 Actually, ringworm is self limiting.  The cats lose fur, their immune system 
 kicks in if they are relatively healthy and the hair loss stops, the little 
 whorls heal up and cat is good to go again. But if you like a messy, greasy 
 cat, ask your vet about the athletes foot cream.

 it didn't help much. Sadistic male gynecologists.

 Hi,  I'm even older than you... I'm 80 and in the 1940's when I
 had ringworm, the treatment was just alcohol. I remember screaming
 when my mom put alcohol on my ringworm because it burned so much. It
 got rid of the stuff tho.  Medicine didn't taste good in those days
 either.  We got castor oil, and all sorts of awful tasting remedies.
 
 BTW go for the purple hair. My hair is thin too, so maybe I'll try
 it :-)

Re: [Felvtalk] Sense of smell and food

 When they are kittens at less than a year old they eat like 
 little pigs. They slow down in growth then and eat less, however
 some FelV cats just start eating less and less and waste away.
 You are wise to weigh her and pay attention to how much she eats.
 
 I have not noticed any of my FelV cat losing their sense of smell,
 unless they have a URI.  Are her nose runny or eyes runny?  If not 
 just keep a close watch on her,and if any symptoms appear take her
 to your vet.

 Hi everyone,
 
 I have two questions regarding Kitty, our one year old FeLV+. Since she
 turned one year old, she has become less responsive to food or is less
 food oriented. Up to two months ago, she would drop everything to eat and
 get very excited about food, she would gulp her food down but now she eats
 a little and then walks away and then returns. Sometimes she eats more and
 sometimes she eats less and she has off days for eating. Is that normal? I
 know her weight is stable as I have a baby scale and I weight her monthly.
 My second question is regarding her sense of smell, which seems to be
 slightly off.  A few times I have left her food or a few treats and she
 seems to not to see it or find it. Do cats with FeLV have that?
 
 Thanks,
 
 Mally and Kitty

Re: [Felvtalk] ringworm

2013-08-26 Thread Catherine Chang
Hi felv friends,

I was away from emails for several days, so I am not sure whether bathing
options has been mentioned in this thread about ringworm. If they been
mentioned, please skip this email. If not, here they are:

I know 2 shampoos can eliminate ringworm very effectively by just bathing
the cat (or just his/her infected area) twice a week.

1. Malaseb shampoo: it contains 2% Miconazole which can treat ringworm very
effectively. It is available on Amazon.
2. Nizoral Shampoo: it is a human dandruff shampoo made with Ketoconazole.
The 1% version can be obtained in drug stores. Although taking Ketoconazole
by mouth could make cat lethargy, such side effect is less seen when only
using it by bathing as far as I know. There is also a pet version of 2%
Ketoconazole shampoo, but you will need a prescription to get that.

hope it helps.
