    I missed this. Good news about her not being contagious!

    I believe there are different strands of ringworm too and some are worse than others. We had foster kittens with ringworm and they passed it onto Banjo who got it really badly. Her face looked terrible. The oral meds worked well though. I also got it, and my daughter. And the neighbour's kid. And a friend and her foster dog. But it seemed to kind of become less virulent as it was passed on? I think we are now all immune and interestingly enough the foster kittens we introduced into our house afterwards never got it. Even though the vet claimed the spores will stay in your carpets virtually forever.

    I did actually lose a friend over it though! He refused to come near us with his dog because he was so worried about passing it on to kids and dogs at the oval. I haven't heard from him since! Even though it was bloody annoying to deal with those first few weeks, I think both this friend and our near hysterical vet overreacted.

    Anywho, can't wait to hear more about your pup on Friday!

    That's great news!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    I do not know if you can even buy this stuff any more but my gran and my mother used to use Gentian Violet when we got ring worm as kids. You just dab it on and it is antifungal, antibacterial and it dries the skin off as well.

    Yes NEV, the gentian violet oldie but the goodie is still alive and well and can be bought in a can. It has been reccomended here for ailments on many occasions especially for horses.

    Genitian violet - I will find some. I take it regular dissinfectant wouldn't do the job?

    What a week! I'm like a child waiting for christmas, then being told christmas is cancelled, then it's back on again!!

    I've been sewing and made her the most awesome dog bed. Should I wait till her skin is completely clear before I let her have it? I assume if the vet says she's clear then she should be fine.

    That is why I use all my horse stuff....They still sell the "old fashioned treatments" that really work...purple spray is my saviour many a time

    Google search, seems that you can't buy it in Australia anymore? I can get it on ebay from the USA, but by the time it gets here the ringworm would have gone anyway.
