Animalcare launches new easy-to-administer oral antifungal for dogs with 4-way split smart-tab for accurate dosing
Animalcare, the York based Animal Health company has launched the UK's only veterinary licenced antifungal tablet for dogs. Fungiconazol® (ketoconazole) is indicated for the treatment of ringworm in dogs. Utilising 4-way split SmartTabs, Fungiconazol ensures accurate dosing and improves both compliance and cost-efficiency.
Each Fungiconazol tablet contains 200 or 400mg of ketoconazole, to be administered at a dosage of 10mg per kg bodyweight once daily. Each tablet is split easily into quarters or halves, allowing accurate treatment for dogs from 5kg (¼ x 200mg tablet daily) to 60kg (1½ x 400mg tablet daily) and beyond. The hypoallergenic chicken flavoured tablets mean that Fungiconazol is also suitable for dogs with food allergies or atopic dermatitis.
Animalcare Product Manager Tony Liepman said: "This is a great addition to our antimicrobial range, and shows once again that it’s possible for us to be innovative without breaking anyone's budget. With the supply of the first and only licensed canine antifungal tablet on the market, we have ensured that all veterinary practices have access to Animalcare’s Technical Support department for further advice on treatment or its use in their patients."
Both 200mg and 400mg presentations of Fungiconazol, in 100 tablet blister packs, are available in wholesalers now.
