Yeast Infections can be hard to combat, so a successful treatment may take several weeks.
How long your pet will require Fluconazole depends on the severity of the yeast infection.
Your pet should be given the full course of the medication prescribed to prevent a relapse of the yeast infection and a resistance to the medication.
How does it work?:
Fluconazole works by impairing the growth of an organism that causes a yeast infection, by interfering with the enzymes that make up its cellular walls. The walls or membranes of the organisms are created by lanosterol, which gets converted to ergosterol. A lack of ergosterol will cause the cellular walls to become weak and leak, thus causing the organism to die. The medication, when first taken, is fully absorbed within two hours.
