied. It will help soothe the pain and make the healing process faster. The ointments can be applied to their paws as well.

Human medications such as Neosporin, hydrocortisone, and Vaseline should NOT be used. Topical creams and ointments tend to cause dogs to lick the area even more, so they should be avoided if possible.
