do you think this is rabbit safe?

my new rabbit has licked a raw spot above her tail where a very large hard, mat used to be.
I have neosporne, and Espree wound cream. I use the wound cream on my dogs and it works wonders. Do you think its safe for rabbits? it is approved for use in cats, and kittens too!

purified water, aleo vera, petrolatum, bitrex, natural herb oils, yeast

bitrex makes the wound taste nasty so they do not lick at it.

Neosporne can kill the good bacteria in the gut. I have used it before, but very sparingly. I have read that Aleo Vera is toxic to rabbits. I had a vet tell me to use that before, which I did and it caused no problems, but it didn't help either. I think I would make sure that the raw spot was clean and dry, then I might try a little A&D Ointment, which is sold for diaper rash. I have used that before and it seemed to help ease itching.

Remove the source of the problem-mat. Get some Betadine and/or Hibatane soap (from vets but I was told betadine is just as effective) and clean it twice a day in warm water. Once a day depending on the severity. Akina had sore hocks for such a long time and I bathed her in Hibitane and betadine when I ran out and the sore kept coming back, I dont trust ointment which can be harmful so I dont risk using them, the vet told me as long as the source is removed the sores will cease. Which they did, in her case the source was Yesterdays News litter.
Good luck! I hope it gets better.. Kepp us posted

Yeah...Aloe Vera is toxic to rabbits.

Moonchild - Shame on your vet for suggesting it! :/
