Polysporin, can it be used on cats cuts?

Question:
sorry i'm not to sure how this message board works, but i have a question. can polysporin be used on cats cuts?

Answer:
Yes, polysporin is fine for cats, although they will lick it off. Where is the cut and how bad is it?

Answer:
not to bad, its just a cut on the side of his face, on his gland. I think he got it fighting with another male cat. As far as i can tell its not infected, but i'm worried about him because he's not in the best of health.

Answer:
Fight wounds can often turn into abcesses on cats. They can also get fatal illness, such as leukemia, from fighting.

If your cat is unhealthy to begin with, you might want to have him checked out at the vet. He may need antibiotics, as cat bites are filled with bacteria and can cause infection.

Answer:
Unfortunatly Muffin is a stray cat that i just take car of, and i dont think my parents would be willing to pay for him to visite a vet. Its not a cat bite, its justa scratch on the side of his face that seems to be healing slowly and is causing his glands to become swollen and hard. I was also wondering is there any kind of natural remedy i could give him to help his mites?

Answer:
Clean it out with peroxide on a cotton ball and then put the polysporin on it with a Q-tip.
