The kitten that glowed in the dark
Little Milo came in to see us as his owner noticed he had started to lose a heap of fur. He had circular patches of hair loss over his body. Our veterinarian had a suspicion of what might be wrong. To investigate, she switched off the light and looked at Milo's fur under a special UV light, and hoped that it didn't glow bright green. Unfortunately, Milo's fur fluroesce bright green which means she had ringworm.
Once Milo's hair had grown back we then had to confirm that the ringworm had been completely cleared with a follow up fungal culture. Luckily Milo was the only cat in the house so we didn't need to worry about any other animals getting infected. The environment was decontaminated with a disinfectant and Milo's ringworm cleared up. He looks much more handsome now that he isn't balding.
