Re: [Felvtalk] ringworm

2013-08-31 Thread Gloria B. Lane

I'm on Digest version of this list, and it's not easy to reply... but I learned 
about Gentian Violet when I was a kid, and it worked great for ringworm - mine 
was on my hand.  I've since used it on cats when appropriate and it worked.  I 
generally use Golden Seal tincture (from the health food store, about $8), as 
it works well and isn't purple.  But have used Malaseb shampoo and it worked 
well. I don't use Grisiofulvin since it's systemic, unless it's a bad case of 
ringworm - has a Persian like that so did use the Grisiofulvin.

I read up on Advantage Multi a while back, and didn't like some of the reports 
of it - so I never use Advantage Multi.

Cheers,

Gloria

 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.

Is it possible for one cat in a house of multiple cats to be positive when 
everyone else is negative and even parents and all other cats from its litter 
are negative.

Re: [Felvtalk] Positive cat

2013-08-31 Thread Lee Evans
If the cat was tested with the new triple test (FIV, FeLv and Heartworm) the 
heartworm test might screw up the results. However, no test is perfect. I 
remember someone gave an explanation as to why a negative cat would actually 
test positive a lot of the time. If that person is still here, please respond. 
What made you test the cat in the first place since everyone was negative?
