My vet called today and said that my dog has ringworm, they did a test or something as I took him in on monday. The vet gave me a 1:50 solution that I could dilute with water and sprayed the location and the rest of the dog / couch and so on.

Is there anything else I can do .... I am a hypochondriac and am having certain issues with my dog walking around and everything. I spray everything with Lysol or whatever that has bleach in it and sometimes its hard to breathe to that point.

I don't know if the spray does anything. Anyone else have any other suggestions? PLEASE HELP!

we have had this dog for 4 months and I have spent 1500 -2000 .... I cannot afford anymore to visit the vet. I am at my wits end and gf is upset so I hope we can find something that can be worked out.

Where did you get the dog from? What other illnesses have you had to deal with?

Did the vet give you anything to treat the DOG with? Ringworm is HIGHLY contagious, so you need to be sure you use the proper precautions when handling the dog (wear latex or Nitrelle gloves when applying medicine to the infected area), have some anti fungal on hand in case you get it too (yes, you can get it as well as any other mammal or bird in the house) Terriamicin or Lotriman Ointment works well in the early stages (the high potency foot creams). The vet should have given you an antifungal shampoo to treat with or if it's only a small spot, a cream.

The vet gave me some solution to dilute and mix with water and spray the area on him its about as efficient as spraying him with water after a whole week. He has had kennel cough, demidex, adoption fee, neutering, and something with his poo cant remember the name. Can I get some lotriman from like the store and put it on him?

We adopted him from a shelter.
