Ringworm: I tried apple cider vinegar on my dogs and it didn't work. I used providone iodine from the pharmacy and used it twice a day with a cotton ball on the visible spots and it went away. Then diluted in water like tea color and poured on them after bath, careful with eyes!!! It hasn't come back. Always buy the gallon. Better buy!

My good old fashion vet, Who's been a vet for a very long time told me to use Iodine on my cat for ringworm. It worked very well! You just put it on with cotton balls or swabs to the affected spots. Use it every day for a week. My other cats never got it either. The Iodine puts a coating on there. Seals it so to speak. My cat was real bad in some places. His fur is growing back quickly now. You must not get it into the cat's eyes. It will stain material and your skin. So wear rubber gloves and old clothes. I hope this helps someone. It worked for my black cat Twilight. Betty Oh yea I tried the apple cider vinegar. It DID NOT WORK.

I recently read (in Mother Earth News Archives, 1971) that cats are highly susceptible to iodine poisoning. I think there are safer alternatives to using iodine on/in a cat.

I have wormed my dogs and cats successfully for twenty-seven years with iodine. It's slower than commercial wormers but safer and with less side effects. I no longer use it only because I found another natural wormer that's even better.

When I was 21, I came back from the lake with what we call 'ringworm'. It is not a worm but a fungus. An older man I showed it to told me to put iodine on it. The red skin cleared within a few days. Ever since, I have been using it on abandoned cats that come in from the cold with various states of the fungus. It clears within days. Vets panic at the sight of ringworm because of the possibility of contagion to humans. Some will even suggest to put the animal to sleep. They have a tendancy to give chemical pills, I have no idea if they work. Apply the iodine on the rim of the spot as it is where the fungus lies and multiplies."
