The price for Conofite varies on the amount you purchase and the amount of animals you're treating as well as their size and the size of the ringworm patches. However, If i didn't get my conofite for free (the one perk that comes along with volunteering is some medication for free)....I would currently be paying to treat......all four of my cats, 6 foster kittens, two dogs, and a rabbit- which cannot use conofite - the treatment for rabbits is much more expensive. Not to mention, my mom recently had major surgery, so any risk of infection from ringworm could greatly compromise her health (another reason i'm at Colins
)So far i'm out over $180 between shampoos ($16 per bottle/ I bought two), vet visits for my own animals and not the fosters, and other medications, because the conofite didn't work for everyone. That doesn't begin to cover what it's cost me recently when Colin and I got ringworm. The Mentax is $35 (with insurance) every time I refill it- i've refilled it 4 times. Also, i've had to shell out $$$ for 2 dermatologist visits. Since the Mentax didn't work, they put me on an oral medication which was $50 (on my insurance) ....that gave me an allergic reaction and thrush in my mouth
So I had to spend another $10 for presciption mouth rinse to get rid of the thrush. (it works awesome!! it's all gone now
) ---so yeah, It's definitely costed me a fortune lately to treat ringworm. Money I don't have since i'm looking for a 2nd job just to make ends meet. So ringworm is definitely not cheap to trat
