  • You first notice because the cat loses its fur in one area.

  • The cat will itch like crazy and they will have a red, slightly raise ring or a few. Take a fecal sample to your vet to test and they can give you the medicine. Treat now and treat aggressively it is contagious to humans.

  • Its not really a worm. Its a fungus, so it wouldn't be in a fecal sample lol... They take skin scraping. But the cat would be itchy and have hair loss. Sometimes it glows under a black light.
