Terbinafine is a medication used to treat fungal infections especially those of the skin, hair, and nails in cats and dogs. It works by stopping the growth of fungal cells and killing those fungal cells.
Terbinafine is very well tolerated, but may be associated with a few side effects. If vomiting is an issue, give terbinafine with food. Giving with food can reduce the chance of vomiting and upset stomach.
