(MICONAZOLE NITRATE)

Description

CONOFITE (miconazole nitrate) Cream is a synthetic antifungal agent for use on dogs and cats. Each gram contains 23 mg of miconazole nitrate (equivalent to 20 mg miconazole base) in a base containing: cetyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, butylated hydroxytoluene, white petrolatum, mineral oil, polyoxyl 40 stearate, butylparaben and purified water.

Conofite Cream 2% Indications

CONOFITE (miconazole nitrate) Cream is indicated for the treatment of fungal infections in dogs and cats caused by Microsporum canis, Microsporum gypseum and Trichophyton mentagrophytes.

PRECAUTION: Avoid contact with the eyes, since irritation may result. Wash hands thoroughly after administration to avoid the spread of fungal infection. Do not allow pet to contact finished wood surfaces until pet is thoroughly dried.

Dosage and Administration

An 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.

Apply a 1/4 inch ribbon of CONOFITE (miconazole nitrate) Cream once daily per square inch of lesion for 2 to 4 weeks. Rub into infected site and immediate surrounding vicinity. Application is best accomplished using a finger cot or cotton swab. The medication must be continued until the infecting organism is completely eradicated as indicated by appropriate clinical or laboratory examination. If improvement is not noticed within 2 weeks, the 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 re-infection. Clipping of hair around and over the sites of infection should be done at the start of treatment and again as necessary.

How Supplied

CONOFITE (miconazole nitrate) Cream available in 15 g tubes.
