Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am the veterinarian. This could be ringworm but may be a bacterial infection that will clear up with antibiotics. In order to determine that you would still need to go to see your vet. There are over the counter products that can help with ringworm but if it ends up being a bacterial infection they will not work.

Can I get a prescription for cavan ox please?
Expert:  John Clark replied 6 months ago.

It is impossible to do that without a client-patient-relationship. You can call your veterinarian and ask them to call in a prescription for amoxicillin to a local pharmacy. That is a relatively cheap if not free medication that may be enough to deal with superficial pyoderrma. However, they may ask to see your dog first to try and differentiate between ringworm and pyoderma.
