Fluconazole is an antifungal medication used to treat several systemic infections and is also useful for yeast infections of the skin and nails beds. Often fluconazole is used to treat infections in the urinary tract or infections of the central nervous system. Fluconazole works by disrupting the cell wall of the fungus and causing its structure to be inadequate to maintain life.
Depending on the infection being treated, therapy may last several weeks to a few months. It is important to finish the treatment course set by your veterinarian. Your pet may appear better but may require continuing treatment. If you miss giving your pet a dose and it is close to the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue on your normal routine.
