Right Combination!
My mixed breed spaniel has had severe skin infections for over a year caused by an unknown alergy. The skin on various parts of his body had crusty, yellowish growths that caused him to be miserable and his constant scratching and rolling around the carpet would only irritate his skin more so that those infected areas would become moist from a yeast infection...often compounded with bacterial infection caused by irritation from constant scratching his skin raw. He smelled horrible, poor ol' dog. The vet put him on Ketoconazole to kill the yeast, and Apoquel to deaden the itching. It worked somewhat, but it would always return. We bathed him weekly with PhytoVet CK shampoo that also contains Ketoconazole...and that helped. But all that...and it still would come back, and he'd go back to scratching again. So my vet thought perhaps an increase in the dosage according to his weight might help, and IT DID! My dog weighs 33lbs, and at supper only I give him 1/2 of a 200mg KetoConazole tablet and 1/2 of a 16mg Apoquel tablet...each completely wrapped up inside of a piece of American cheese and mixed in with his food. This has competely taken away his skin problem, and his coat is beautiful....no more scratching and no more hortibly stinky, miserable dog. And no more weekly baths. When I get him groomed... once a month...I now take the PhytoVet CK shampoo for the groomer to use instead of the one he normally would use. I hope that this can help someone.

When my Charlie was diagnosed with Cushings disease I was worried because he'd lost weight and hair in patches here and there. After taking ketoconazole he's back to his normal weight and his hair is coming back and the dandruff is gone. He seems like he feels better too!

My 60 lb shepherd mix was on 100 mg of Atopica daily and would still get occasional ear infections. Vet changed to Ketoconazole (3/4 tablet) and 50 mg Atopica and it made a huge difference. I am now giving this dosage every other day and will try to go to every three days. The Ketoconazole has been a life saver.

What is the most important thing I should know about ketoconazole?

Combined with these drugs, ketoconazole could cause serious, even fatal side effects. In rare cases, ketoconazole can cause severe liver damage.

These symptoms may be early signs of liver damage.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving ketoconazole?

Do not give ketoconazole if your pet is being given astemizole (Hismanal), cisapride (Propulsid) or triazolam (Halcion). Dangerous or life threatening events may occur. Do not use this medication in pets allergic to it or similar medications.

What are the potential side effects of ketoconazole?

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving ketoconazole and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; hives); or liver damage (yellowish eyes, abdominal pain, unusual fatigue, or dark urine). Other less serious side effects may occur. If any of the following side effects occur, continue to give ketoconazole and talk to your veterinarian; nausea, vomiting, or abdominal pain; diarrhea; headache; dizziness; fatigue; itching. Side effects other than those listed in this guide may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome to your pet.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of ketoconazole?

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication unless directed to by your veterinarian.

What happens if I overdose my pet on ketoconazole?

If your pet has been given an overdose of ketoconazole, contact your veterinarian or emergency veterinary clinic immediately.

What should I avoid while giving ketoconazole to my pet?
