Fluconazole (Generic) Tablets for Dogs and Cats Why has my veterinarian prescribed Fluconazole tablets? Your veterinarian has prescribed Fluconazole to treat ringworm or another fungal infection. How do I give Fluconazole tablets? First, READ THE LABEL CAREFULLY. Give Fluconazole to your pet as directed by your veterinarian. Fluconazole may be given with or without food. Give this medication for as long as prescribed by your veterinarian, even if it seems that your pet is feeling better. This will help to ensure the infection is completely cleared up. DO NOT give your pet more medicine than directed. DO NOT give your pet medicine more often than prescribed. Try not to miss giving any doses. If I miss a dose, what do I do? If you miss a dose, give it to your pet as soon as possible. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose, then continue with the regular dosing schedule. Do not give your pet two doses at once. How do I store Fluconazole tablets? Keep this medicine out of reach of children. Store this medicine at room temperature in a dry, cool place.

Contact your veterinarian if you notice a rash or if your pet has lost its appetite and is tired. Other side effects may occur. If you notice anything unusual, contact your veterinarian. What about possible drug interactions? Be sure to tell your veterinarian about any other medications or supplements you are giving your pet. It’s not uncommon for your veterinarian to prescribe two different medications, which may cause a drug interaction to occur.
