Precautions

In the event of sensitization or irritation due to Priconazole® Lotion, 1% or Spray, 1% (miconazole nitrate), 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

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.

Lotion: Apply a light covering of Priconazole® Lotion, 1% (miconazole nitrate) to affected areas, once daily, for 2 to 4 weeks. Application is best accomplished using a gauze pad or cotton swab.

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.

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.
