Is it Ringworm?

Wednesday, October 30, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

The term “Ringworm” can be a bit confusing. This condition is not really caused by a worm. It’s actually caused by by a fungus that resides on the hair and skin of animals. Some symptoms can include bald spots, dandruff and wide spread hair loss. Unfortunately, you can’t look at your pet and be able to tell whether or not he has ringworm. Your vet has to do some tests in order for find out for sure. If your pet does have ringworm, some treatment can include topical fungal cream, whole body shampoos, or an oral anti fungal agent. Prompt treatment is important because ringworm is also contagious to pet owners.
