Imaverol Ringworm Treatment

  • 100ml Bottle £24.54


Imaverol is a synthetic, antifungal drug suitable for horses, cattle and dogs. Diluted in water and applied as a gentle wash, it is highly effective against the main types of Dermatophytes which cause ringworm.


Brown-yellow, clear, viscous solution containing 100 mg enilconazole per ml. For cutaneous use after dilution.


Imaverol is a synthetic antimycotic. It is indicated for the treatment of dermatomycoses in cattle, horses and dogs induced by the following pathogenic fungi: Trichophyton verrucosum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Trichophyton equinum, Microsporum canis, Microsporum gypseum.

Dosage and administration

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 of warm water, to provide a 2mg/ml emulsion (0.2 % w/v). 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 be sprayed entirely at the first treatment so as to reach the subclinical lesions as well.


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.


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


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.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

For external use only.

The solution must be diluted before use.

Further information

Enilconazole is a synthetic broad-spectrum antimycotic with a high activity against most of the common dermatophytes and various other fungi and yeasts.

It is a selective inhibitor of ergosterol biosynthesis, an essential component of the cell membrane of fungi and yeasts. This results in irreversible changes which are the origin of the fungicidal effect.

The systemic availability after topical administration of enilconazole in animals is very low. An extensive first-pass metabolism has been demonstrated after oral administration. Tissue residues are almost non-existent and, relatively, are highest in the liver. Enilconazole is extensively metabolised and the main excretion routes are urine and faeces. Excretion in the milk from cattle is very limited.

Questions & Answers for Imaverol Ringworm Treatment

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

Ask Your Own Question

Spray whole horse?

3rd Jan 2016
  • VioVet Customer Since: November 2013
  • From: , United Kingdom

My horse has two small ringworm patches on his muzzle. He is a cob with a very thick winter coat. It is too cold to bath him at the moment. Should he sprayed all over with the product, or will it be sufficient to treat the affected area only? Not sure if he was sprayed that the product would reach his skin through winter coat.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

It is often effective to treat just the visible lesions alone. Ideally you should spray the entire animal at the start of treatment, then treat just the obvious, affected bits 4 times at 3 day intervals. If the coat is wet or muddy before you start then that will not help. The winter coat does not help either, though it still might work perfectly well enough. I would try to treat the obvious bits carefully and see how it goes from there. Chances are that will work perfectly well in fact.

Use with Frontline

12th Apr 2015

Can this product be used with Frontline? How long should I wait between applying the Frontline and applying the Imaverol?

Danielle Fletcher
  • Category Manager, Own Brand & E-SQP

Frontline and Imaverol can be used together but routine bathing will reduce the duration of protection against fleas and ticks.

If this is a one-off Imaverol treatment, I would recommend completing the Imaverol bathing period before applying Frontline. Dogs should be bathed with the diluted Imaverol 4 times, with 3 day intervals. After the final treatment, you can then apply Frontline.

If you need to use Imaverol more frequently, you will need to wait 2 days after Frontline application before you can bath your dog. Studies haven't been carried out to see how much frequent bathing reduces duration of protection, so I'd recommend keeping an eye on your dog and if he has a problem with fleas, ask your vet to advise you on applying Frontline more frequently.

Is it a preventative measure or a cure?

9th Jan 2015

Just to clarify, is this a cure for ring worm or a prevention??

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

This is intended to be a cure and is usually very effective when used as directed. Nothing in medicine is ever 100% certain, but it is not used as a preventative.


15th Sep 2014

How much will the 100ml bottle treat ? Would this be enough for the 4 wash treatment.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

It depends what you are treating. You have to dilute the Imaverol by adding 1ml to 50mls of water. You then use that liquid to thoroughly we all the skin. For a small animal there is plenty to do 4 washes. If you are treating a large horse, you might have difficulty. Quarter of the bottle will make up 1.25 litres of liquid to treat your animal. If you can wet the entire surface with that, then you are fine. Imaverol is used for small animals such as Guinea Pigs up to horses and cattle.

Use for fungal not ringworm?

17th Aug 2014

Hi again. Can imaverol be used for other fungal infections that are not ringworm?
Thank you.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

The active ingredient is effective against many types of fungal organism. However using it for other infections may or may not work, or be safe, so you should ask your own vet about this.

Can this be used for guinea pigs? Is it licensed for them?

17th Aug 2014

I have read lots about this being used for guinea pigs but read the question and answer about cats where it was said it isn't licensed for cats. Is it licensed for guinea pigs? I know itrafungol can be prescribed for guinea pigs.

Danielle Fletcher
  • Category Manager, Own Brand & E-SQP

Imaverol is a POM-VPS product for dogs, cattle and horses and isn't licensed for cats or guinea pigs but it is often prescribed for them by their veterinary surgeon. We wouldn't be allowed to supply you without a prescription from your vet if you wanted to use it on an animal it isn't licensed for, because this is known as 'off-label' use. Your vet will be able to write you an 'off-label' prescription for them which will include a dosage appropriate for the animal, and then we would be allowed to supply under their recommendation.

Rinse or leave

16th May 2014

Hi just wondering if you rinse the product imaverol after applying to our dog or leave it on ? Thanks

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

This product should not be rinsed off; it is left to dry on the coat. (Make sure your dog does not get cold while this happens).

Treatment of ringworm in cats

26th Oct 2013

  • VioVet Customer Since: November 2011
  • From: Kent, United Kingdom

Hi I have adopted 3 kittens from Romania. One has ringworm (she was supposed to have had antibiotics prior to leaving Romania) She has passed this on to me, so presumably she needs further treatment? Would Imaverol be suitable for a kitten (she's approx. 3-4 months old, but only weighs 1.5Kg. Thank you.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Imaverol is not licensed for cats so we would not recommend using it. Itrafungol is the licensed treatment, but it requires a prescription which you would need to get from your vet before we could sell you this product. Ideally you would use a topical treatment at the same time, though Itrafungol is the main one.
