The dermatologist who spoke to my husband was not exactly clear about the condition so today I spoke to Dr. Angus and the news are a bit different. They do not know which kind of dermatophyte is involved, because the fungal culture did not grow anything, most likely because Sneaky was already on Fluconazole. So, they do not now if it is contagious or not and the treatment for deep infections can last for 12 months, where milder conditions require 2 to 4. She is already responding to the two drugs combination so hopefully we won't have to go that long.So, Sneaky has to wear babysocks to prevent any shedding and she needs fungal cultures to be negative 3 times in a row (one a month) to make sure this crappy thing is gone. I am monitoring the other dogs and I vacuum like crazy daily, so hopefully nobody gets anything.
This is what my house looks these days, a place for recovering rejects.
