Do not use Ketoconazole if your pet has a history of being allergic to other "azole" antifungals including: itraconazole and fluconazole

Food and Drug Interactions
Many medications can interact with Ketoconazole. Be sure to disclose every medication and supplement that is given to your pet before starting Ketoconazole
Ketoconazole should be given with food. Giving it with a fatty food such as butter, cream or cheese helps the drug to be absorbed.
This drug has a higher risk for causing birth defects, so pregnant women should take extra care to wear disposable gloves when handling the drug. Avoid inhaling any dust from split or crushed tablets. Skin or eyes exposed to powder or liquids containing Ketoconazole should immediately be washed or rinsed off thoroughly.
Possible Side Effects
Cats are more likely to experience side effects then dogs are using Ketoconazole. The most common side effects for both animals are decreased appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea. These side effects can turn serious if they are prolonged for a long amount of time.
Contact your veterinarian if you believe your pet is experiencing side effects.
