(MICONAZOLE NITRATE)

Description

CONOFITE (miconazole nitrate) Spray or Lotion is a synthetic antifungal agent for use on dogs and cats. It contains 1.15% miconazole nitrate (equivalent to 1% miconazole base by weight), polyethylene glycol 400, and ethyl alcohol 55%.

Conofite Spray 1% Indications

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

Precautions

In the event of sensitization or irritation due to CONOFITE Spray or Lotion, treatment should be discontinued. Avoid contact with eyes, since irritation may result. Wash hands thoroughly after administration to avoid spread of fungal infection.

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.

Spray: Spray affected areas from a distance of 2 to 4 inches to apply a light covering, once daily for 2 to 4 weeks. Do not allow pet to contact finished wood surfaces until pet is thoroughly dried.

Lotion: Apply a light covering of CONOFITE (miconazole nitrate) Lotion to affected areas, once daily, for 2 to 4 weeks. Application is best accomplished by using a gauze pad or cotton swab.

Medication must be continued until the infecting organism is completely eradicated as indicated by appropriate clinical or laboratory examination. If no improvement is noticed within 2 weeks, 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 reinfection. Clipping of hair around and over the sites of infection should be done at the start of treatment and again as necessary.
