Prescription Cat Antifungal Medication

Signs and symptoms of a possible fungal infection in your cat can include skin problems, loss of appetite, and fever. Cats can get infected by coming into contact with spores or other infected animals. Most fungal infections will be too complicated to treat your cat with over the counter anti-fungal sprays, gels, or creams. With veterinary consultation, these products may be used until your cat can be taken to your veterinarian for proper diagnosis. Prescription antifungal medications come in tablet form. Consult with your veterinarian to learn more about the infection and to begin treating it properly.
