Side Effects: On rare occasions dogs may be sensitive
to neomycin. In these animals, application of the medication will
result in redness and swelling of the treated area which may last
for 24 to 48 hours. In some instances there is transient discomfort
that may last for 2 to 5 minutes after application.
