    Ringworm

    It was the most horrible situation to go through. I never want to see or have ringworm again. Thank all of you for your caring advice. It took 3 months. The vet ended up keeping Toby for a week while my daughter and I thoroughly cleaned house with bleach. Walls and all. And Toby got over...

    Ringworm

    It was ringworm. We fought it for 3 months. It was a nightmare and I about lost my mind. But we are well now. It’s finally over. Thanks to everyone. Toby’s mom

    Ringworm

    A dermatologist? For cats? Never heard of such. He’s been to the vet. He gets better, appears to be healing, then it gets worse again.

    Ringworm

    I’ve shampooed carpets twice with rubbing alcohol added to the water. And am shampooing again tomorrow. It’s not a steamer. Just a regular shampooer. I will be boiling the water. I know I am paranoid as heck of reinfection. I know these spores can live forever. I feel so defeated. Like...

    Ringworm

    It does look better, but still glows yellow when I check him with the black light. There are hairs growing back, though. No new lesions. I wish I could be sure because I want to take the cone collar off of him so bad, but am so paranoid that he will spread it when he grooms himself. Maybe...

    Ringworm

    Thank you all so much for your kind words and advice. I appreciate it. It helps. His nose definitely looks less angry. I can see tiny hairs growing back. Our vet lets people in. There’s just no sitting in waiting room. Not scheduling as many appointments I think. How do you know when it’s...

    Ringworm

    Hello. Toby went to vet today. He said there is new hair growth on his nose. He weighs 12 lbs, not 10, so increased Griseofulvin dosage. He gave him a steroid shot. Keep him isolated and medicated and should see improvement soon. He checked him over and doesn’t see any other spots of...

    Ringworm

    Wish I knew. I wash and change blankets daily. I’ve shampooed carpets twice with rubbing alcohol in the water. I vacuum daily and wipe surfaces with bleach water. I’ve washed all the curtains. But yes, it was on his ears and over his eye. That cleared up, then started on his nose Dec 22...

    Ringworm

    Yes. I’ve gotten it 3 times. I am giving him griseofulvin and using miconazole cream both from vet. I told them Tuesday it’s not working. They made me an appointment for Saturday. I agree it’s taking way too long.

    Ringworm

    Thank you. I love him so much. I just need him to get well. I need this to be over. He is not responding to Griseofulvin and miconazole cream. It’s on his nose and between his eyes. He is wearing a cone collar so he can scratch. He’s depressed and miserable as am I.

    Ringworm

    My cat has ringworm and it’s not going away. He’s been on medicine and cream since Thanksgiving. He’s not responding to medicine. I’m doing everything I’m supposed to do. I’m just frustrated. I love him. I just want him well. I just had to vent. I’m so anxious and frustrated. Thank you...
