Abstract: A study was undertaken to determine the antifungal activity of Ivermectin in ringworm infection in Malnad Gidda cow. Skin scraping collected from the cow which showed circumscribed erythematous grayish-white crusty lesions on the body. Direct Microscopic examination of scrapings using Lactophenol cotton blue revealed macroconidia of Trichophyton species. Four doses of Ivermectin were administered subcutaneously at seven days interval. Apparently there was 80% improvement in the condition after ivermectin administration. This study indicated that Ivermectin is used for the treatment of dermatophytosis in cattle instead of local or parenteral antifungal drugs.
