Antibiotic ointments are available to prevent and treat a variety of skin and eye infections in animals.
One popular formulation involves combining three antibiotics - bacitracin, neomycin, and polymyxin B. These "triple antibiotic" ointments are used to prevent and treat infections from minor cuts, burns or scrapes on the skin, as well as opthalmic infections. Triple antibiotics are able to work on a variety of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, including Pseudomonas and Staphylococcus resistant bacteria.
