Ketoconazole for Dogs and Cats
Ketoconazole is a medication that is fairly old and was originally designed to kill fungal infections. It was used in dogs and cats for some time, but it has been superceded for the most part by newer drugs that have fewer risks of side effects. However, it is still used in many cases to treat Cushing's Disease in Dogs and Cushing's Disease in Cats, because that disease is so serious that it is often worth risking the side effects in many cases. For more information on Ketaconazole, see our page on Nizoral for pets, which explains how it works in more detail (Nizoral is the brand name of the most commonly used version of this drug).
