This photograph depicts a veterinary clinician in the process of examining the fur of a domestic cat for signs of a possible Microsporum canis fungal infection. At this point, he was performing what is known as a Wood’s lamp examination of the animal’s fur. If infected, when the hairs are examined using a Wood's ultra-violet light, they will fluoresce a bright greenish-yellow.
