We are proud to be your source for all of your pet’s pharmaceutical needs. Compounding is our process of creating “custom” prescriptions for your pet.
Certain conditions are best treated with medications that are not available in standard commercial formulations. In order to be profitable, drug manufacturers only mass produce medications in popular doses and dosage forms. Yet the best strength, flavor, or dosage form for YOUR PET may not be available.
By contrast, compounding of medications means making prescriptions that meet your pet’s needs. With compounded medications, you will be provided the most effective treatment, delivered in the most appropriate and convenient dosage form. By partnering with you, we aim to enhance your treatment options and improve your pet’s results by customizing medications to meet your needs.
Each patient is unique – shouldn’t their medication be?
How Can Compounding Help You?
- By customizing medication strengths
- By solving dosing problems with individualized, patient specific dosing
- By making medications that are dye-free, sugar-free, alcohol-free, preservative-free, lactose-free and/or gluten-free
- By making medications where there is a manufacturing shortage
- By making medications that may no longer be available
- By adding flavors to help ‘make the medicine go down’ easier
- By making a pet’s medication easier to administer
Any one of these compounding services can help with medication administration and compliance.
