An Itchy Situation

If you notice your pets scratching more than usual, they may be hosting unwelcome visitors.

Lice and ringworm are two common, unpleasant hitchhikers. Both can cause your pets to itch and scratch, but they have more individual symptoms that set them apart from one another.

Ringworm is a fungus that leads to hair loss and scaly patches of skin on your pets' heads, ears, paws and limbs. It is easily transmitted to other animals and humans.

Lice can cause your pets' hair to appear matted and unkempt. Though lice can be transferred from dog to dog and cat to cat, they do not move from one species to another.
