Just wanted to share an excellent comment/testimonial from a reader of ours. Her dog got a nasty ringworm infection and they had to battle through a couple of solutions before finding the proper ringworm treatment. Thanks for sharing Corinne!
Hi Ringworm Cure Information,
My name is Corinne and I just wanted to write in and say thanks for the excellent information you provide on this website. My dog is a 5-year-old border collie named Grover who got a really nasty ringworm infection. By the time that I discovered the ringworm, it was very pronounced and he had clearly been chewing at it. Border collies have relatively long hair and so I wasn’t able to find out about it until it was very infected and Grover was very irritated by it.
So, at the request of my veterinarian, I shaved the area around the ringworm infection very closely after having to trim the longer hair first. And since the ringworm had gotten quite bad, Grover was not happy to have me anywhere near the infected area. So, when I finally got the area shaved and clean, I applied the anti-fungal cream that the vet supplied my with. The active ingredient in this ringworm treatment was Miconazole which I was told is an FDA-approved anti-fungal. We began treatment and I applied the cream twice a day. The real pain was trying to keep Grover from licking the cream off and continuing to mess with the infection. I found that I couldn’t keep Grover away from the ringworm and eventually had to get him a halo to wear. Grover and I both hated it but within 4 weeks, the infection was almost completely gone.
My suggestion to every dog owner is to check your dog regularly while wearing gloves so that if there is a ringworm infection, you don’t get it yourself. The mistake I made was not doing this regularly which allowed the infection to get severe. This resulted in a long treatment period and a pretty uncomfortable period for Grover. Well, that’s my story. Thanks again for the great website!
