Is human Fluconazole safe for dogs?
Answer

Fluconazole (brand name Diflucan) is commonly prescribed to prevent and treat various fungal and yeast infections in humans. While fluconazole is not FDA-approved for animals, it may still be prescribed by veterinarians for off-label use. Off-label use refers to the use of a medication in a manner that is not specifically approved by the FDA but is within the professional judgment of the veterinarian. Veterinarians may prescribe fluconazole off-label for dogs based on their knowledge and experience with the medication, as well as the specific needs of the individual animal. They may consider factors such as the severity of the fungal infection, the response to other antifungal medications, and the overall health condition of the dog.

What is Fluconazole 100 mg used for dogs?
Answer

Fluconazole, in a 100 mg dosage, is commonly used in veterinary medicine for the treatment of certain fungal infections in dogs. It is an antifungal medication that belongs to the class of drugs known as azoles. Fluconazole works by inhibiting the growth and spread of fungi by interfering with their cell membranes. Fluconazole can be used to treat systemic fungal infections that affect various organs and tissues in the dog's body, including the lungs, central nervous system, skin, and others. Cryptococcosis is a fungal infection caused by Cryptococcus neoformans or Cryptococcus gattii. Fluconazole is often used as part of the treatment regimen for this condition. Blastomycosis is a fungal infection caused by the organism Blastomyces dermatitidis. Fluconazole can be used as part of the treatment plan for this systemic fungal infection. Histoplasmosis is caused by the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum. Fluconazole may be prescribed as part of the treatment protocol for dogs with histoplasmosis.

Is Fluconazole better than ketoconazole for dogs?
Answer

Both fluconazole and ketoconazole are antifungal medications commonly used in veterinary medicine to treat fungal infections in dogs. However, their effectiveness can vary depending on the specific fungal infection being treated and the individual dog's response. Fluconazole is generally more effective against yeast infections, such as Candida species, and certain dimorphic fungi like Histoplasma. On the other hand, ketoconazole has a broader spectrum of activity and can be effective against a wider range of fungal species, including dermatophytes (ringworm) and some molds. Fluconazole is well-absorbed when taken orally and has good tissue penetration, including the central nervous system. This makes it particularly useful for treating systemic fungal infections. Ketoconazole, on the other hand, has variable oral absorption and may require administration with food to improve absorption. Ketoconazole has a higher potential for drug interactions compared to fluconazole. It can inhibit liver enzymes that metabolize many medications, which may lead to altered blood levels of certain drugs. Fluconazole has a lower propensity for drug interactions and is generally considered safer in this regard. Both fluconazole and ketoconazole can have side effects, including gastrointestinal upset, liver toxicity, and changes in hormone levels. However, ketoconazole has a higher incidence of adverse effects, particularly hepatotoxicity, compared to fluconazole.

How fast does Fluconazole work in dogs?
Answer

It can take some time to reach a stable blood level of fluconazole in the body, typically within one to two weeks of regular administration. This is because fluconazole has a relatively long half-life, meaning it remains in the body for a significant duration of time. While fluconazole may not provide rapid results, it gradually accumulates in the body over time, reaching therapeutic levels that can effectively combat the fungal infection. The timeframe for a noticeable improvement in symptoms can vary depending on factors such as the specific fungal infection, its severity, and the individual response of the dog.

Is Fluconazole an antibiotic?
Answer

No, fluconazole is not an antibiotic. It is an antifungal medication. Antibiotics are medications specifically used to treat bacterial infections. They work by either killing bacteria or inhibiting their growth. Examples of antibiotics include penicillin, amoxicillin, and ciprofloxacin. Fluconazole, on the other hand, belongs to a class of drugs known as azole antifungals. It is used to treat fungal and yeast infections by inhibiting the growth and spread of fungi. Fluconazole is effective against a variety of fungal species and is commonly used to treat conditions such as vaginal yeast infections, oral thrush, and systemic fungal infections.

Fluconazole 100 mg

The generic name for Diflucan, Fluconazole is a great way to get rid of a fungal infection, inhibiting the formation of the fungal cell wall, thereby resulting in cell death and the death of the organism. Working against infections under the nails, ringworm, blastomycosis, or cryptococcosis, this medication does a number on some dangerous fungal infections that might otherwise do damage to the skin, claws, brain, respiratory tract, bones, or other tissues. An โ€˜extra-labelโ€™ medication, it is not approved for use in pets by the FDA, but can legally be prescribed by a vet.

Fluconazole can interact with many other drugs. It is important to tell your veterinarian about any other medications, vitamins, or supplements your pet is taking before giving fluconazole to your pet. Do not give to pets who have liver disease or impairment. If your pet has kidney disease or kidney failure, discuss the risks versus benefits with your veterinarian before giving fluconazole. Do not give to pregnant animals or animals that are nursing unless your veterinarian says the benefits outweigh the risks. Do not give fluconazole to any pets who are sensitive or allergic to other "azole" antifungal medications, such as ketoconazole. If you have any concerns about this medication, talk with your veterinarian before giving it to your pet.

Keep out of reach of children and pets.

Vomiting, diarrhea, skin rashes, loss of appetite, increased liver enzymes, hepatic toxicity, or thrombocytopenia are all possible, but not common, side effects of fluconazole.

Fluconazole should never be used in patients with liver disease, and patients with kidney disease may need to have the intervals and dosage adjusted. Pregnant pets should only take fluconazole if the benefits outweigh the risks. Fluconazole might increase the risk of heart problems caused by terfenadine and astemizole. Anticoagulants might cause increased prothrombin times, and antidiabetic drugs might increase their serum levels, resulting in hypoglycemia, when taken with fluconazole. Fluconazole might inhibit the metabolism of cisapride, resulting in high plasma concentrations, which has been linked to fatal cardiac arrhythmias. Fluconazole might increase cyclosporine levels or plasma levels (when used with hydrochlorothiazide). Rifampin might increase the metabolism rate of fluconazole.

Saved our cat's life!
VERIFIED PURCHASER

Our cat started showing signs of improvement within a couple of weeks from his histoplasmosis. He has shown no signs of side effects. He will continue treatment for several months. Had to cut the pills in half though, because they didn't have 50mg pills.
