Your pets are special. Why not give them customized care?
As a pet owner, you want your pet to receive the highest-quality veterinary care. You want them to have treatment as sophisticated and compassionate as you might receive yourself. You’re not alone!
Our specialty service should not be viewed as competition with local veterinarians; rather, compounding allows veterinarians to broaden their prescribing abilities and to offer dosage forms that are patient-specific in strength and formulation. Therefore, the goal of compounding for the veterinary patient is to enhance the veterinarian’s ability to treat patients in a more effective and efficient manner.
Our compounding pharmacy can prepare:
- Flavored medication (such as tuna, chicken, and beef)
- Medicine in ideal size, strength, and dosage form
- Unavailable medications
- Combinations to improve compliance
- Novel devices and delivery systems
Why should you consider compounding as a solution for your pet’s medical problems?
When is the last time you tried to give your cat a pill? Cats don’t like to take pills, but they like tuna. Dogs don’t appreciate a traditional solution of Amoxicillin being squirted into their mouths, but they’ll gladly take when it’s part of a tasty biscuit or treat. Maybe you have a pet who refuses to take medication because of the taste.
Also, from time to time, a manufacturer will discontinue a medication used in veterinary applications. When that medication has worked well for animals, a compounding pharmacist can obtain the pure bulk pharmaceutical and prepare a prescription for the discontinued product – a dosage strength and dose form appropriate for that pet’s needs.
These are just some of the many reasons compounding is an ideal option for your pet’s medication needs.
