Ringworm: Ringworm can be spread by other people as well as by dogs, cats, birds, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, rodents& rabbits.

Yes, they can: Keep in mind, though, that ringworm is a rash caused by a fungus. It is not a worm. It’s name comes from the shape and raised border of the circular shape as shown in the previous answer’s photo.
