Reusable Glass Vial Program

Compounding is the art and science of creating custom medications from raw materials. It allows for the creation of specific dosages or alternative formats for patients (including pets!) with specific needs. It is commonly used in sports medicine, dermatology, veterinary medicine, and hormone treatments, just to name a few. 


If you are a medical professional, please get in touch with inquiries about our compounding services.



We provide free prescription deliveries within Antigonish town limits. Let pharmacy staff know if you require a delivery. Please note, someone must be available to receive the prescription upon delivery.
