Me too. Day 2 of the Intrafungol. So far all good. I'm honestly surprised Spencer didn't catch it from Benson since he's Immuno-compromised.

I've used Intrafungol for ringworm. It knocked it right out, and I didn't see any side effects. Another time I treated it with topical over the counter stuff and it was a real battle that lingered. First 2 of mine got it. Months later the 3rd got, but then I changed to fleece and C&C.

Woke up to Spencer having a spot of ringworm on his ear 😫😫. I was hoping he wouldn't get it. They've been on intrafungol for a week so hopefully it clears quickly.

Just wanted to give an update. Spencer is continuing doing well. He and his brothers saw Santa this past weekend 😊

Thanks for the update, and hooray for Santa! I'm sure they all asked Santa for more fresh veggies and free run of the house!

I was feeling his chin because he didn't have much oozing out of the little hole. I usually have to clean a lot off. So I was looking to make sure the little hole was still open...pressing gently and some watery pus came out. It's always been thick so this is odd. Is this something I should call the vet about or just keep an eye on? Wondering if it was different because I've been using warm compresses on it the past few days? I know he's always gonna have the infection and im grateful that little hole never closed so it can drain and not abscess again...but I'm paranoid mom when it comes to him.

Personally, I would give the vet a call, just to be on the safe side.

I sent him an email as he's always in surgery all morning and will get back to me in the afternoon. It didn't bother him. Still eating and running around as we speak. He's still a chunky boy too lol

It's probably okay, but with the holidays coming up, I would feel better (if it were me) to make doubly sure.

Me too! And you know I'm paranoid mom when it comes to Spencer lol.

I'll unfortunately be at the vets office New Years Eve to put their canine sister to sleep ☹. She's 13 and the cancer has become too aggressive for her to fight ☹

Wishing you and Spencer well, and I’m so sorry about your dog with cancer. I’ve been there and understand how difficult it can be to do what’s best.

Thank you ❤

So far Spencer's draining os back to his normal, thicker pus. I have not heard back from the vet yet...I'll keep an eye on it. Spencer is patiently waiting for Santa Paws lol


I hope everyone has a great holiday!

Heard back from the vet. He said a change in consistency is a good sign. He didn't say why though. He said wants to keep Spencer out of his operatory as long as possible.

Believe me. For Spencer and my wallet...I am too lol

Hoping it is indeed a good sign! I am sure you will keep a close watch on it for changes or signs it may be becoming more infected again.
