I adopted two kittens from an animal shelter and unfortunetly one has ringworm. He is being treated with medication from my vet. I have gotten two ringworms and am being treated by my doctor. What I need to know and didn't ask is: How long is this kitten infectious? He is clearing up; hair is growing back in all the places he lost hair. I would like to give him the run of the house when he isn't infectious. When can I safely do this? I have other cats and dogs and don't want them infected. Did you all know that ringworm is actually a fungus that grows in the shape of a circl? Wish I hadn't needed to know that! Thanks, Candy

Hi Candy,

Once the cat has ringworm it is very hard to get rid of. All the bedding,toys, brushes, dishes, etc for that cat needs to be decontaminated. Typically it is about a 6 week treatment program before it really goes away, and should be treated with topical and internal medication.
