JOliverio Welll!! Thor is officially free of ringworm and he is doing a lot better! And his quills are starting to grow back in from where he lost them! =D

JOliverio Well as of last week his ringworm culture is still negative, so that is good! =)

I was just potentially advised to change his diet in case he has a food allergy

Melanie G. One of my hedgehogs had ringworm and it took so long to clear- it was at least 3 months before it cleared entirely.
I feel your pain- I hate dealing with ringworm.

shetland Good news! Thanks for the update!

JOliverio Another update from last thursday june 12. The vet and all the techs said that he is looking better and potentially doing better. I was told to stop treating for ringworm for the time being while they send out another skin scrapping to determine if the ringworm is finally gone! Hopefully I will find out this week or next week! Hoping for good news

JOliverio Another update as of yesterday...He looks better than what he did when i first brought him into the vet..(the Vet agrees and so did all the technicians that saw him..which was all six of them..) I haven't found any chunks of skin/fur with quills attached when i have been cleaning out his cage.. I have found a few loose quills but not a large amount. He is still scratching every now and then.. He had a third and final dosage of revolution applied and he is still on medication for ringworm. And thus I have to go back in another two weeks...(Starting to think they just like taking my money ><)

shetland Thank you for the update on Thor.

JOliverio So its been a few weeks since starting treatment for ringworm and Thor received the two treatments for mites, however he is still losing some quills and has a few scabs/sores on his body...

He seems to be eating/drinking okay from what I can tell and only some slightly behavioral changes (hissing a bit more when handled(probably due to sores/syringie feeding medication) and digging/hiding himself underneath his wheel on the litter pan..)

I have to go back on May 29th for another check up visit and hopefully things start to clear up...
