RingwormMy husband showed up with 2 spots below his left ear, they look like ringworms. I have seen ringworms before, and as the days go by, the more it favors them. We do not own a cat, but we have a Chesapeake Bay Retriever that seems to have a hotspot on his tail. Could this be a ringworm instead of a hotspot? I have reason to believe, that it maybe the cause of my husband having the suspicious looking ringworms. Please help.
Andrea Andrea, interesting question. I'm afraid I can't comment on your husbands condition, besides he wouldnt like size needles I use. As far as your chessie goes you vet can tell your dog has "ringworm". Some of the agents that cause ringworm(actually a fungus, not a worm) will "glow" when examined under a special light. Your vet may also pull a few hairs around the lesion and send them to the lab for culture. The good news is that the conditon is treatable in dogs, you're husbansd on the other hand...............
