Higher Bacterial and Fungal Disease

Higher bacteria and fungi affect cats with clinical signs and disease similar to those found in dogs. In cats, ringworm is certainly the most common fungal infection seen. Interestingly, many ringworm – infected cats display only subtle signs of infections, making them ideal transmitters of the disease to other pets in the household and to people!

A vaccine does exist for ringworm, yet its efficacy is questionable. Consult a veterinarian for recommendations regarding this mode of prevention.
