Postby pat » Wed Jun 07, 2006 10:28 am

Steven (my mini donkey) had some type of sore on his face..
I noticed when I first got him, he had a real small sore, I thought it was a sore when he fell out of the truck.. at the time, it was about the size of a quarter.... now, it is getting bigger.. I also noticed Hazel has a little spot that looks like it...

if anyone can tell me what this is, I would much appreciate it..
My vet quit making house calls, I can't seem to find a vet that will make a house call.. if I have to, I will take my donkeys to the my vet..

thanks,

if you are looking for a vet to come to the house my vet does house calls all over the tri-state area ...mobile vet clinic,839st rt 168,southbeaver,pa 16115,724-843-5443 they are very nice and reasonable

yes ring worm does spread and is very contagios my 5 year old acctually picked it up at school last year the dr gave her a cream to put on it and everything went away it takes a little tme but it isn't a major pain to get rid of
repect nature and enjoy all that it offers

Our cows get it from time to time. I know that is one of the things the vet checks for when we take them to the county fair-if they have ringworm they get sent home. That way it doesn't spread to other peoples cows.

You could try calling your vet and seeing if they will prescribe something without seeing the animal. Ringworm is sort of common.

I cleaned it with iodine. then put some type of solution on for ring worm.
the bottle said to apply 2-3 times a week until it is noticibly clearing up.

I bought this stuff at agway(farm supply store) so I will see if this helps.

If it don't help, I will call the vet and have them perscribe something.
if all else fails, I will have a vet come here..

thanks all for help..

wici's mom,

what all animals does he do?I remember having a mobile vet come here a while back for one of my female llamas that was very very sick.
he came on a saturday night.. He didn't do much for her, but, he did try.
I can't remember where he was from or even his name..

wonder if that is the same one..

thanks much for info, I will give them a call.
are they very expensive?

We had goats get it on their ears had to peel the scabs, toss them away in a bay so they don't spread then treat with iodine after.

But that looks like rain rot. Looks and acts like fungus but is a bacteria so same thing but be sure to dry the area then cover in nolvosan cream. The vet could also give pencilen to help oit heal faster too.

Again - know I'm chiming in months after the fact but in western states at high elevation horses, et al get "scratches" - a reaction to white pigmented fur and broad leaved plants like alfalfa. Back east (I'm originally from NJ but don't tell anyone... ha!) a fungus will grow on socks and other white spots when it's damp ("rain rot"). We used both what the vet would give us but also a little watered down tea tree oil to kill the fungus. Tea Tree Oil works on darn near everything!
