Personalized Medicine for your Pet

    pets

    If you have read our bios you know that pets are very special to us. They are family.

    Just like their owners, pets are unique! Just like our human patients, our pets can benefit from compounded medications, too. We can make the Right medication in the Right dosage, Right flavor and Right way for your pet!

    When it comes to diseases like skin rashes, eye and ear infections, heart conditions, cancer, thyroid disorders, anxiety, diabetes, or pain management, animals and humans have a lot in common, but giving pets medication presents a unique set of challenges – challenges that can often be addressed through compounding.

    Can't get your pet to swallow a pill?

    Cats are notorious for refusing to swallow pills and they’ll usually eat right around one disguised in food. Just like humans, many of our medications can be made in a cream or gel. For example, you can be rubbing medication on your cat’s ear rather than forcing it down their throat!

    Is your pet large or small?

    d23a4490Dosages can be tricked with dogs – a dose of medication that is therapeutic for an 80-pound Labrador Retriever could be deadly for a six-pound Yorkie. Large and exotic pets, such as horses, rabbits, birds, ferrets, and reptiles all pose a wide variety of different medication challenges. But the solution is often the same: veterinary compounding.

    Does your pet have flavors they really like?

    d23a4318Compounding is ideal for pets that won’t take medication because of the taste. Cats don’t like pills, but they do like tuna. Dogs aren’t usually wild about medication being squirted into their mouth, but they’ll take it gladly when it’s meat-flavored. Birds can’t take large volumes of liquid medication, but they’ll open wide for a small dose of a tasty, fruit-flavored, concentrated solution.

    We have a wide variety of flavors: Chicken, Beef, Bacon, Fish and Triple Fish (sardines, tuna and salmon). Some of our pets like the combination flavors like Beef & Bacon or fruity flavors from Apple to Watermelon!

    Can't get the medication that was working great?

    Sometimes a manufacturer may discontinue a veterinary medication. It’s often because there’s not enough demand to make mass production cost effective, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some pets that need it. When a medication that has worked well for your pet isn’t commercially available, a compounding pharmacist can prepare a prescription – and tailor the strength, dosage form, and flavor to meet specific needs.

    Does your pet have an illness, disease or injury?
