puppy exposed to dog with ringworm?? advice please!

Hello!

My lil Ollie is 3 months old (yesterday) and 2 weeks shy of his last puppy shots. This morning, our neighbor's dog (who Ollie has played with a couple of times in the last day or 2) was diagnosed with Ringworm -- HOLY MOLY. As a protective mommy, I'm seeking advice on what I should do??

He's already had his deworming and seems in wonderful health. I checked him all over and didn't find a sign of anything and will bathe him tomorrow and check once more. Should I be more/less concerned?? Is it too early to check it out at the vet & do I need to do that ASAP??

I'm going to keep him away from that dog for at least a while obviously but is there more I should do??

Any advice appreciated! Thanks!!

When my foster kitties get ringworm we dip them in 1 part bleach to 32 parts water. Bleach kills ringworm so it's very effective.
