Ringworm in Cats and Dogs - YouTube

I got 2 very sweet orphaned kittens at 3 weeks old. At about 6 weeks old they started to lose abit of hair and their coat became patchy. My vet advised that they should have been put down as they were orphans and they had ringworm. I was very upst as i had grown ver attached to my little girls, so he gave me the weekend to decide what i wanted to do. Over that weekend I did alot of googleing and got onto a lady that breeds cats. She advised me to first try bathing them in warm water and then to get a antifungal cream used on humans. She assured me that it was safe and she had successfully tried this before and it had worked. I used the cream on them and continued to rinse them with warm water to get rid of the dead hair.
They are now 9 weeks old and are both growing back healthy coats. I took them to the vet this week and he said that they are fighting fit. He also said that it is not likely to come back beacuse it was treated early.
I do not suggest that people go against vets advice but I just thought that I should post this as it has worked for me and thought it might be of use for someone else if your cat or kitten has minor ringworm.
The cream that i used was a generic brand of broard spectrum antifungal cream! it cost me $12.95 from the chemist.

Ringworm In Cats and Dogs What is Ringworm? Ringworm is not actually caused by a worm, but rather by a fungus that infects the outer layer of skin and hair. If you suspect ringworm in your cat or kitten, then your cat has one of the most common fungal skin problems known to pets. Named for its characteristic circular pattern of hair loss, the hair at the edge of the cat ringworm may be somewhat tufted or raised up. The hair loss results in bald spots that may be generally smooth; altho it's not unusual to see a reddish ring around these spots. Sometimes, however, these areas are crusty and look like sores, so one description does not fit all. For ringworm on cats, the main sites for these lesions are the skin on the face, ears, chest, forelegs and along the ridge of the back.
