What type of o-t-c antibiotic cream can be used on a superficial cut on a pet rabbit?

Hi,

Sometimes my female rabbits fight over the food bowel or who gets to the water bottle first, even though I have two of each in their cage!  One will get a superficial cut sometimes from when they fight, but not major to be seen by a Veterinarian.

What is a safe o-t-c topical antibiotic ointment to use on a rabbit for a superficial cut .. sometimes on the tip of her ear, etc?  Is Bacitracian or Neosporyn safe?

Thanks,

C~

Yes, topical Neosporin should be fine, as long as they cannot groom it off and ingest it.
