Animal Humane treats ringworm in strays successfully

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Animal Humane New Mexico says a new tool to fight a fungal infection in homeless animals is already paying off.

Many shelters actually have to euthanize for ringworm which is highly contagious.

In the past animal humane hasn’t been able to treat it.

That’s not the case anymore.

Judith, the kitten, is the first graduate of a ringworm treatment program at animal humane.

In animal humane’s new cat house, there’s an isolated treatment room with its own ventilation system.

Cats with ringworm are brought there, until the fungus is gone.

Several other cats are undergoing treatment right now. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
