Can my pet get sick from ringworm

Sometimes your pet can get sick from ringworm which depends on the severity of the ringworm infection. Having ringworm can cause your pet’s immune system to become impaired. This will make them more susceptible to getting some sort of staph infection.

Treating ringworm symptoms as soon as they occur can help to lower the chance of your pet becoming ill from ringworm. There are ways that you can try to prevent ringworm from spreading. It is important to make sure the germ bacteria and fungus is not passed around. One way to do this is disinfecting your home. Ringworm is highly contagious. Humans can catch ringworm from animals or from object that have come in contact with the ringworm fungus spores.
