    When this Doe I am speaking of was bred about 7 week ago, the Buck got to regresive and bite her on the back of the neck 3 times. 2 of the wounds look good, but one is still raw, I think the knats are biting her. Can I put Neo-Sporin on the cut, to help it heal? She has 11 Kits.

    Thanks

    I use neosporin on all my animals. First I wipe the wound gently and then use a dropper to put some peroxide in it. After that dries a little bit I put on neosporin. Most of the time it works very well in promoting good healing.

    I heard that you could also use bag balm, If you have any on hand. If not you can get it at wal-mart or any farm supply store. I use it on my animals. Hope she gets better. My buck is overly excited also, he pulls huge fur spots out of our does. Hope that helps. You can get neosporin with atopical pain killer in it also.
