Jack with Ringworm

by Allie
(Pretoria, South Africa)

Hi everyone -


My lovely girl, Maggie, has ringworm at the moment. We've been through the whole drill, vet, disinfecting, treatment. However, the vet advised to keep cuddling to a minimum to miminize spread/contagion until she's cured. We both miss our cuddles soooooo much. She doesn't sleep in the bed, but we often curl up on the sofa together. What can we do?

Aww, poor Maggie! Ringworm is definitely a frustrating issue. Ringworm can be contagious so I would avoid contact with her. That means you should not be snuggling with her unfortunately. And you should also be disinfecting her toys, bedding, and basically anything she's come in contact with - which is just about everything!!! A lot of work fur sure but soon enough you can go back to cuddling with her on the couch.
