Q. How do you cure a dog from a ringworm infection

A. Confirm the diagnosis with your veterinarian. If it is a small, isolated area, it may resolve on its own or with a topical OTC antifungal treatment. If not, your pet may require systemic antifungal medication. Ringworm is transmissible to humans, so practice proper hygiene until the condition is resolved.
