Ringworm - a fungal infection Owner Factsheet

Contributor(s): Beatrice Funiciello, Jennifer Hamlin

Ringworm is a fungus that can cause superficial skin lesions and hair loss, but sometimes it may not show any clinical signs at all. While ringworm is usually quite easy to treat, it is highly contagious. Transmission to other animals and humans is possible so it is very important to confirm the diagnosis if ringworm is suspected, and to prevent environmental spreading as much as possible.
