Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. I would be bathing the other dog with the medicated shampoo at the same time. The amoxicillin won't help with ringworm. Your vet probably prescribed that in case there is a secondary bacterial infection. Make sure you clean all bedding very well. Use bleach if possible. You can also clean floors with a bleach solution. Just make sure you get one that is safe if you have a porous surface. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.

What about our clothing after we hold hi
Expert:  Dr. John replied 1 year ago.

I wouldn't say that it needs to be bleached daily. I would clean every thing very well at first, then do it on a monthly basis with bleach. I would clean any clothes with bleach or color safe bleach that come into contact with the pup. Decontaminating is most important while starting treatment. Let me know if you have further concerns.
