I adopted a little bitty kitty- 6weeks old- about 4 days ago. We already have a one year old cat named Cookie that is perfectly healthy and large.
We were advised to keep the two separated until I could get the kitten to the vet for a check-up, so for the most part we did. I took the kitten in 2 days after we got her. Wasn't too hard, because Cookie growls and hisses at the mere thought of little Ellie sharing his house.
We found that she has ringworm on one ear, just a small patch. And she has conjunctivitis in both eyes.
I'm giving her a powdered antibiotic once a day, ointment in her eyes and cream for the ringworm, both once or twice a day.
My question is, should I be bleaching her bedding every day? (We have her in a large Pet Porter for the next several weeks.)
And the vet didn't mention this, but I was reading that dipping her in LymDip should be the first part of her treatment, plus
I wish I knew what the best course of action would be. i really don't want any of my kids or our other cat to get the ringworm!
