,<br>: I read on some discussion page that someone that used Crest toothpaste with success<p>Crest toothpaste works well for ringworm, especially around the eyes, but don't get it in the eyes. For some reason, other brands don't work. It causes the immune system to recognize the fungus as foreign and kill it off. Good Luck<br>V

I have heard that you can topically apply the stuff in the oral application tube for internal worms. Been told it works great when applied topically to the ringworm area. What do you think Vet Vicki, will it work?<br> <p> : How many times do you do this a day/week???<p>: Usually once, scrub in with toothbrush which you will NEVER use again....scrub in so scales are off, not down to bleeding....and that's it, you're done.

Ok, so you're talking topical application of an oral dewormer?? The three main oral dewormers are pyrantel pamoate +/- oxantel pamoate, ivermectin (equvalan for horses, not for ruminants) and febantel (panacur) Without going into a massive research on the topic, my guess would be ineffective topically (due to the relative difficulty of getting drugs across cattle skin) but you are welcome to contact any of the companies marketing the products to find out for sure. http://www.google.com will have the addresses of any drug co. I'm sure! And, no, you wouldn't want to be in my neighbourhood--2 feet of snow, beautiful sunny day, about 5F....well, maybe you would! Take care, Joyeux Noel!<br>V
