Give your pets the specialized care they deserve.
There are are many reasons to talk to your vet about compounded prescriptions for your pets.
Animals often have variations of the same diseases humans can have, including skin rashes, eye and ear infections, heart conditions, cancer, and diabetes. Medicating pets presents unique challenges, its not like you can give the pet a bottle of pills. The best solution is dealt with through compounding. Pharmacy compounding is becoming a popular solution to veterinary problems. Compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications for pets that are in a customized form, making it easier for you to give to your pet. Its resurgence in recent years extends valuable benefits to today’s pet owners.
If your pet has ever been sick you know, animals can be extremely difficult to treat with medications. Cat owners know they are notorious for refusing to swallow pills, and usually will eat right around one disguised in food.
When it comes to canines, dosages can be very tricky with dogs – a dose of medication that works for an 80-pound Golden Retriever may be far too much for a tiny Boston Terrier to handle. Our compounding pharmacists are equipped to help most animals including
Custom Flavours and Formats
Pets can detest medicine. Cats hate pills, but they do like tuna. Dogs don’t appreciate a solution of medication being squirted into their mouth, but they’ll take it gladly when it’s a tasty biscuit or treat. Birds cannot take large volumes of liquid medication, but they will accept a small dose of a tasty, fruit-flavoured compound.
By working closely with your veterinarian, a compounding pharmacist can prepare medicines in easy-to-give flavoured dosage forms that animals happily devour, whether your pet is a cat, dog, or bird. We can also make compounds for almost any type of animal.
Just like you your animals are individual and unique. They come in different shapes and sizes, and may be sensitive to ingredients. As a result, not all commercially available medicines are appropriate for every pet. That’s where compounding can really be helpful. In this situation, your veterinarian can prescribe a flavoured liquid, treat, or other dosage form with the amount of medication that is exactly right for your pet’s size and condition. We will custom make it to ensure it fits the needs of your unique pet.
Compounds of Commercially Unavailable Pet Medicine
A pet drug manufacturer may discontinue a veterinary medication. Often this is because it is not needed in the vast quantities necessary to make mass production cost-effective, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some pets that need it.
When a medication has worked well for animals, a compounding pharmacist can prepare a prescription for the discontinued product – and tailor the strength, dosage form, and flavour to that pet’s specific needs.
