Cat Ringworm

Ringworm is a common problem that cats face. It is the common name given to the fungal infection of the superficial layers of the nails, hair, and skin. These infections also occur in humans and other domesticated animals.

The name ‘ringworm’ is termed from the classical appearance of raised, red, and rounded ring marks of inflammation in animals affected with the disease. The organisms that are solely responsible for ringworm is a group of fungi called dermatophytes.

Cat Ringworm

 

What does ringworm look like?

Detecting ringworm in cats can be quite challenging; this is because the abrasion of ringworms can potentially remain undetectable. The fungi feed on the keratin that is found in the outer layers of the nails, hair, and skin. The only visible indicator of ringworm infection in cats is the ‘cigarette ash’ that scales down to the depth of the fur coat. Some cats might also have thickened patches of skin with no hair. Hair loss takes place when the spores infect the shafts of the hair, thereby increasing the fragility of the infected hair.

In cats, the main sites for these abrasions are usually along the ridge of the back, forelegs, chest, and head. These abrasions are not normally itchy. At times, this condition also takes place on your cat’s claws, which is known as onychomycosis. In this condition, the claws develop a scaly base and might become pitted and rough.

 

How is ringworm transmitted?

Ringworm is a transmission and contagious occurs by direct contact with the source, i.e. the fungus. Additionally, it can also be transmitted via touching contaminated surfaces, handling contaminated objects, and direct contact with an infected animal.

The fungal spores might also remain dormant in furniture, food bowls, brushes, and on combs for many months. But contact with the fungus does not result in an infection; it also depends on the age of the exposed animal or human. A healthy specimen will be able to resist the infection while young children and old people and animals might not. If your cat has been infected with ringworm, it is high-likely that it has acquired by getting in contact with a contaminated cat.

 

How is a ringworm infection diagnosed?

If your cat is infected by the ringworm fungus, you can check for yellow-green fluorescence glow under ultraviolet light in a dark room. However, this method might not reveal any fluorescence at all, since some species of dermatophytes do not fluorescence under ultraviolet light. In these cases, additional diagnosis is needed to confirm the presence of ringworm fungi.

The best way to diagnose this problem is to take your cat to the vet and opt of a full body scan, once your feline starts scratching itself more than usual or started suffering from hair loss in specific parts of the body.

 

What are the best medicines for treating cat ringworm problems?

Some medicines that can help eradicate the problem of ringworms in felines are:

 

Davis Miconazole Spray

The Davis Miconazole Spray is an antifungal spray that can be used on horses, cats, and dogs. The medication contains a formula that helps treat fungal skin infections like scaling due to seborrhea, superficial infections by yeast, and of course, ringworm problems. It also contains Vitamin E and other skin conditioning agents.

The medicine is clear of fragrances and dyes, which might cause additional reactions and irritation. Some of the ingredients used to make this medicinal spray are alcohol, polysorbate, polyethylene glycol USP, BHT, and miconazole nitrate.

 

Vetoquinol Clotrimazole 1% Solution

The Vetoquinol Clotrimazole 1% Solution is primarily used to treat dermatological conditions that are associated with fungal infections and can be treated by Clotrimazole. The medicine will provide immediate relief to conditions that accompany fungal infections like discomfort, burning, cracking, and itching.

The medicine is available in both spray and drops forms for cats and dogs. Some other ingredients used here apart from Clotrimazole 1% are SD alcohol 40, propylene glycol, chloride phosphate, benzyl alcohol, etc.

 

SilVet MC Antiseptic Shampoo

This shampoo offers a wide range of cleansing. It contains miconazole for antifungal efficacy and chlorhexidine for antibacterial activity. Additionally, it also has enhanced antibiofilm and antiseptic activity. The ceramide III is a skin-identical molecule that will support the growth of the skin’s protective layer and will efficiently reduce the loss of moisture.

Some of the ingredients used to make this shampoo are ceramide III, microsilver BG, chlorhexidine 2%, and miconazole 2%. The shampoo can be used on horses, cats, and dogs.

 

Griseofulvin

Griseofulvin is an antifungal medication that effectively stops the growth of ringworm on your cat. The medicine disrupts the cell division of the fungus and prevents it from multiplying. In short, the fungus goes into an inactive state. This medication can go on for a span of many weeks.

Griseofulvin is more effective when given with a source of fat, like butter. This enhances the absorption by the bloodstream. This medicine should not be given to pregnant cats since it can cause some forms of deformities in the kittens in the womb.

 

How long does the cat remain contagious?

Most commonly, infected pets remain contagion for at least three weeks, if aggressive treatment is used. Minimal measures will only make the ringworm last a lot longer. It is recommended that other pets and your family members stay clear of the infected cat until the ringworm problem is treated successfully.

If treated properly, a vast majority of cats will recover from a ringworm infection. While the appearances of abrasions might not change for the initial span of time, you will be able to see some improvements within the onset of the second week. If the treatment is discontinued too early, some symptoms might reappear.

The above are some of the best treatment medicine for ringworms in cats. You can also look for non-medical alternatives if you choose to. But, it is recommended that you follow your vet doctor’s advice in these cases. A cat is a member of your family and it is simply not fair to see it suffer from curable medical problems like ringworms.
