Dog Symptoms for Ringworm

If you see these signs you know your dog is infested with ringworm.

Signs of ringworm are typically circular patches of broken hair in ring-like whirls. These areas usually treat at their centers, growing darker than normal hair. Surrounding this darkened area is a band of inflamed, reddened skin within which the hair is also broken off short. The most common areas for ringworm to occur are the face, ear tips, tail and paws. When these areas are examined with an ultraviolet light source the broken hair shafts often fluoresce.

In the few cases where the lesions are itchy, the skin is crusty, bumpy and infected with bacteria. Ringworm of the body shows up as a flat, round patch anywhere on the skin except for the scalp and feet. The groin is a common area of infection (groin Ringworm). As the rash gradually expands, its center clears to produce a ring. More than one patch might appear, and the patches can overlap. The area is sometimes itchy.
