    Oh so it might not actually mean that they have ringworm then? Let me know how the most recent culture that you retook turns out! good luck All three of my cats PCR test came back negative! This is not diagnostic that they are in the clear at all, but does let me know that the situation is in...

    Ringworm

    awwww :( Im sorry to hear that the color changed. what does the red and white colony mean though? Could it be bacterial? Or another fungus that isn’t ringworm? I think for now you should separate those two cats from the rest for now. If it comes back positive, I think you should see a vet...

    Ringworm

    My russian blue bald spots are definitely ringworm. As per my vet dermatologist, ringworm can manifest in different ways in cats depending on how their body react to it. Some could just be dandruff, crusting only, asymptomatic with no hair loss or no lesions at all, just lesions, or just bald...

    @Sandy7272 Hi sandy, was wondering if you still disinfect the floor/etc or how often you vaccum since you let your pets out of the cage? Do you disinfect weekly now? Or none at all? Just vacuuming? I will probably order some fungassy tests either today or tomorrow. @JacquieM and @Sandy7272...

    Yep! Even when I don’t reply, I have been reading up on everyone’s conversation :) Thanks! Frankly speaking, I like being at work more than at home now 😂 I used to not like work too, but I at least get to not do any cat chores during my 12 hours shifts :) I’m still just a bit sad that my Russian...

    Yep. I work 12hrs night shift as a nurse. Will be off the next three days now! Will be able to get a lot of cleaning. At the rate of the way each cat is healing, I’m more concerned of them reinfecting each other during treatment again :/ initially, it was just one cat with lesion, now it’s three...

    “Arrived cold with overnight and I was able to purchase two sets of vials with overnight air for $104.00.” So that’s 20 tests? For 104.00? That’s very cheap! how often have you been using up the tests. Did you use up the Intial two vials yet? because my insurance doenst cover my cat’s vet...

    Ringworm

    its okay. i'm pretty desperate to get this fungus off my cats and out of my life. if i could, i would pay someone a good amount of money to take my cats in, treat them for the ringworm for several weeks- months and bring them back to me 100% ringworm free. they started their 5 weeks itrafungol...

    article online: "Hair re-grows long before the fungus is exterminated" :eek: my dermatology vet said that "As of right now there is not sufficient enough research on this product, therefore we do not recommend using it." i will still be using the UVC lamp anyways just because it is lab...

    Ringworm

    thanks for the articles! i read through some of them. also i did more research on UVC light. from what i read, natural sunlight mainly consist of UVA and some of UVB. UVC, barely gets through the ozone layer and UVC light is what kills ringworm. another journal i read said that UVC light 254...

    change the litter daily as in throwing out the whole litter. dont need to put a lot of litter in it since you only have one cat. i would wipe the litter down with baby wipes or a wet towel afterwards just because my cats leave fur in it. the litter box would be disinfected twice weekly. also...

    Ringworm

    I wouldn’t exactly say it’s very very stressful. The cats don’t like it for sure but it’s not traumatizing to them. Haven’t tried spot dipping because I rather dip their entire body in case their ringworm is generalized. Dipping their entire body is ideal. Some people do spotting treatment...

    Ringworm

    so sorry that you need to go through ringworm after your cat with cancer. stress after stress isnt ideal at all, but keep hope. on the good side, ringworm is just a skin infection. it is not life threatening. definitely a pain though. also, since you only have one cat, you dont need to worry...

    Ringworm

    good luck trying to find a dermatologist! maybe you can start itrafungol 10 mg/kg every day for 3 weeks as well. lime sulfuring dipping is also very helpful. those two treatment alone is usually enough to get rid of the ringworm as long as the environment is clean. actaully right now none of...

    when you do fungassy cultures, do you take fur from where their lesions were originally at? or do you take fur from various parts of their body? also i heard that for cultures, you shoudl take fur from the lesions last. when my vet did cultures they would only take fur from where the cat's...
