For a dog his size, 1000mg is appropriate, and would be given twice daily for several types of fungal infections.

I'm not sure that I would support its use in Flash based on your description.

Expert:  brisadog replied 12 months ago.

I would not consider loose skin suspicious for a fungal infection, so I'm a bit mystified!

Expert:  brisadog replied 12 months ago.

Did you have any concerns about his skin prior to the appointment? Or was this something pointed out by your vet?
