• Are you sure it is ring worm, sounds more like Mange. There are two different kinds of mange and the Vet needs to do a skin scraping.

  • Im not sure what it is I am just going by what they told me at the Humane Society. We are getting her seen on Tuesday either by our vet or a vet that goes to one of the pet stores here cuz I want to get her treated asap! i will have to take a few pictures later and post them on here.


  • I think sarcoptic mange is easier to treat than ring worm, but the other kind is harder. I also am understanding it as most heart-worm meds have ivermectin which treats and helps prevent mange, so that'll help in the future.


  • I would avoid any over the counter treatments until you know exactly what she has.
    Do keep us posted.


  • thank you everyone… i have noticed that she isnt really scratching at where the spots are but she is keeping the area around it very clean. i just wish the vets were open tommorow ugh!!! dang holidays lol. i havent gotten a chance to take pictures of it yet since she was playing with my son most of the day. she is loving him sooo much.


  • well i couldnt find a good vet in the small yucky town to get her into until 3 weeks from now. So my last resort was to take her to this vet that has a little clinic at a local pet store here on tuesdays. All he did was look at her and told me he dosent think it is ring worm but some parasite but def not mange and gave me some liquid i am suppose to put on the spots until they are gone and to take her back in 2 weeks. So… I am going to get her into the Military vet we use as soon as they can which is about 3 weeks to get it checked again.


  • It doesn't sound like you have the best on call vets in town, but hey, they usually know what looks like ring worm and mange. Do you know the name of the liquid you were given?

    I hope you well, and that it goes away soon. Hopefully by the time you go to the regular vet, it will just be to make sure everything else is good.


  • Yeah we dont live in the greatest town, i wouldnt be here if i had a choose, dang military. ugh… i dont but i will look and get back to you on the name of the liquid


  • Hopefully the clinic vet was correct and the liquid stuff will work as long as you follow the directions - at least until you can get into the military vet (and I would bet s/he would be really good).


  • Sounds like Sierra Vista?


  • @Kebasmom:
