Ring Worm

What is ring worm? Well to make it an easy definition it is a Fungus. Yes the ring appears as worm looking shape but it is fungal. A form of Tinea that can appear on Head ,Groin , and Foot area.


Ringworm can be found in children but can infect anyone .

The rings can be itch and scaly ..Quite nasty ..

What causes Ring worm ?

It generally passes on through soil/ animals and other people. The fungus spreads through lesion or cut in the skin. The fungus does thrive in wet /damp conditions . Yucky it may seem so avoid sharing unwashed clothes / swimming pool areas / brushes combs and I would say possibly the shower floors need to be cleaned with Bleach . Oh boy !!. You can infect your pet and vice versa .

Ensure you dry hands properly

Do not share towels

Dry in between toes

Wash hands after you have touched your pet

Incubation period is around 10-12Days

Detection of ringworm

Your vet is the expert on ringworm .The vet will use

Lamp (ultraviolet)

Microscopic

Cultures

To analyse what is applicable to kill and cure your pet from the virus .If you are infected a trip to your doctor is required

Treatment

Get advice from your vet . The most common treatment is

Griseofulvin

It is an antifungal drug for your dog / cat

Or

Shampoos and Dips

These dips are lime sulphur based for your dog

Decontaminate the environment and ensure you bleach dogs kennel and cat bedding needs to be washed thoroughly

Your home needs to be vacuumed thoroughly and if possible steam cleaned as well

Hope this has been informative but always consult your vet . I have a range of products on my site

Interesting cat fact !


Interesting cat fact !


Did You Know!.. This fact is really interesting and can be found in the web of life book .

All fully ginger cats are only ever male .The female are only ever either black or tortoiseshell

You might ask why is lucy (cat shown below) Ginger then .. Yes she is Ginger but has white as well ..she isnot fully ginger .. ( her mum would have been white and dad ginger .. because she has no black ?)A rare ginger female .. Yes I have encounter a fully ginger female cat . The most amazing thing was the distinct ginger rings on the tail.. How do I know you might ask ..Well ..My cat from when I was a teenager was named Dozzie and she was a rare ginger female cat picked up from the animal shelter by my brother . She lived 15 Years

To give some Biological background ..(I,m no geek )Animal such in man have Chromosomes and genetics that make up who we are .



xx female xy male..

Tortoiseshell cat have Ginger coloured dad and Black Mum if she mates with a black cat she will have black or tortiseshell daughter or an orange or black sons..

The reason is that coat colour is determined possibly because the coat colour is carried on x chromosome ..Hope this was informative .. catch you on twitter
