Both of my cats have ringworm and I treated them for it in May. It came back and now we’re doing a more rigorous regimen, which includes the lime-sulfur dips, expensive oral medicine, steam cleaning, etc. I can’t afford to have my vet’s clinic dip them every week for 6 weeks to two cats, but I’m scared of it staining everything. They are indoor cats–doing it outside is not an option, so I’m looking for some personal experience in the best way to go about this without ruining everything I own. Where is the BEST place to do lime-sulfur dips? In the bathroom/bathtub? In the garage? In the kitchen? I have linoleum in the kitchen, tile/porcelain in the bathroom, and my garage is concrete, all of which I believe are considered to be “porous” surfaces and might get stained. I have a big dog crate that I’m going to let them dry out in. They are 7 and 9 months old, an exotic and a himalayan, and they currently are bald b/c I trimmed all their fur off so I could see the patches of fungus better. Any advice on how to efficiently administer these dips would be great!
If you look at Pets Best RX web site you will see that their lime sulfur is not actually a dip, but more of a cream which you rub on the ringworm patches. It is white and smells a bit like tea tree oil. I had a Persian with ringworm and used this on her. It is wonderful stuff. I also used the healing and protection spray and the disinfectant spray around the room she was being kept in. The cream dries to a crust which suffocates the spores and also stops them from entering your environment and reinfecting the cats again. The company has a 24 hour help line if you need it.
I really would recommend it. I live in the UK and had to pay almost double to get it shipped over, but I am never without it now. You can use the healing and protection spray on yourself if you ever get scratched or bitten and I use the disinfectant spray on my cats litter trays each week.
