Please read on below to learn what ringworm is, where does it come from and what precautions/preventative measures to use.
Ringworm: It’s one of the most common skin conditions affecting pets of all shapes and sizes, from horses and show cattle to dogs and cats. Named for the characteristic circular pattern of hair loss that’s the hallmark of this infection, ringworm’s symptoms make it an easy problem to identify, but it’s always a good idea to consult your veterinarian for a definitive diagnosis.
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 collars. Ringworm is contagious and can be easily transmitted from animal to animal, or even animal to human, through infected grooming supplies, tack, or skin-to-skin contact.
Once you’re sure that ringworm is what you’re dealing with, the next step is to begin some basic disinfecting procedures such as cleaning grooming equipment and tack with a bleach and water solution, while treating the effected skin with a quality antifungal like Banixx™ Wound & Hoof Care. It’s also a good idea to limit your animal’s contact with it’s neighbors, and to take precautions yourself (by wearing gloves or washing your hands) to avoid contracting or transmitting the infection.
Thankfully, with a powerful antifungal like Banixx™ on your side, eliminating ringworm on any animal or in any location on the skin a relatively straightforward and painless procedure. Because Banixx™ doesn’t sting or burn upon application, and has no odor or foreign smell, it’s easy to apply to even the most skittish critters. More importantly, it’s safe to use around sensitive areas like the eyes and ears, and on the most delicate baby skin — so even a case of kittens with ringworm or ringworm in or on kittens can be treated without worry.
