It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Ketoconazole is a broad-spectrum, synthetic antifungal medication belonging to the imidazole family of drugs. It treats fungal infections by inhibiting ergosterol synthesis, which prevents fungal cells from maintaining plasma membrane integrity. This causes the cell wall to rupture.

Ketoconazole treats Cushing's disease by blocking the formation of cortisol in the adrenal glands.

Warnings:

Keep this product out of reach of children and animals. Do not use or store in or near open flame or heat.

Ketoconazole is intended for use in dogs. Do not use in other animals unless specifically prescribed for that purpose by your veterinarian. Do not use in humans. Although this medication is sometimes used in cats, it may be toxic.

Do not give this medication to pregnant or nursing pets.

Do not give Ketoconazole to pets taking astemizole, triazolam, or cisapride. Doing so can cause serious and potentially fatal side effects.
