Do all pet health plans cover ringworm and parasite prevention treatments?

Ringworms in Dogs

Ringworms is a skin disease caused by a fungus. Vets sometimes treat them with topical treatments, or with tablets. Both can cure the disease quickly and effectively. People can get ringworms too, and dogs and cats can infect each other.

Be aware that some pet health plans do not cover preventative care for parasites and ringworm. Double check that your pet health plan covers ringworm and parasites. Some companies offer this coverage in a "wellness package" add-on.

It may take up to two weeks for the treatment to begin to eradicate this skin disease, so be patient with treatment and don't look for overnight results.
