The newborn piggie (Munchkin) has a tiny cut on her stomach (no, it's not the umbilical cord). It is not bleeding, but can I put a little bit of Neosporin on it?

I don't know if Neosporin is bad if she licks it off. I would just maybe wash it, and keep and eye on it.

Leave it alone but keep an eye on it. Mom will most likely do all the cleaning it needs. If you do feel the need to clean it use watered down Listerine mouth wash. It won't hurt the pigs if they lick it and it will disinfect. Mix it about 50/50 with the water.
