How to treat ringworm in cats, ringworm in kittens

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 its 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.  As a potent anti-fungal treatment, Banixx can make treating ringworm in cats straightforward. Cats' ringworm symptoms do make it easy to identify, however, it's always good to get a definitive diagnosis from your veterinarian.

So, what is ringworm exactly?

Despite its name, ringworm has nothing at all to do with worms, but rather with an insidious fungus that hides in the dark, moist areas under saddle pads, cinches, or cat/dog collars. Cat ringworm fungi feed on the natural skin keratin that is found in the outer layers of the skin, hair and nails. Ringworm in cats, and any other pet for that matter, is extremely contagious.  It can be easily transmitted from animal to animal or even animal to human through infected grooming supplies, tack, or even skin-to-skin contact.  Due to its contagious nature, treatment of your pets entire environment is vitally important to success.

Then, how do i treat ringworm in cats?

  • Gently put Banixx on the affected area of your kitten or cat's ringworm using disposable gloves.  A cotton ball soaked (but not dripping) in Banixx is generally a good approach.  This may be done two to three times daily for two to four days or, more if needed.
  • Using very light pressure, pat Banixx softly into your cat's or kitten's ringworm area, using the cotton ball or just your fingertips being sure to wear your disposable gloves for this.
  • To prevent the spread of this infection (ringworm in cats is highly contagious) immediately dispose of the gloves.

Banixx has been used with tremendous success on ringworm in cats and kittens due to its amazing anti-fungal properties. Note: since ringworm on cats, kittens is so contagious, it's a good idea to do some basic disinfecting procedures such as cleaning any grooming brushes/combs and bedding with a bleach and water solution. Spraying a household anti-bacterial spray such as Lysol, or similar, in and around your pet's living quarters is another sound precautionary step.

Banixx is the benign, immediate source of relief for treating ringworm in cats and fungal infections in cats.

Cat Testimonial

Ringworm in Cat EarOur organization is thrilled to have been introduced to your product! It was suggested last summer by family members in the horse industry, and it saved us so much time and expense with a litter of kittens that had a ringworm outbreak. The outbreak extended to the resident adult cats and dog in the foster home, but within a week after applying Banixx, the fungus on the animals had noticeably retreated.

More recently (March 15, 2014), an adult foster cat was admitted for dental surgery, and ringworm inside her ears was noted. The infection blossomed like mad over the course of the day due to the stress of the surgery, and we started applying Banixx that night. Four days later, the visible signs of ringworm were 95% gone. It didn't occur to us to take a "before" photo. This photo of her left ear was taken 4 days later (March 19). The nickel-sized red and flaky flare-up was gone, with only perimeter scabs left.

Banixx is far more fast-acting than the oral medications and stressful sulfur dips and anti-fungal shampoos that we've tried on cats and kittens in the past, and we're singing the praises to our veterinarians, fellow rescuers, and pet owners.
