Fluconazole is available by prescription only. Fluconazole is an antifungal used to treat systemic fungal infections, including those caused by cryptococcal meningitis, blastomycosis, and histpolasmosis. Fluconazole may also be used in treating fungal infections of the skin, such as superficial candidiasis and ringworm. Fluconazole treats infections of the central nervous system (CNS) effectively, as it can cross the blood-brain barrier. Fluconazole works by interfering with fungal cell membrane, inhibiting fungus growth and keeping the fungal cells from reproducing.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • Effective against ringworm
  • Treats serious fungal infections of the central nervous system (CNS) more effectively than many other antifungals
  • Has fewer side effects than most other antifungals
  • Treats a variety of internal and external fungal infections

How it works

Fluconazole is related to ketoconazole, but it is more successful in treating infections of the central nervous system (CNS) because it more effectively crosses the blood-brain barrier, allowing the medication to find its way to the infected areas of the body. When your pet takes fluconazole, the active ingredient within the medicine kills the fungus that causes infections by interfering with the cell membranes of the fungus. This inhibits growth of the fungus, which keeps the fungal cells from reproducing, and eventually eradicates the infection.

Storage:

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

  • Do not give fluconazole within 2 hours of giving antacids because it could affect the dosage your pet receives.
  • Give fluconazole to your pet with food and always make sure your pet has plenty of fresh water to drink while taking this medication.
