Ketoconazole (Generic) Antifungal Tablets and Cream for Dogs and Cats

Ketoconazole is commonly used to treat systemic fungal infections and can also be used to reduce the doses and costs of cyclosporine treatment by interfering with cyclosporine drug metabolism. Treatment may be required for a longer period of time to get rid of the fungal infection. Ketoconazole may also reduce the synthesis of the male hormone testosterone. As a result, infertility may result from ketoconazole therapy in male dogs.

Adverse Effects:

 

  • Vomiting
  • Anorexia
  • Diarrhea
  • Reversible lightening of hair

 

Side effects may be reduced if giving ketoconazole in divided doses or with meals. Talk to your pet's veterinarian before changing any aspect of your pet’s medication regimen.

When given at lower concentrations for shorter periods of time, ketoconazole may only inhibit the growth of the fungus and not kill the fungus. It is necessary to use the dosing regimen prescribed by your pet's veterinarian to obtain optimal therapy. At higher doses, ketoconazole acts as a fungicidal agent which will kill the fungus.

Ketoconazole may also interact with other medications. Talk to your pet's veterinarian today regarding any medications, supplements, or herbal products you may be giving your pet. If your pet requires antacids, administer ketoconazole 1 hour before or at least 2 hours after giving an antacid. (i.e. omeprazole, ranitidine, etc.)

It is important to give your pet this medication exactly as prescribed and to not discontinue the drug without consulting with the veterinarian. If you miss giving your pet the dose, give it to him as soon as you remember. If it is close to the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue on your normal schedule. If you are unsure about when to give a missed dose, contact your pet's veterinarian.

  • Q:

    Will giving my dog, Yorkie, 13 lbs., only 1/4 of a Ketoconazole pill twice a day help her with yeast infection?
    Asked on 2/15/2015 by Llottielyn from Sacramento, CA, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Ketoconazole is an azole antifungal medication commonly used to treat a variety of systemic fungal infections. The type and severity of fungal infection will determine the dose, frequency of administration and duration of therapy in your dog. In general, a 50mg dose of ketoconazole twice daily for a 13 lb dog would fall into an acceptable range of dosing depending on the diagnosis from your veterinarian. It is important to report any adverse events and keep all laboratory appointments if ordered by your veterinarian.

    • A:

      Ketoconazole generally causes adverse effects such as loss of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea, so the lack of appetite and thirst may be caused from the extra dose. Monitor your pet’s symptoms and inform your dog's veterinarian as soon as you are able to do so.

    Do I need a prescription to buy this product?
    Asked on 2/23/2014 by Penny from San Francisco, CA, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Yes, Ketoconazole is a prescription drug requiring authorization from your pet's veterinarian. You can identify prescription drugs on our site by looking for the orange Rx symbol next to the product's name on product pages.

  • Q:

    I have a dog with a nose bleed for 2 months now, co cindamicyn, not working. Second opinion today suggested the infection may be fungal, will ketoconazole work?
    Asked on 11/20/2013 by Catherine

    1 answer

    • A:

      Catherine,

      Ketoconazole is an antifungal drug, however determining if it would be effective in your dog’s case would require having a veterinarian diagnose the infection and choosing the best course of therapy.

      Thank you,

Comments about Mylan Ketoconazole:

Ketaconazole has been going up in price lately. The last time I checked Vet Rx Direct had a lower price per tablet than my Vet. I recommend buying this product on line from VetRxDirect.com
