Home-Based Ringworm Treatment Protocol for Kitten Foster Programs
Because ringworm is zoonotic (transmissible to humans) taking on ringworm-positive foster kittens can be scary for many foster families. Having a strong foster-based ringworm treatment protocol in place can help your foster families feel more comfortable while also ensuring their kittens are treated and socialized safely and effectively.
Please note, these protocols were created for a foster-based program based in Los Angeles, California, whose population is primarily kittens over four weeks who eat well on their own. These protocols were created prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, and changes have since been made to the program to accommodate current social distancing best practices. Consult your local regulations and program veterinarian for insight on how to customize this protocol to best fit your organization’s state regulations and specific circumstances.
