Why has my veterinarian prescribed Ketoconazole Antifungal Tablets?

  • Generally, this medication needs to be given over a long period. Plan ahead to ensure you have the refills you need.

 

 

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.

 

Contact your veterinarian if you miss giving doses two or more days in a row.
