Miconazole is an antifungal drug used in the treatment of skin fungal infections called dermatophytosis (ringworm) in dogs, cats, and other pets. Side effects are rare. Contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences redness, rash, or other signs of skin irritation that were not present before use of the medicine. Ringworm is contagious and can be spread to other animals and humans. Consult with your veterinarian regarding the hygiene measures you should use to avoid spread of the fungus. Wash hands thoroughly after use.


Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children and pets.
