Our Biggest Need Currently
Treatment of a cat with ringworm is normally 3 weeks to 3 months. Cats tend to recover faster in the kind of loving, low-stress environment that only a home can provide! Treatment involves a daily fungal spray, oral medication and a weekly lime dipping to help kill and control the spores. Though it may feel like a lot of hard work, ringworm is totally curable, non-lethal, and not nearly as scary as it seems at first. Since these cats are routinely euthanized in other shelters, your choice to foster them saves lives!
