Q.How Can I Get Rid Of Ringworm In Soil?

Zone Paphos, Cyprus | Anonymous added on November 18, 2022 | Answered

Hi, My rabbit was recently diagnosed with ringworm. She has had the vaccine now but I am concerned that the ringworm spores are in the soil and may be transferred to me or my visitors. Could you please advise whether there is any natural/organic product that would help. I understand that perhaps a fertiliser with sulphur would do it? It must be a product that is safe for pets. Many thanks, Julie.

Since the ringworm fungi are present all over the environment, including soil, it wouldn't be practical to try to get rid of it in all of the soil.

Preventing your rabbit from having direct contact with soil is the best defense, as well as keeping its living area clean and avoiding other animals with an active infection.
