Are animals still active and playful when they have ringworm? Do they also maintain a healthy diet?

Ringworm is a skin condition that rarely effects the diet or activity levels of an animal.  Ringworm can be caused in many species but is most common in cats.  Here is an article about the disease focused on cats, but the much of the article holds true for other species as well:  https://www.vetbabble.com/cats/health-cats/ringworm-in-cats-signs-treatment/

As mentioned, ringworm rarely causes an impact on things such as diet or activity levels, but it can be spread to people, so if you are concerned that your animal has ringworm and you see any concerning lesions on yourself, be sure to visit a doctor to ensure you get the appropriate therapy.
