Pharmacists Helping Vets and Pets
Our specialty service works in conjunction with local veterinarians allowing them to broaden their prescribing abilities and to offer dosage forms that are patient-specific in strength and formulation. 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.
Compounding veterinarian medications can make medicating animals easier by preparing flavored chews that animals accept readily. The amount of medication incorporated into the chews, capsules, topical, or liquid preparations can be formulated to the specific request of the veterinarian, thereby eliminating the need to cut-up tablets and divide the contents of commercially prepared capsules.
By compounding the medicine specifically suited to your animal’s tastes and needs, the owners are more able to comply with the prescribed treatment to keep their pets healthy and the relationship between pets and their people stays relaxed and pleasurable.
