We employ Kranoselskii's fixed point theorem to establish the existence of nonoscillatory solutions to the second-order neutral delay dynamic equation [x(t)+p(t)x(τ0(t))]ΔΔ+q1(t)x(τ1(t))q2(t)x(τ2(t))=e(t) on a time scale 𝕋. To dwell upon the importance of our results, one interesting example is also included.
