Hi everyone. My wife and I had Jake at her uncles house yesterday. He was oudoors all day and interacted a little with her sister's rat terrier. We came home and he had this spot on his inner left thigh. It doesn't seem to itch or anything. Do you guys think it is a bug bite or ringworm? If it is ringworm, what should we treat it with? i read on another forum that you can use athlete's foot cream or any other type of fungal cream. All help is appreciated. Thanks!

Umm really hard to say from the pics, but a Ringworm is a fungal infection that you can recognize in a dog exhibiting circular hair loss and scaly skin. Ringworm usually disappears by itself, although an antifungal medication MAY be effective. Anyways, puppies and dogs gets bumps, and are allergic to certain things just like humans, but to me NO it don't look like a Ringworm.

I think that it is just a bug bite. It doesn't look like ringworm. Are you sure that no one pulled off a tick it sorta looks like that. I would use anything on it just watch it and if it doesn't go away in a few days take her to the vets.

Thanks for all the comments and concerns. Jake is doing great. The spot is gone so it definately wasn't ringworm. I hope Buster gets well soon. :(

I'm glad that Jake is better. Buster looks a little better, but looks like it will need about a week maybe to clear up - not sure, never treated a canine for ringworm.:flush:

I had ringworm on my neck and I dont know where the hell it came from but it itched soo bad. Antifungal cream does work but we used something else (my hubby's mom is a nursing assitant) it was some yellow liquid and it stunk! But I'd have to say I went crazy when I had it! lol

always a good possibility... I thought that humans get ringworm from actual worms that live in standing water? (puddles ect) I could be wrong... thats wut my my my momma says lol
