55 Worked a treat
Verified Purchase

By on 19 July 2021

The vet prescribed a direct treatment which was tricky to use as our dog had about 25 legions, so using the Imaverol to get a more all over treatment for her was great. Seemed to go after the second treatment but carried on with the course to make sure.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Imaverol Ringworm Treatment, including answers from our team.

How to apply?

Nic

Hi my vet Prescribed this for our horses. I wanted to check the following is correct please …
Neither will accept a spray so we diluted as directed 10ml Imaverol to 5liters of warm water. We used sponges to dip in the bucket of solution and applied to the horse all over Is this correct? We have to do this eveyday for 5 days. But vet didn’t mention about doing it 4 times at the time. This im confused about as we’d completely got it everywhere on the horse in the first time. …? Thankyou

  • VioVet Staff

The datasheet for this product states the following regarding application:

The concentrated Imaverol solution should be diluted by adding 1 part to 50 parts warm water to provide a 2 mg/ml emulsion.
Horses: the lesions and surrounding skin should be washed with the diluted emulsion 4 times at 3-day intervals.

Your application method is great. You will need to put 100mls in 5 lites (5000ml) of water though to make the 1:50 ratio. You should also not apply it every day, it is advised to apply every 3 days for 4 times in total before reassessing with your vet. If your vet recommends daily application though then you should follow this advice.

Dog in pup

Can it be used on pregnant dog

Can it be used on pregnant dogs nipples

  • VioVet Staff

According to the datasheet this product may be given to pregnant and lactating animals. However it should not be ingested so you should wash the nipples thoroughly after treatment if your bitch is nursing at the time.

Use of cyclospray with Imaverol

Jessie

Can a treatment such as cyclospray be used along with Imaverol to protect lesions from flies etc or does Imaverol act as a deterrent to flies?

  • VioVet Staff

You can use these products together but you will need to reapply the cyclospray after every time you have shamoo'd with imaverol, as the imaverol will wash off the previously applied cyclospray. Cyclopsray is an antibiotic spray that will treat/prevent bacterial infections. Imaverol is an anti-fungal wash that will treat fungal infections (mainly ringworm). Neither are indicated at protecting lesions from flies.
If you are unsure of how to treat the lesion your animal has then I recommend contacting your local vet so they can diagnose the problem.

Out of date imaverol

Bev

Hi. I have some Imaverol left over from 18 months ago when my horse had ringworm. Its out of date by a few months. Will it still be affective?

  • VioVet Staff

Unfortunately we cannot advise using products beyond the packaging's stated expiry date. The medication at best may not work but at worst may cause harm to your pet.

I will also highlight the following regarding shelf life of this product as per the data sheet:
Shelf life after first opening the immediate packaging: 3 months.
Shelf life after dilution according to directions: 6 weeks.

Bathing

Diane Vaughan

After reading some of the Q&A it’s mentioned about using this product in the bath. How would you recommend administering it and if used in the bath what would be the best way? Getting the dog into the bath isn’t a problem but would you mix it with shampoo or just use as an emulsion in the bath? Would you rinse the dog after or leave it on the skin?

  • VioVet Staff

The dosing guidelines for a dog are pasted below as per the data sheet:

The concentrated Imaverol solution should be diluted by adding 1 part to 50 parts warm water to provide a 2 mg/ml emulsion.
The animals should be washed with the diluted emulsion 4 times at
3-day intervals. While doing this, one should rub thoroughly in the
direction opposite to the hair growth to make sure that the skin is
thoroughly wet. For the same reason, it is recommended that long haired
dogs be clipped before treatment.

Alternatively dogs may be dipped thoroughly in a bath containing the prepared emulsion.

You can use the product in a bath to dip your dog, as advised above. However I would not rinse the product off. You can dry your dog aftewards but it is important the emulsion stays on the skin to act over the treatment period. If rinsed off it cannot perform it's task.

Ringworm treatment

Debra Cooksey

do I need a prescription for this of my vet

  • VioVet Staff

Imaverol is a non-prescription medication so you can purchase this from us for your horse, cow or dog through our website. You will be prompted to enter your pet's details when placing the order. If you are ordering for any animal not on the license of this drug then you will need a prescription, for example if you are ordering for a guinea pig.

Use on a dog

Charlie

My dog has a patch on his bag. Do I bath his whole body in this or just the areas affected?

  • VioVet Staff

If treating a fungal infection such as ringworm then the diluted emulsion of Imaverol will need to be used to wash all areas where the fungus may be present. This will mainly be where the visible patches of hair loss or infected skin are, but the fungi can be present in normal healthy hairs and areas of skin. I therefore advise ideally washing all areas of your dog where hair is present, excluding sensitive areas. If your dog is particularly large and washing the entire dog is not realistic, then wash the areas where patches are present and a little around this too. The infection is usually spread a little further than where visible hair loss/skin lesions are present.

Cats

Alexandra

Is this suitable for cats?

  • VioVet Staff

This product is only licensed for use in dogs, cattle and horses so I cannot advise it's use in cats. I recommend contacting your vet for more information on this. The product is a topical wash and cat's often struggle with topical medications, they will be able to provide more suitable alternatives (such as Itrafungol).

How to use imaverol

Bernie

Can I use this product as a spray

  • VioVet Staff

I would recommend following the product data sheet regarding dosing, the relavent section is pasted below:

For topical use only.
To be prepared and administered in adequately ventilated surroundings.The concentrated Imaverol solution should be diluted by adding 1 part to 50 parts warm water to provide a 2 mg/ml emulsion. Dermatophytes will extend into the hair follicles. Possible crusts must therefore be removed with a hard brush which has been soaked in the diluted Imaverol emulsion. It is highly recommended that the animal is sprayed entirely at the first treatment so as to reach the subclinical lesions as well.

Cattle: depending on the nature of the lesions, cattle should be treated 3 to 4 times at 3-day intervals. The animals should either be washed with the diluted emulsion or the emulsion should be applied to them with a sprayer or high-pressure cleaning unit.

Horses: the lesions and surrounding skin should be washed with the diluted emulsion 4 times at 3-day intervals.

Dogs: the animals should be washed with the diluted emulsion 4 times at 3-day intervals. While doing this, one should rub thoroughly in the direction opposite to the hair growth to make sure that the skin is thoroughly wet. For the same reason, it is recommended that long haired dogs be clipped before treatment. Alternatively dogs may be dipped thoroughly in a bath containing the prepared emulsion.

Licking off and digestion

Ashleigh

Is it ok if your dog licks at the ringworm after treatment has been applied (would try to prevent until dried, obviously) or would a "lampshade" be required?

  • VioVet Staff

It is unlikely to do your dog any harm if they do lick the ringworm lesions after treatment. However licking is likely to delay healing and could cause a secondary infection so it would be much better to prevent it.
