Topical shampoo treatment is used in approximately each case, particularly in longer haired animals. It is useful to cut all or some of the hair in several pets so that they can't get infected by such fungus. This treatment will get rid of infected hair that can create infection in both animals and people.

Specific creams are also used when pets gets infected. Some of these medications are:
