Pharmacists Helping Vets and Pets
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.
Compounding can make medicating animals easier if the pharmacist prepares flavored chews that animals accept readily.
Our compounding pharmacy can prepare:
- Flavored medication
- Medicine in ideal size, strength, and dosage form
- Unavailable medications
- Combinations to improve compliance
- Novel devices and delivery systems
Compounding is actually a means to an end. We work together with veterinarians and their clients and patients to solve medication problems by compounding specialized medications that meet the unique needs of each animal.
