    The Woods Lamp is a lightweight, ultra-violet light used to detect ringworm or the presence of a fungal infection. When an area on the skin is infected with Tinea, a type of ringworm fungus, the fungus will glow under the light of the Woods Lamp. Ringworm is a highly contagious infection which can lead to hair loss on dogs. It can quickly spread to other animals and humans as well. If ringworm is detected, immediate treatment is necessary.

    Woods Lamp

    I was immediately taken aback by the apparent "cheapness" of this made in China product. It reminded me of the favors you get for less than a dollar a piece to be handled out at parties (Dollar Store stuff). I immediately figured I would return it. Like the previous review here, it was a challenge just to get the batteries in and get it working. I held it over a number of things, including a litter pan and nothing glowed, so if urine in a litter box didn't light up, I'm guessing it doesn't work properly. After a "live chat" about returns, I am told that because it is opened and "contaminated" it cannot be returned. I would not have bought it if I had known that. My opinion is that anything that is not returnable, that fact should be posted right with the description of the product, or as it comes up on your order, and this was not. I checked the return policy after the conversation and this item is not listed with other items that cannot be returned, like vaccines.

    Is everything "made in China?"

    Well, the lamp does work, but for nearly $40 dollars I was disappointed in the overall quality.

    Cheap plastic that really doesn't look like much more than a dollar store regular flashlight. Instructions that are rudimentary English at best. Hope you know how to load batteries - which are 4 in number, not the 2, the instructions state - or you'll be trying every combination under the sun.

    Maybe some US company can create a black-lite bulb that will fit into any flash light and save us all some money.
