Subject: ringworm questions


Our ferret club routinely has a picnic every year. We are
using a new shelter that has a sand volleyball pit included.
One of our club members said she's heard of children catching
ringworm from the sand in sand boxes. Do we have to worry
about this? Is there anything we can do to lower any risks?
Should we bathe our ferrets in anything special before or
after the picnic to lessen risks?

Any information you can supply us would be gratefully

Hi Dr. Williams, I enjoyed meeting you at Ferrets 2000 and
interacting w/ you online about my little Eponine. Thanks for
continuing to help all of us, it is much appreciated!
