I was scratching under his neck last night...and under his ears when i felt scabby skin... so i put the light on and began to part his fur...it started coming out in hunks! so today we made a trip to the vet and my worse fear was confirmed *RINGWORM* the vet said he hadnt seen a case this severe in a few years he has a patch of fur missing just under his ear about the size of a silver dollar maybe larger. He is to be confined to the bathroom until it is completly gone... (which i thought is a little severe) he is on oral meds once daily for how ever long... there are 4 refils on the box... topical ointment x2 a day for how ever long and lime sulfur dip/baths every 5-7 days (which we did today and it smelt HORRIBLE) I have stripped my entire apartment... vaccumed every corner... bleached what ever could be bleached...threw things away...but i am still super paranoid that either me my hubby my daughter or one of other 3 cats or ferret will get this! what else can i do? I searched the threads and i did everything in there... what else can i do!!
