Apple Valley’s Veterinary Compounding Pharmacist Can Solve Your Pet Medication Issues
Medicating animals can present problems. They may refuse to swallow pills or even eat right around one disguised in food. Dosages may also be tricky – a dose that works for an 80-pound Golden Retriever is too much for a 6-pound Yorkie to handle. Large and exotic pets pose their own unique medication challenges. Our compounding pharmacist is equipped to handle them all!
Compounding is a great way to get your pet to take its medicine. We work closely with your veterinarian to prepare medications in easy-to-give flavored dosage forms that animals happily devour.
Solving Dosage Problems
Just like their owners, animals are individual and unique. They come in different shapes and sizes and may be sensitive to ingredients like lactose. As a result, not all commercially available medicines are appropriate for every pet. Veterinary compounding can be the solution. Your veterinarian can prescribe a flavored liquid, treat, or other dosage form with the amount of medication that is exactly right for your pet’s size and condition.
Commercially Unavailable Medicine
From time to time, a 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. If this is the case with your pet, our compounding pharmacy can prepare a prescription for the discontinued product, tailoring the strength, dosage form, and flavor to your pet’s specific needs.
