Abcam has a rabbit anti-neutrophil elastase that works on rat FFPE tissues, 
according to their website.

I do not know of a neutrophil specific ab for human ffpe tissue.  You could
do just DAB without blocking with h202 for myleoperoxidase but it will not
distinguish between eosinophils and neutrophils myeloperoxidase will stain
all myeloid cells with granules in the cytoplasm (granulocytes).

I was asked to perform neutrophil IHC on rat FFP sections. I searched around
and found most are for mouse tissue. There is one from Serotec mouse anti
rat but it does not work on paraffin section.

Could anybody recommend a good antibody?

Thanks in advance,
