Why should I treat my pet for skin infections?
Skin infections (both bacterial and fungal) can be extremely uncomfortable. They are frustrating for both pets and owners alike, and will often keep both awake long into the night with incessant chewing and licking, which only makes matters worse for the poor animal.
Additionally, some skin conditions, notably Ringworm, can be a zoonotic disease. This means we can contract the condition from contact with our pets. Children, or people with poor immune systems (including the elderly) are most prone to this. The sooner it is brought under control the better it is for all involved.
It is advisable to seek an opinion from a veterinarian before commencing management, because they may want to use a systemic drug, such as an antifungal or an antibiotic, in combination with the wash.
