Ketoconazole / fungus / licking
My Irish setter ( 5 months ) developed a week ago a fungus on its elbows and kneees. The doctor prescribe a shot and a cream ( ketoconazole) he mentioned I would not see improvement until 8 days later or so and that the treatment should last 15 days..... however the puppy really likes licking the cream... I try to rub it in as much as possible but he still gives it a few licks after.
I've read orally administers ketoconazole can cause loss of appetite.... he's stools are good.. but his eating has been off... mostly mornings he doesn't feel like eating ( I feed him twice 150grams per meal )
I'm wondering if it's the licking of the medication créeme or if he is just getting fancy with his meal ( I feed him purina pro plan) because if I drop some dog beef on top he will eat it completely...
His character is normal joyful and playful
