If anyone has had any experience in treating the fungal infection, Cryptococcosis, please let me know. We have tested her for FIV and she is negative. Her immune system is fine. The medication (Ketoconazole) that the vet put her on makes her sick and she is losing a lot of weight. The only other option for medication given by our vet is called Itraconazole. This has a lot fewer side effects but is very very expensive. The treatment of this infection is said to take 10 months and the monthly dosage for the medication is over $300. I can't afford the medication but I can't afford to lose her. If anyone has found any alternative to treat this infection please let me know. I have heard of a medication called Flucoriazole that may be able to help infections caused by a fungus. Has anyone used this? Please help!
