I have 9 mo lab mix w ringworm

Posted By Jovan (Brooksville, Fl) on 12/02/2011

I have a 9 month old lab mix I think she has ring worm my mother and I spent some time researching and I read to apply distilled white vinegar topically. I did this morning now it looks irritated ??? Now I read apple cider vinegar ??? Not sure what to do. Maybe nothing, maybe that means it is working. Can anyone help with some advice.

Our cat just had ringworm from a trip to the vet! I used ACV three times a day diluted 50/50. Our cat only had one small spot! I read to clip any hair around the area as close to the skin as possible and then to apply the mixture! My cats looked irritated for the first few days, but I continued like it said and after about 10 days it was gone! Then I bathed her one time in a small amount of Selsun Blue shampoo! She hasn't had anymore spots!

I also read to do a thorough cleaning of your home if your pet is inside! Bleach anything the animal came on contact with! We bleached anything plastic and then tossed out her bed and toys and bought new! I was told the fungus spore that causes it can live on fabrics for 4 months after! I shampooed our furniture and washed all the bedding in the house and bleached the towel and bath tub used! No one contracted any of the ringworm and she didn't develop anymore spots! I've also read that the vet medications don't help! Hope this helps you!
