    Default VET Que: RX: Fluconazole affect Sperm Count in dogs?

    I plan to inquire with my vet (theriogenology) locally as well tomorrow- but am concerned regarding the use of Fluconazole in a stud dog, affecting semen count and quality.
    Is there any research or knowledge regarding the effects of this Rx on a sire? The dog in question is currently on it, and I am concerned about the effects.
    Thanks in advance----

    Quick pubmed search didn't reveal anything in dogs. I'll ask the collective braintrust this afternoon and PM you later. ETA: it does seem that the effects were reversible when the drug was discontinued, and of course, a rabbit isn't a dog, but it was one of the only papers that popped up.

    Can the stud dog be collected for a semen evaluation right away? That would surely provide the information you need.

    The stud dog owner said she would be willing to do so but it sounds like it will be difficult - as she is traveling some in the next few days.
    I'd like to see though-
