Two weeks ago i got a persian kitten, 2 months old. He had a bald spot on his head which was not circular and he had no hair on his belly, nose and ears. He had scabs/crusts almost all over his entire body. I took it the vet who diagnosed it with cat mange. He clipped off his hair and started treating it. The kitten showed marked improvement, he got more playful and started to move around and explore new places. His bald spot got better and new hair started to come out. A week after this, i saw a ring like lesion on my forearm and my doctor told me it was a ringworm infection i might have contracted from my cat. I noticed a bald patch on my kitten’s back and took it to the vet, who has now started to treat my kitten for ringworm. I could not find itraconazole in my city, so the vet prescribed ketoconazole (nizoral) 1/8 tablet twice daily and ketoconazole shampoo bath every third day. i gave my kitten oral ketoconazole for five days now. My kitten has lost a lot of hair from hind legs and back, and is very weak now. It does not play and sleeps most of the time. It eats well though. I have stopped nizoral tablets and found oral griseofulvin,which i’ve read is a better option than oral ketoconazole. I dont trust my vet and there is no other vet available where i live. Shall i start giving my kitten oral griseofulvin (10 mg/kg) and how long does one has to give oral medications, or shall i just stick to bathing. How long will it take for my kitten to get better and is cured completely.

    When my Persian had ringworm – which kept coming back again and again – the best site I found was called PetsBestRX. They have a special site for Ringworm and I used the Sulfinex cream, the Healing & Protection spray and the Disinfectant spray for the room she was in. You can also use the cream and spray on yourself. It is important that you try to confine your kitten to one room as the spores from the ringworm will enter the atmosphere and keep reinfecting her. If you have other animals you should not allow them to come into contact with each other.

    I preferred using the more “natural” ingredients in the PetsBestRX stuff as I thought the shampoos and oral medication from the vet were very very harsh on such a small animal. Anyway, the end result was that the ringworm never came back again. The down side is that it comes from the USA so I had to pay shipping costs but it was worth it and I am never without it now – just in case!

    oral griseofulvin is the only approved medication for ringworm. When giving the griseofulvin watch for signs of depression in rare cases this happens.You have to give it to the cat 10mg/kg/day for 15 days along with the ketoconazole shampoo bath.Ringworm treatment is hit and miss what works on one cat may not work on another. Ringworm infections are often self-limiting, clearing up in 6 to 8 weeks whether they are treated, or not. Vacuuming the house daily and changing the vacuum cleaner bag after each cleaning is supposed to be the most helpful thing for eliminating the fungal spores from the household. Cleaning any surfaces that can be cleaned with dilute chlorine bleach solution 1:10 is also supposed to be helpful. We had a outbreak at my shelter last year and this was the best treatment we found.

    I have had to deal with ringworm numerous times. With my first two cats, They caught it from a stray kitten I took in, and I caught it from them. My vet diagnosed it on me when I took one of the cats in, and told me to go to a drug store and get some athlete’s foot cream to treat it. I asked the druggist which was best, and he told me miconozol nitrate (Micotin). For the cats, she prescribed grizeofluvin. The Micotin worked great for me, but there was no change in the cats. Later, one of them died and I almost lost the other cat as well. Necropsy indicated he died of something akin to feline distemper, and yes, he was vaccinated. My vet was very puzzled, She saved his records, and several years later showed me an article in a vet journal suggesting that Grizeofluvin might lower the immune system. That MIGHT be why he died (inconclusive, but…) It wasn’t working anyway, so we dropped the grizeofluvin and treated my other cat with some topical liquid that I found out several years later was miconozol nitrate. That worked. More recently, I had a stubborn case on a cat and her persian type kittens. Miconozol only seems to come in a cream, which is a mess to rub into fur, or aerosol spray (NOT going to work on a cat!). A different vet put them on large doses of Program (oral flea/tick preventative). Every vet I’ve talked to either swears by it, or think it’s useless. Jury’s out on how effective, but it seemed to work for me, along with miconozol creme daily, medicated baths with Malaseb shampoo, and scrubbing the whole bathroom where they were kept with bleach water every time they had a bath to kill the spored in the environment. It took a while, but I FINALLY got rid of it. In taking to others about ringworm, I found out that Persians seem to be more susceptible to it. I suggest doing an internet search on ringworm in cats. A couple of days ago there was another question about ringworm on this site, and some suggested some interesting sites. I would also contact Persian rescues and ask them, since they have undoubtedly had to deal with it. One near me is
