Prescription Antifungal for Dogs

Signs and symptoms of a possible fungal infection can include sneezing, pain in nasal area, loss of appetite, swelling in nasal area, vomiting, and fever. Most fungal infections will be too complicated to treat your dog with over the counter anti-fungal sprays, gels, or creams. With veterinary consultation, these products may be used until your pup can be taken to your veterinarian for proper diagnosis. Prescription antifungal medications come in both topical and oral forms, with oral providing the most effective care. Consult with your veterinarian to learn more about the infection and begin treating it properly.
