CONTROLS RINGWORM IN ANIMALS

ABOUT RINGWORM
Ringworm is a contagious fungal infection that occurs in all species of animals.  Ringworm is not associated with worms, the name is derived from a characteristic red ring that appears in the infected area.  

WHAT CAUSES RINGWORM?
Ringworm is caused by an infection of the hair and surface layers of the skin by a spore forming fungi. Spores germinate and attack the shafts of the hair and the surface layers of the skin. Exudate, from the damaged skin, mixes with debris from skin and hair and forms a crusty scab. Typically, the ringworm scab is gray and white and higher than the surrounding skin. Infection spreads from the center outwards and results in the circular lesion 1 to 2 inches in diameter. Adjacent lesions may overlap and create larger infected areas. Generally, ringworm lesions appear on the head and neck, but, in severe cases, ringworm may be found over the entire body . 

Some animals have a natural immunity that prevents the development of ringworm lesions but they to can be a source of infection. Ringworm can be severe in confined animal operations during the winter. Generally, ringworm is less prevalent  in the spring and summer. Ringworm is contagious before lesions appear. 

Animals can become infected with ringworm by
Natural ringworm treatment Direct contact with infected animals.
Ringworm is a fungal infection Contact with infected objects or surfaces.
Treating ringworm in animals Contact with infected soil

PREVENTION
To limit outbreaks of ringworm (1) reduce animal density (2) increase exposure to sunlight (3) ensure corrals and barns are clean and dry (4) spray corrals, barns,  feed apparatus, halters, grooming equipment etc.  with EC-4000.  At the first sign of ringworm (lesions) on animals, commence treatment using TC-344.
