Miconazole Nitrate Lotion 1% is an anti-fungal topical prescribed by veterinarians for the treatment of fungal skin and yeast infections in dogs and cats. This easy-to-apply spray is also effective on ringworm and provides relief to your pets within two weeks.
Miconazole works by clearing fungal infection thanks to antifungal agents when applied directly to the skin. It should clear the infection in 2 weeks or less. If that does not occur, contact your veterinarian.
Miconazole Nitrate Lotion and Spray is indicated for the treatment of fungal infections in dogs and cats caused by Microsporum canis, Microsporum gypseum and Trichophyton mentagrophytes.
Accurate diagnosis of the infecting organism is essential. Identification should be made either by direct microscopic examination of a mounting of infected tissue in a solution of potassium hydroxide, or by culture on an appropriate medium.
Lotion: Apply a light covering of Miconazole Nitrate Lotion to affected areas, once daily, for 2 to 4 weeks. Application is best accomplished using a gauze pad or cotton swab. Medication must be continued until the infecting organism is completely eradicated as indicated by appropriate clinical or laboratory examination. If no improvement is noticed within 2 weeks, diagnosis should be re-evaluated. Difficult cases may require treatment for 6 weeks.
Spray: Spray affected areas from a distance of 2 to 4 inches to apply a light covering, once daily for 2 to 4 weeks. Medication must be continued until the infecting organism is completely eradicated as indicated by appropriate clinical or laboratory examination. If no improvement is noticed within 2 weeks, diagnosis should be re-evaluated. Difficult cases may require treatment for 6 weeks.
General measures in regard to hygiene should be observed to control sources of infection or reinfection. Clipping of hair around and over the sites of infection should be done at the start of treatment and again as necessary.
Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
In the event of sensitization or irritation due to Miconazole Nitrate Lotion and Spray, treatment should be discontinued. Avoid contact with eyes, since irritation may result. Wash hands thoroughly after administration to avoid spread of fungal infection.
